Popular rapper Meek Mill sits behind bars in the Philadelphia suburbs after a judge sentenced him to two to four years for violating probation in a almost decade-old gun and drug case.

Mill owned up to the violations in his only statement during the hearing and said that jailing him would likely end his musical career.

"That, right there, was a totally inappropriate request", said Tacopina, adding that Brinkley also allegedly asked Mill to leave his current management company - Roc Nation - and sign with a Philadelphia local who she has a personal relationship with. "And when a judge says to someone can you re-record a song, mention my name and do a shout-out to me about how I [saved] up your life and he says no?"

Meek's mugshot was reportedly taken at the state prison in Graterford, Montgomery County, PA. While there is some confusion online about whether the petition was started by Wolf, it's clearly addressed to him and the petition states it will be delivered to Wolf. Yesterday, one of his lawyers, Joe Tacopina, accused Meek's judge of "inappropriate" acts.

"It's some sort of an obsession", Tacopina said.

Mill, born Robert Rihmeek Williams, was arrested twice this year and was placed under house arrest for 90 days last year for a probation violation.

The transcript of that closed proceeding also was sealed at Mill's and DeSimone's requests.

Since exploding onto the Hip-Hop scene back in 2011, Meek Mill has had a series of legal issues.

Brinkley said the prosecutor was too new to the case to understand how Mill just "does what he wants".

A spokesman for the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania had no comment, citing the fact that the matter is "subject to future litigation".

Then in August, PEOPLE confirmed that Mill was charged with reckless endangerment in New York City.

Mill acknowledged that he went into treatment earlier this year for addiction to Percocet.

Meek was handed his lengthy prison sentence after violating the terms of his probation on a 2009 drugs and weapons case. "I'm asking for mercy".
