On Wednesday (Nov. 8), embattled rapper Meek Mill officially entered the Pennsylvania State Correctional Institution at Graterford in Montgomery County, days after being Sentenced for violating a 2008 gun and drug case.
A new mugshot was revealed on Wednesday showing the rapper clad in a yellow jumpsuit, staring directly into the camera. According to a source in NBC Philadelphia , the yellow prison garb is worn by newly-received prisons for Grateford and is different from the standard department of corrections jumpsuit.
Meek’s two to four year sentence derives from a failed drug test and failure to comply with a court order, which restricted his travel. Despite public outcry from the hip-hop community and his lawyer, Joe Tacopina, vowing to appeal Common Plea Judge Genece Brinkley’s decision, Meek will now have to serve his time behind bars.
