According to court documents, Meek Mill will be facing Judge Brinkley on April 16, 2018 for a motion filed under the Pennsylvania Post Conviction Relief Act (PCRA).

Attorney Brian McMonagle reentered his appearance today .. this motion comes just two days after Al Sharpton paid a visit to Philly with Meek’s New York based lawyer Joe Tacopina for a #Justice4Meek rally at the University of Pennsylvania.

The rapper phoned in to the Reform Philly rally Tuesday through his attorney, Joe Tacopina, who put him on speaker and let him talk into the mic. The rally is aimed at “Bringing Injustice to Light,” and was partially created with Meek in mind … hence the hashtag, #Justice4Meek.

Jay-Z’s music platform, Tidal, streamed the event live. Meek’s mom was also in attendance with Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and retired boxer Bernard Hopkins, Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, Rev. Al Sharpton and fellow Philadelphia-based rapper Lil Uzi Vert in support of Mill, who was sentenced to state prison for two to four years last year after allegedly twice violating an 11-year probation term.

When we asked Malcom what his message to Meek would be if he was watching, he told us ““The positive thing out of all of this, if there’s any, is that he has a chance to stand for millions of people that deal with this on a regular basis — and as long as he continues to fight it, and in turn, we fight for him, in turn we fight for everybody.”
