Yesterday the news broke that the Meek Mill would once again be heading to prison. And along with many celebrities in the industry, two of his big homies, JAY-Z and Rick Ross, have spoken up on social media to show their support for him.

Rumor Report | Meek Mill sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for violating probation

Not long after Meek was handed the unfortunate news, JAY-Z addressed the situation. In a statement posted to his Facebook page, Hov said, “The sentence handed down by the Judge — against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer — is unjust and heavy handed.

Earlier today, Rick Ross broke his silence, delivering a message of optimism to his protege. “Tests are not for the faint at heart! . Every time an obstacle crosses his path, he fights his way through and comes out triumphant. I’ve watched him 1st hand fight this unjust system for close to a decade. But my dawg is a warrior! You know the family is already holding you down during this time of test. Here’s to the future! It will be BRIGHT! #doubleMDreamchasers,” wrote the Teflon Don in a post sent to Instagram.
