Meek Mill Banned From Touring for Probation Violation
Meek Mill won't be raking in the dough for performances due to a touring ban placed on him by a Philadelphia judge.
The Maybach Music Group spitter cannot travel anywhere until Jan. 16 -- outside of an upcoming Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall -- due to a probation violation, reports NBC. This ban also hinders his appearances on 'Conan' and a stint in Africa.
The 'Dreams and Nightmares' creator was convicted in 2008, on gun and drug charges and according to the courts, failed to meet several stipulations of his probation. He reportedly violated the terms of his probation by performing when told not to and failing to check in with his probation officer.
"You need to get yourself together," Judge Genece Brinkley said during Monday's two-and-a-half hour probation hearing. "You are going to be home for Christmas and New Year's."
He was not happy about the decision. "I'm just staying out of jail, man," he stated during the hearing. "I have bills. I owe people money. I take care of my family."
