Amid mounting backlash over rapper Meek Mill's prison sentence, hundreds of activists and prominent personalities - including Rick Ross, the Philadelphia Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins and the Philadelphia 76ers' Julius Erving - gathered at Philadelphia's Criminal Justice Center on Monday for a rally protesting the rapper's imprisonment.

"The difference because the person we're talking about today has multi-platinum albums and has resources the cameras are watching". "I want you to know that I am personally invested in him so that he can help others".

Brinkley also apparently turned up to Meek's community service, which is unheard of. If she does not respond, they can take the case to Superior Court. Mill refused, and Brinkley replied, "Suit yourself".

Brinkley is reportedly connected to Mack, who has repeatedly petitioned Mill to drop his current manager and rehire him.

Tacopina said Mill laughed off the request and told Brinkley: "I can't do that". "Talk about you fans being disappointed, how about me?" she said in 2014. "JAY-Z is out there going absolutely wild", he continued.

A motion to reconsider the sentence is the first step in any criminal appeal to the state Superior Court, the intermediate appeals court between the trial courts and the state Supreme Court.

Overall, the lawyers argued, "Each of the instances reveal a pattern of extrajudicial, personal and injudicious conduct ... warranting the recusal".

So far, Brinkley has not commented on the matter. Meek's attorney, Joe Tacopina, claimed that the Judge wanted Meek to leave Hov's Roc Nation and sign with Philly music figure Charlie Mack, whom Meek worked with early in his career.

The prosecutor called for no prison time, but Judge Brinkley said during the sentencing hearing that the 30-year-old musician had wasted several chances to clean up his act.

Such a meeting would have violated Mill's terms of probation without the judge's waiver.

- DeSantis: "Your Honor, [Meek]'s not supposed to be around anyone who is under supervision and be around known felons. Your Honor made an exception back in the day with the management to Mr. Mac", according to the transcript obtained by TMZ.
