Is Meek Mill's career over?

Rapper Meek Mill has been sentenced to two to four years in prison for violating his probation, according to United States media reports.

Mill was immediately remanded into custody after removing his gold watch and other personal items.

Under the sentence, Mill wouldn't be eligible for parole for at least two years.

Meek Mill's lawyer said they would appeal the sentencing. It's a currency of sorts to flirt with that danger.

- Rapper Meek Mill was back in court Monday and did not get the outcome for which he was hoping. He was then placed on probation for five years, a period that has been extended several times. He spent a few months in jail and was released early.

In March, the ex-boyfriend of Nicki Minaj was charged with misdemeanor assault after an altercation with employees at St. Louis International Airport. He presented himself on it as a changed man who had learned his lessons the hard way.

Shooting at Texas Southern Baptist Church Kills 20 Worshipers
One witness, Carrie Matula, told NBC News: "We heard semi-automatic gunfire ... we're only about 50 yards away from this church". It comes just over a month after Stephen Paddock killed 58 people by opening fire on a concert in Las Vegas from his hotel room.

Mill was quoted as pleading for mercy with the judge, saying: "I'm human". "God sometimes puts the toughest battles on his strongest shoulders". Always here for you man! "My brother for life".

Below, see more impassioned reactions to Meek's sentence from T.I., Rick Ross, and more celebs.

"Every time I go to probation it's a new thing", he wrote in now deleted tweets. "HOLD YO HEAD @MeekMill streets chose u". "I spit reality", he told me this year. Now, he's provided more insight to the case and what he believes to be the real reasoning behind the judge's sentencing. It'll test the loyalty of fans who have stuck with him so far, but who won't wait forever.

Meek Mill is back behind bars because the judge has a long-standing vendetta against him. according to the rapper's legal team.

Mill is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation management company, so the entertainment mogul is invested in seeing Mills' career endure.

The criminal justice system has been a recurring subject for the rapper/mogul this year.

In a post on Facebook, the kingpin rapper wrote, "The sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed". According to Hov, who chronicled systemic injustice in his Kalief Browder documentary last winter, Meek's sentence is just another tragic symptom of a deeply flawed justice system.
