Rick Ross, Julius Erving & Others Rally for Meek Mill in Philadelphia

Although Rubin said that Mill "might not have handled himself well" with Brinkley, he also expressed a desire to "help Mill realize his potential as an artist and use his growing influence and resources to give back to Philadelphia and other communities like us". Those charges were dismissed. "You basically thumbed your nose at me".

The FBI is investigating the Philadelphia judge that threw rapper Meek Mill back in jail last week.

Mill's legal team also alleges that Judge Brinkley asked the Philadelphia rapper to remake Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee" with a shoutout to her.

"Brinkley replied, "'OK, suit yourself, '" according to Tacopina.

They accused her of trying to keep those statements off the record so they couldn't challenge her on them.

Tacopina said Mill laughed off the request and told Brinkley: "I can't do that".

Supporters of Mill, including Jay Z, argued that the sentence was too harsh and should not have included incarceration.

A motion to reconsider the sentence is the first step in any criminal appeal to the state Superior Court, the intermediate appeals court between the trial courts and the state Supreme Court. Meek's attorney, Joe Tacopina, claimed that the Judge wanted Meek to leave Hov's Roc Nation and sign with Philly music figure Charlie Mack, whom Meek worked with early in his career.

But Joe Tacopina, a lawyer for Mill based in New York City - who was not in the private meeting - has said Brinkley asked Mill previous year to record a version of a Boyz II Men ballad, "On Bended Knee", and to mention the judge in it.

Brinkley's office did not respond to a request for comment and instead referred CNN's request to Gabriel Roberts, a spokesman for the 1st Judicial District of Pennsylvania, which declined to comment as the matter is "subject to future litigation".

- DeSantis: "Your Honor, [Meek]'s not supposed to be around anyone who is under supervision and be around known felons". "That was the only exception that you made".

A 2014 transcript shows an exchange between the judge and the prosecutor Noel DeSantis in which it emerges that Brinkley allowed Mill to meet with Mack even though he is a convicted felon, TMZ reported.
