Watch Meek Mill Speak Out During First Interview Since Release From Prison

Stars big and small condemned the prison term, including former rivals like Drake who said Meek Mill should be freed soon after the conviction. Upon release from prison, Meek Mill was taken courtside to the Philadelphia 76ers playoff game where he was greeted warmly by the team and the city of Philadelphia as a whole. On social media, the recently-freed musician released the following statement to his fans and followers in connection to this ongoing trail.

"I got a lot of responsibility", he said in an interview with Lester Holt of NBC Nightly News.

To the Philadelphia District Attorney's office, I'm grateful for your commitment to justice - not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct. Last November, the rapper was arrested for violating probations over drug and gun possession charges that were made nearly ten years ago, when Mill was only 21.

Mill, who was ordered out on bail by the Pennsylvania's Supreme Court yesterday afternoon, told Holt: 'I don't feel free. There's alot of light shining on my situation'. "This is about how he can be the symbolic change agent that was needed for major criminal justice reform. that's why you should care".

Holt also spoke with Michael Rubin, owner of the 76ers, and Philadelphia D.A. Larry Krasner.

The ruling came after prosecutors said they agreed with his lawyers that he should get a new trial because of questions raised about the arresting officer. He even got to ring the bell. "I immediately said a quick prayer, and got ready to go".

'In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career'.
