Meek Mill fans the world over are celebrating the release of the Philadelphia rapper from prison this week, and he's now making the media rounds. The state of mind required to survive in that kind of environment can leave ex-prisoners confused after they get out.
Philadelphia-born rapper Meek Mill has attended an National Basketball Association playoff game in his first public appearance since being released from prison while he appeals decade-old gun and drug convictions.
