Drake has joined the voices of numerous others in the music industry calling for rapper Meek Mill to be freed.
The Philadelphia rapper was sentenced to 2-4 months in prison for violating his parole, with many voices in the black community describing the sentence as harsh.
JAY Z, who penned an op-ed for the New York Times, described the sentence as “unjust and heavy-handed”.
During his Boy Meets World Tour stop in Melbourne, Australia, he noticed a fan wearing a “Free Meek Mill” t-shirt.
Pointing at the crowd member, Drake said: “I see you got the “Free Meek Mill” t-shirt on. ‘Free Meek Mill too man, for real. You right.”

The two rappers have a complex history, being involved in one of the biggest rap feuds in recent years after Meek Mill accused Drake of using a ghostwriter.
