Rapper faces no legal charges for releasing a song while under house arrest

Meek Mill was thought to be playing with fire after he released a new diss track while under house arrest but it has now now been clarified that the rapper indeed has the permission to release songs, though on a certan little condition...

Sources close to the case have revealed to american entertainment news network, TMZ, that Meek Mill, got an order of clarification 2 weeks after his sentencing.

The judge had said he could not record ANY music during his 90 days of house arrest, but then added other details to the judgement.

The ruling is now further clarified that Meek can indeed release any music in order to "protect his brand," but it has to be on free platforms like SoundCloud and YouTube.

This explains why he dropped that remix of Drake's 'Summer Sixteen' a few days ago.

Releasing the song has now been shown to be totally legal.

Time will tell, though, if the move was sensible or terribly  ill-advised.
