Meek Mill’s parole case with crooked Judge Genece Brinkley is one of the most high-profile cases in Hip Hop history, as politicians and fellow influential artists publicly advocated for him.
One of those people was Philadelphia 76ers owner, Michael Rubin, who also partnered with the Philly emcee to create the REFORM alliance to fight for criminal justice. During a recent interview with Hot 97, Rubin revealed that another influential figure who went to bat for Meek during one of his toughest times was legendary NBA player, Allen Iverson.
“We have this investigator that’s working non-stop for us and we found a family that’s been tortured by [Meek’s] judge. I remember calling Allen and saying this guy’s a big fan of yours I need you to call him for me… Because everyone’s scared of the judge and here’s a not well off family that’s been tortured by this judge… and I called Allen and said like, ‘I need you to get these people comfortable enough to talk to me.’ Allen called them and spent 20 minutes on the phone with them because he wanted to help Meek and help the situation because he cared that much.”
He also discussed Brooklyn Nets’ recent deals and revealed that people actually gave up their season passes when he publicly supported Meek Mill.
