Amazon says the six-part series will explore the rapper's"fight for exoneration while exposing flaws in the criminal justice system

According to the report, the series will also "put the spotlight on Meek's life, giving unprecedented access to the star's life, career, and criminal justice odyssey, while demonstrating the negative effects long tail probation is having on urban communities of colour".

"I'm grateful for this unique opportunity to share my story and I look forward to collaborating with Amazon Prime Video, Roc Nation and the Intellectual Property Corporation on this incredible series", Meek said.

Mill's legal troubles have been a major story within the sports world because of his connection to Philadelphia and the nature of the case.

Meek Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, was at the center of a months long controversy after he was sentenced to two to four years behind bars for probation violations back in November.

The show is now untitled, and it's expected to premiere at some point in 2019 exclusively on Amazon Prime video.

"Meek was around 19 when he was convicted on charges relating to drug and gun possession, and he served an eight-month sentence", the rapper wrote.

On April 24, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered the immediate release of the 30-year-old recording artist after he had already spent five months behind bars for violating probation stemming from a almost decade-old gun and drug conviction when Mill was 19. "And I don't regret anything that I ever been through to put me in this situation right now, because this situation right now is history.I'm nervous everyday being on probation.I always feel like my freedom could be taken". And me, I just pray. "I always believed that", he said. "And I'm not talking about them people, public officials, I'm talking about the men that's depending on me going through the same thing I'm going through".
