Meek Mill’s criminal background is affecting his pockets severely. According to reports, a Philadelphia judge has block the “House Party” hitmaker from traveling outside of his hometown of Philadelphia until January 16th (1 month), stripping him of any revenue from a planned international tour, in addition to missing network TV appearances.
Meek’s lawyers argued for the rapper in Municipal Court yesterday (December 17) reports NBC News, but the judge was not hearing it. The Maybach Music emcee was set to tour in Africa, with stops in Lagos, Nigeria, Libreville, Gabon. In addition, a scheduled appearance on The Conan O’Brien Show was pulled.
“I got nothing to hide, I’m working,” Meek Mill told NBC. “I’m out here doing good. Until I start doing something bad that’s when I think it should be a problem.”
He is currently only allowed to perform at a Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall.
The 25-year-old rapper was arrested in 2008 for a gun and drug possession. Mill told NBC10 that he needs to make money touring so he can support his child, his family and an entourage of dozens.
