Five months ago, the great Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill went to prison on a parole violation, causing the delay of his Dreams Worth More Than Money album release and generally making the rap universe a less exciting place. Rap Radar reports that Meek was released today, a little more than a month early from his sentence maximum. He won’t be able to travel or tour until he finishes his community service and anger management counseling requirements. But he’ll be home for Christmas and for the release of Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday, which features Meek on two different tracks. Get ready for rap to get an energy-jolt that it could really use right about now.
