The Wins and Losses rapper's attorney, Joe Tacopina, plans to appeal the ruling, accusing the judge of inappropriate acts.

"He, of course, was laughing and thought it was a joke".

Tacopina told the New York Times that Brinkley behaved inappropriately over the course of the case, including giving the rapper unsolicited advice about who should manage his career and asking Mill to include her name in a song. "She's enamored with him", Tacopina said. "She said, 'I'm serious.' He refused to do that", he said. "It's an infatuation, it's some sort of obsession". She also cited him and his managers for repeatedly scheduling concerts after her August 17 order barring performances outside Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties. He also claims that the Judge wanted Meek to quit Roc Nation and sign with a friend of hers for a management deal. Though Weisberg has no direct first-hand knowledge of the details of the case, he adds that if Tacopina's claims are true, "this is indeed wildly disproportionate, for the violations - and in any event, the judge's intrusion into the probation and community service is really weird".

"She showed up and sat at the table". "In order for us to move past the s**t we going through, we have to address it". We got real love for u out here KING. I'm sure of that.

Judge Genece E. Brinkley Brinkley cited Mill's two arrests this year (both cases were dismissed on the grounds that he complete community service) and also said Meek and his managers scheduling concerts that required travel despite the judge barring performances outside of Philadelphia or Montgomery County.

He was originally arrested in 2008, and spent eight months in prison following a drug dealing and gun possession conviction.

The reaction to Mill's sentence was swift and angry among hip-hop fans and creators. On Wednesday, a petition aimed at Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf started gaining traction to the tune of almost 40,000 signatures at the time of this writing.

"Because this case is subject to future litigation, there will not be a comment at this time", a representative for the court told Business Insider.
