As Meek Mill returns to prison to serve a 2-4 year sentence for probation violations, a member of his legal team believes the penalty is excessive due to a personal vendetta the judge has against the rapper for not dedicating a song to her.
TMZ reports that one of Meek’s attorneys, Joe Tacopina, maintains the judge is punishing him because he didn’t dedicate a Boyz II Men song to her.
Joe Tacopina, tells TMZ … even prosecutors had recommended no jail time. According to Tacopina, Meek and the the judge are from the same part of Philly and know some of the same people.
Tacopina says the judge suggested to Meek — during a meeting in chambers last year — he do a remake of Boyz II Men’s, “On Bended Knee” … and give her, the judge, a shout-out. Meek thought she was kidding and laughed.
Tacopina claims she said, “I’m not kidding,” and when Meek refused to do it, she replied … “Okay, suit yourself.”
Mill has been arrested twice this year and charged with misdemeanor assault after an altercation with two airport employees.
