Meek Mill's career is reportedly taking a huge blow because of his legal troubles. The rapper was found guilty of violating his probation and told he's not allowed to work or perform until his February sentencing. As a result, Mill has been forced to cancel a number of high-paying gigs he had already booked.
According to TMZ, the 28-year-old rapper is losing hundreds of thousands of dollars due to his canceled gigs. Mill was supposedly set to travel to Los Angeles to record some music, but will not be able to go.
Sources told the site the booked studio is costing the rapper $15,000 a week. The "All Eyes on You" rapper and his girlfriend Nicki Minaj were also supposed to perform at a New Year's Eve show in Las Vegas, but Mill won't be able to make it.
According to a report by Page Six, the Vegas show was supposed to lead to a possible Vegas residency for Mill, but that's now also in jeopardy. "He’s at a defining moment in his career and they are prohibiting him from work," a source told the outlet.
Page Six also claimed Mill's legal woes have cost him a role in the Will Smith-produced film "12 O'Clock Boys." The movie is about an illegal dirt-bike group in West Baltimore. Mill, who's a fan of riding dirt bikes, was supposed to play Wheelie Wayne.
Mill’s friend Chris Brown was upset the rapper was found guilty of violating his probation and bashed the American legal system in a Twitter rant.
"The system is set on bulls---. The DAs and JUDGES get just as high as the next man and f--- people's lives up," he wrote Dec. 17. "I ain't on probation so I can tell y'all kiss my a--!"
Mill is scheduled to return to court Feb. 5 for his sentencing.
