Meek Mill has reportedly been sentenced to serve three to six months in county jail because the local DA was "worried about his behavior while on probation." Details are scare right now, but earlier this year, Meek stated that his longstanding probation held him back from moving out of Philadelphia.
It's not clear when Meek will have to begin serving this sentence or if he will ultimately appeal, but there is a chance he could be in jail when his upcoming album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, is released in September. Stay tuned for more details when they become available.

UPDATE: NBC 10 reports that Meek violated his probation by missing meetings with his probation officer and displaying attitude towards her during meetings and on Twitter. According to Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney Noel Ann DeSantis:
"The defendant's clear attitude with probation while reporting on May 15, his Twitter accounts being derogatory to the probation department and this DA and others in this court system, the judge found that all these are in tactical violation of probation."
However, it seems as though Meek won't be serving the full three to six months sentence after all. Karen Civil says that he will be released from jail in three to four weeks.
