Freed hip-hop artist Meek Mill has been conducting a whirlwind tour around the NBA since a court granted his release from prison last month after several months in custody.
Mill’s first order of business was to attend his native Philadelphia 76ers Game 5 outing against the Miami Heat in the first round on the day of his release. He then joined New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft in Boston for Game 2 of the Celtics’ conference semifinals series against Philadelphia.
That’s not anywhere enough action for a rapper in Mill that’s seemingly living it up after being released from prison. Here, we see Mill hanging courtside prior to Game 3 between the Sixers and Celtics. Who is he hanging with? Well, none other than Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin and Dr. Oz. Heck, he also took time to chat up Questlove.

To say that Mill has been an inspiration around the Philadelphia sports community since being wrongfully imprisoned last November would be an understatement. The likes of Michael Bennett and Colin Kaepernick have shouted him out.
He’s increasingly becoming the face of a new civil rights movement in the City of Brotherly Love. And his stardom has never been greater.
