After a judge declared that the rapper was restricted from performing or working until his planned sentencing date of February 5, Meek is now missing out on lucrative opportunities.
According to Page Six, Meek Mill was scheduled to travel to Hollywood in November to discuss a potential role in 12 O’Clock Boys, a film produced by Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment. Meek was lined up to play the role of Wheelie Wayne in the film, which is “based on the story of the infamous West Baltimore illegal-dirt-bike riders who were the subject of an indie documentary that debuted at [the South by Southwest Festival] in 2013.”
In addition to his probation violation ruling, Meek ‘s travel restrictions have forced him to miss a Las Vegas concert with girlfriend Nicki Minaj at Drai’s on New Year’s Eve. Sources reveal Meek was forecast to make an estimated $140,000 for the performance.
“He’s at a defining moment in his career,” said a source. “And they are prohibiting him from work.”
The rapper also spent five months in jail last year for violating the probation.
