PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia judge says Meek Mill will stay in prison because he’s a “danger to the community.”

Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley on Friday denied a request to allow the 30-year-old rapper to be bailed out of a Pennsylvania prison.

Mill’s attorney says they plan to appeal her ruling, saying it continues a “long pattern of unfair treatment.”

The judge’s decision comes after the state Superior Court last week told her to act “without further delay” on a 2-week-old request to free the rapper.

Mill was sentenced last month to two to four years for violating probation on a roughly decade-old gun and drug case.

Mill’s probation officer and a prosecutor had recommended he not be jailed.

His imprisonment has sparked backlash in opinion pieces, rallies, billboards and bus ads.

  2. Good-his dumbass belongs just where he is.
    Meek was given leniency by the judge when he could’ve been sentenced for possession of a gun.
    He continued to VIOLATE the terms of his PAROLE-so it is what it is.
