Sixers center Joel Embiid reportedly showed Philly love to the rapper Meek Mill by paying him a visit in prison.

Embiid is said to have gone along with Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin.

Meek was put in jail, and faces a controversial 2-to-4 year sentence for violating terms of his parole.

Per TMZ:

Meek being a famous Philly native, has become friends with Embiid, who’s now joining the public outcry against Meek’s 2 to 4 year prison sentence for violating parole.

 

Joel went to visit Meek last Friday, along with 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, and we’re told the visit went as good as it could.

 

As one Sixers source put it, “They really lifted Meek’s spirits.”
