FBI Launches Probe Into Meek Mill Judge

  • Rapper Meek Mill arrives at the criminal justice center in Philadelphia Monday Nov. 6 2017

Genece Brinkley, the Philadelphia judge who's sending Meek Mill to prison for parole violation, reportedly allowed the rapper to work with a convicted felon several years ago. Tacopina also claimed the judge asked Mill to leave Roc Nation to sign with her friend's recording label, and to record a cover of a Boyz II Men song as a tribute to her.

The FBI is reportedly investigating Brinkley's alleged relationship with Mack and whether or not she tried to use her authority to persuade Meek's business decisions. "The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships", the site reports of the FBI's exclusive statement. There may also be a "extortionate demand" involved. Despite the Federal Bureau of Investigation source allegedly claiming that he told Meek that his ties to her could help with his legal case, Mack adamantly refutes such a thing. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom and followed Mill's case ever since April of a year ago.

Mill had been on probation from a 2008 gun and drug case. Earlier this year, Meek was arrested for popping wheelies on his dirt bike while riding in uptown Manhattan and for getting into a fight at a St. Louis airport.

Joe Tacopina, another lawyer representing the "Wins and Losses" rapper, told Billboard the judge was "enamored" with Mill and showed up at his community service, something rarely done by judges.

"(Meek's) frustrated, really frustrated and knows he's being treated different than anyone else", Tacopina told CNN in an interview last week. "If his name was John Smith, he wouldn't be in jail and he certainly wouldn't be on probation".
