Meek Mill is a free man after being released on bail while he appeals drug and gun violations from a 2008 incident. This ends a five-month stay in prison for the Philadelphia rapper.

Meek Mill wasted no time after being freed from the state prison at Camp Hill, taking off in a helicopter and flying straight to the Philadelphia 76ers’ series-clinching win over the Miami Heat in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

While the 20,478 fans in the sold-out Wells Fargo Center gave him an incredibly warm welcome, a large number of his peers shared their happiness at his release on social media.

From JAY-Z and Rick Ross to Juelz Santana and Kevin Hart, everyone wished Meek well in his ongoing fight to appeal his case and offered their congratulations on finally being free again.
