Meek Mill will once again appear in front of Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley after she agreed on Friday, November 17, to hold a hearing on petitions by the rapper's lawyers to free him on bail while they appeal her 2-4 year prison sentence," according to the Philadelphia Enquirer.

In the motion filed by Meek's attorneys they ask Brinkley to release their client on bail not secured by property or other assets.

Meek has been on probation since 2009, stemming from a drug and gun conviction.

“Since being convicted in this case a decade ago, he has suffered no new convictions, and has not engaged in other criminal activity,” their motion reads. “He does not present any danger to the community. He has matured, become a responsible father, acquired a profession in which he has excelled, conquered a drug habit, and generally been rehabilitated.”

The scheduling of the hearing is a required and routine step. It does not mean Brinkley will agree to give the 30-year old entertainer, born Robert Williams, bail.

During a hearing on November 6, Brinkley, determined that Meek had violated his probation by twice getting arrested this year, as well as other transgressions. Since then, there has been a public outcry from those who believe the decision to send him to prison was heavy handed.

On November 13, a rally was held in Philadelphia protesting Meek's imprisonment. Hundreds of people attended, including Hall of Fame basketball player Julius Erving, rapper Rick Ross and Eagles player Malcolm Jenkins.

A change.org petition asking Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to look into the case has garnered over 379,000 signatures.

However, Wolf has said his hands are tied by state law.
