Meek Mill went to court prepared for the worst but still hoping for the best. But the judge didn’t go easy on him this time. The Philly emcee was sentenced to two to four years in prison for violating his probation in a nearly decade old drug and weapon case.

Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley cited a failed drug test and failure to follow traveling rules of his probation when sentencing the dream chaser. Brinkley said she has been trying to help the rapper for almost ten years but he continues to do what he wants.

Meek’s attorney vows to appeal.
