Meek Mill is getting lots of love this holiday season despite being behind bars.
Houston Rockets star, James Harden, made a friendly visit to the State Correctional Institution in Chester, PA this week to help lift the spirits of the rapper, who was locked up last month for violation of probation.
Harden apparently described his visit on social media and suggested that the rapper’s “spirit is high” and that “hopefully we can get him out by February.”
He added, “Told me to tell y’all when he get out he got some (fire) for y’all.”
According to reports, Harden even gifted Meek with a pair of Free Meek sneakers that he also plans on wearing during Thursday night’s game against the Celtics.
The NBA player has been very vocal about the unjust ruling of Meek’s sentence. Back in November, he pushed hard for fans to “Save Meek: and to “Stand with Meek.”
In fact, he advocated for folks to sign a petition to help get Mill released. He wrote, “Due to an enormously grave miscarriage of justice, we ask you to read and sign the petition for @MeekMill on @Changedotorg: Justice4Meek.com #FreeMeekMill #Justice4Meek.”
Last month, the 30-year-old was sentenced to 2-4 years behind bars for violation of probation in a gun and drug case from 2008. The judge made the call after citing a failed drug test and failure to comply with a court order restricting the rapper’s travel.
