Judge Rules Meek Mill Cannot Tour This Month
UPDATE: Attorneys for Meek Mill asked a judge to lift any ban on travel restrictions so he can tour easier.
Meek Mill has asked a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania judge to loosen travel restrictions so he doesn't have as hard a time touring.
According to NBC 10 Philadelphia, attorneys for the Maybach Music Group rapper filed a request last Wednesday for a Philly judge to lift any ban on travel so he can have an easier time touring. Defense attorney Dennis Cogan says that Mill's earning power is limited by the ban.
But the 25-year-old artist may not be in luck. Assistant District Attorney Noel DeSantis told The Philadelphia Inquirer that she will oppose the request, stating that he was already cut a break in serving only eight months of an 11- to 23-month sentence for being found guilty of assault, gun possession and drug charges.
"I'm out here doing good. Until I start doing bad, that's when I think it should be a problem," said Mill in an interview with NBC.

UPDATE: According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Municipal Court Judge Genece Brinkle ruled that Meek Mill will not be able to tour this month. He planned to appear on "The Conan O'Brien Show" on Wednesday before jetting to Africa, but his tour will now "be limited to the streets of North Philadelphia."
