New Meek Mill is still on its way even though the rapper is behind bars.
A week after announcing the September 9th release date for his sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, the Philadelphia rapper was arrested for violating his parole on gun and drug charges.
Behind bars or not, an Atlantic Records rep tells AllHipHop.com that the album will be released as scheduled.
Meek was already denied an early release on his three-to-six-month sentence. The rapper was sent to jail after a photo surfaced of him holding an automatic weapon, which is a violation of his parole. His lawyers argued that the gun was simply a prop for a video, but the judge didn't buy it. The earliest Meek will be released is October 11th, provided he completes mandatory anger management and fatherhood courses.
