In March, Meek, 30, was arrested in St. Louis and charged with misdemeanor assault for an altercation with two airport employees.

According to the judge, the rapper also violated probation when he was arrested for reckless driving in New York City.

Although both cases were dropped, the judge said the arrests alone were violations.

The court consequently jailed Meek for two to four years.

He also violated probation in 2015 but escaped that one after he was placed under house arrest.
