A rally for Meek Mill is set to be held this evening (Nov 13) in Philadelphia. Mill has received a lot of support online, including from actor and Philadelphia native Kevin Hart. Many are outraged after learning Meek's sentence came as a result of two arrests for incidents in which charges were eventually dropped, and the stiff sentence has led many to speak out in support of Meek.

In addition to Rozay, Hall-of-Fame basketball player & 76er Julius Irving, aka Dr. J, was also present at the march, giving a speech to the crowd, but was almost drowned out by "Free Meek" chants. National Football League star and the leader of the new wave of anti social injustice, Colin Kaepernick, has also weighed in with a message on Twitter. "I'm here for one reason, to promote my brother Meek Mill", he said.
