Rapper Meek Mill was released on unsecured bail on Tuesday, following months of outrage and protests from both the public and prominent figures.

The Pennslyvania Supreme Court ordered Robert Rimheek Williams, also known as Meek Mill, to be released on bail. This comes after months of sharp criticism of his arrest from people ranging to comedian Kevin Hart, to 76ers Co-Owner Michael Rubin, as well as the general public. Meek Mill was originally sentenced to 2-4 years to a state prison in Chester, PA, following a violation of parole stemming from a gun related incident almost a decade ago. After his release, Meek said in a statement: “Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues.”

His legal team hopes to get the conviction overturned, as well as returning Meek to his music career.
