As the saying goes, “there’s light at the end of the tunnel,” and 2018 has been a manifestation of that in Meek Mill’s life. The rapper was sentenced to two to four years in prison in November last year for violating his probation stemming from a crime he committed about a decade ago.

After spending 5 months in jail, the 31-year old Philadelphia native was granted bail by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court pending the outcome of his appeal.

His post-prison album, “Championships,” debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 selling over 200,000 copies in its first week.
