Rapper Meek Mill has been released from prison, but he still believes that he is far from being free. I got a lot of important people depending on me.

"No, I don't feel free", Mill told Holt during the broadcast.

In a statement to USA Today, Tacopina said, "We are thrilled that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has directed Judge Brinkley to immediately issue an order releasing Meek on bail...as we have said all along, Meek was unjustly convicted and should not have spent a single day in jail".

The Philadelphia-born rapper rang a replica Liberty Bell at center court of the Philadelphia 76ers' first-round clinching playoff game Tuesday less than two hours after being freed on bail while he appeals decade-old gun and drug convictions. Formerly known as Robert Rihmeek Williams, the star sat down with Lester Holt of NBC News for his first interview post-release.

Meek Mill, born Robert Rihmeek Williams, was sentenced in November 2017 to two to four years in prison on parole violations on a almost 10-year-old gun charge. "He caught a charge when he was, like 19. There's a lot of light shed on my situation".

The rapper said he's been experiencing a bit of a "culture shock" while transitioning back to reality after spending the last five months in a cell in a Chester County prison. While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive. "And [I'm] not talking about them people, the public officials". Meek Mill tweeted that he plans to work with his legal team to "overturn this unwarranted conviction" and said he looks forward to reuniting with his family and resuming his musical career. "I'm talking about the men that's depending on me (that are) going through the same think I'm going through". He rang the opening bell before the National Basketball Association play-off game. The sentence was two to four years in prison, this sparked outrage from activist and supporters such as Jay-Z, T.I, Rick Ross and the 76srs co owner Michael Rubin.
