One of Philly rapper Meek Mill's songs is called "Amen," which is exactly what he may be saying when he's released from prison today.
Meek Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams, is slated to be released today from the Hoffman House, a private North Philadelphia prison that has a contract with the city, according to Shawn Hawes, Philadelphia prisons spokeswoman.
Mill, 27, has been incarcerated since July 11th when a judge sentenced him to three-to-six months in prison for violating his probation on a drug-and-gun case from 2009.
Since then, Mill's lawyers have twice petitioned for his early release - in August and October - without success. Hawes said Mill was being released today following a petition his lawyer filed for his early release yesterday.
Mill's current lawyer, Tariq K. E-Shabazz, did not immediately return requests for comment.
