Meek Mill will appeal on Tuesday to a Pennsylvania Judge's decision to sentence him to up to four years in prison for probation violations in a case.

This appeal came from the rapper after Criminal Justice Reform Advocates said this case illustrates racial bias in the system.

Rapper Meek Mill was sentenced to two to four years in prison after a pair of arrests violated probation conditions relating to 2008 gun and drug convictions by a judge in November 2017.

The 33-year-old rapper was jailed for five months before the state's top court granted him bail following a campaign to demand rapper's release.
