Meek was jailed in 2008 on drug dealing and gun charges.

He's been on probation ever since and was arrested in March after a fight in an airport and again in August for reckless driving, but both charges were dropped.

However, a judge said both arrests were a breach of his probation.

Prosecutors also provided evidence of failed drugs tests.

Jay-Z, who's Roc Nation company represents Meek Mill, called his punishment unjust and heavy handed.

His colleagues in the industry have all taken to social media to offer words of support to the Philadelphia native.
