Lawyers: Judge wanted favors from Meek Mill
CNN —  

Meek Mill might not be able to attend this year’s Super Bowl, but the imprisoned rapper was with his home team in spirit on Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles took the field to his 2012 song “Dreams and Nightmares” — the ultimate underdog anthem.

For the first time on Sunday, the Eagles became Super Bowl champions, knocking off the New England Patriots 41-33 at US Bank Stadium.

“Hold What A Min, Y’all thought I was finish! #FreeMeek, Congrats @Eagles and the whole city of Philadelphia on their 1st one in franchise history,” NBA star LeBron James tweeted, quoting the song. “I know the feeling first hand. S/O my dog @LG_Blount(BacktoBack chips).”

Mill was sentenced to two to four years in prison in September by Philadelphia Judge Genece E. Brinkley, who cited a failed drug test and the rapper’s noncompliance with a court order restricting his travel.
