This week, rapper Meek Mill has been denied bail for the second time. According to reports from Billboard, a Pennsylvania appeals court has denied a request to free the rapper on bail.

Records seen by Billboard indicate the state’s Superior Court denied a request to free the 30-year-old musician on bail Wednesday, December 6.

The most recent denial follows an incident on Monday December 4, when Judge Genece Brinkley denied Mill’s request for an emergency bail hearing.

The Philadelphia rapper was originally sentenced to two to four years in prison by Judge Brinkley in early November for violating his probation for charges relating to a 2008 drug and gun conviction.

Concerned citizens in Philadelphia and beyond, as well as the rap community at large, have showed their support for Meek Mill. JAY-Z penned a New York Times op-ed decrying the U.S. criminal justice system’s treatment of black people, reacting to Mill’s sentence which he called “heavy-handed.”
