Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill, who is in prison for violating probation, and his lawyers have long alleged that Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley urged Mill to ditch his management team at Roc Nation in a private meeting.

But following a new Inquirer and Daily News report on ethical questions surrounding Mill's case, the judge unsealed the transcript of that meeting. The transcript shows the judge didn't in fact make that recommendation, at least not then. It doesn't, however, put to bed that rumor about Brinkley asking Meek to record a Boyz II Men song.

Mill recently made his own recommendation — to Colin Kaepernick to add Philly's Youth Service Inc. to his Million Dollar Pledge. The former NFL quarterback just announced he'll donate $10,000 to the organization, and Mill will match it.

The Super Bowl frenzy has begun in earnest in Minneapolis, and our reporters, editors, and photographers are there to bring you coverage all week. Need even more Eagles action? Sign up for the Early Birds newsletter for your daily football fix.
