Report: Meek Mill Files A Motion To Have Judge Removed Over Personal Vendetta
Okay, so Meek Mill recently landed behind bar; a judge sentenced the Philadelphia rapper to two to four years in prison for violating probation, along with a failed drug test. 

The rapper (who was born Robert Williams) was arrested in March after a fight at a St. Louis airport, though the charges were later dropped. He also pleaded guilty to reckless driving in October, after he posted videos of himself doing wheelies on a dirt bike in NYC.

Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley (she previously sentenced to Meek to 90 days of house arrest following a probation violation in February 2016) felt he had "just [been] thumbing [his] nose at me" with his many violations.

This sentencing has not been received so well. JAY-Z talked about it at a concert the other day, saying, “Meek caught a charge when he was, like, 19 […] He's 30 now. He's been on probation for 11 years. [expletive] 11 years. The judge gave him two to four years because he got arrested for being on a bike and popping a [expletive] wheelie."

Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, announced on November 7th that he intends to appeal the “ridiculous case.” Thousands of people also lent their signatures to a petition that aimed to right this wrong. 

Meek believes that he is getting a raw deal because his judge hates him. TMZ is now saying that Joe has filed a motion to have Brinkley removed. It also claims that an official complaint with the judicial conduct board has been made.

There was also quite a bit of eyebrow-raising muttering about the judge telling Meek to do a remake of Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee" in the middle of a meeting in chambers last year and She reportedly demanded Meek Mill give her a shout-out on the song.

Meek apparently thought she was joking and laughed. Joe insists that she then said, “I'm not kidding," 
When Meek refused to do it, she replied, "Okay, suit yourself." 

“I gave you break after break, and you basically just thumbed your nose at this court,” Brinkley reportedly told Meek.

"I may have made a mistake but I never had the intention of disrespecting you," he replied.

Meek (in the courtroom) previously told the judge, "I’m human. I’m not perfect […] I’m asking for mercy. You gave me the ladder to do what I have to do to prevail in my struggle. I made it this far, I can’t really go back and start over."

Oh and in regards to that petition, it seems that Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf says he cannot actually adjust Meek’s sentence, as it would be against state law.
