A judge has officially denied Meek Mill’s request to reconsider his lengthy prison sentence.

Meek’s team filed documents for a new hearing requesting to be let out on bail, but judge Genece E. Brinkley shut the requests all the way.

Brinkley, the judge who Meek’s team claims is “enamored” with the Philly native and is being unfair, filed paperwork explaining why she denied the rapper’s bail hearing.

Aside from there being protocol when it comes to asking for early release, bail post sentence is for “exceptional cases for compelling reasons.” This means, folks, that Meek’s case is not “exceptional.”

Brinkley, who also denied requests for her to step down as presiding judge, explained in court documents, “Defendant received proper notice of all alleged probation violations in advance of his hearing. The sentence imposed was not manifestly excessive and this Court stated sufficient reasons on the record to support a state sentence of 2 to 4 years.”

If you recall, Mill’s team claims that  the judge’s “bias and…unusual personal interest” stems from Meek denying her request to have the rapper re-record a Boyz II Men song and give her a shout-out.

“This bald allegation has no basis in reality. There is zero evidence to support this claim,” she wrote of the song request. “The court has repeatedly told Defendant that he cannot demand special treatment just because he has chosen to be an entertainer.”

Last year, just before the holidays, Meek was sentenced for violation of probation.
