Jay-Z has branded Meek Mill's jail sentence as "unjust and heavy handed", as Kevin Hart and T.I. also come to his defence.
The 30-year-old rapper was sentenced to a minimum of two years in prison on Monday (06.11.17) after violating the terms of his probation from his drug and weapons case back in 2009.
And now, fellow rapper Jay-Z has slammed the court's decision to sentence Meek Mill - who could spend up to 48 months in state prison - and insisted he will "always stand by" the star.
Taking to Facebook, 'The Story of O.J.' rapper wrote: "The sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed. We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career."
