Philadelphia, PA – Meek Mill has been met with bad news. On Monday (December 4), the Philly rapper's request to be released on bail was denied by Judge Genece Brinkley, according to CBS Local.
Meek's bail request was reportedly shut down by the controversial judge because she views him as a “danger' to the community and flight risk.
A early morning Twitter post from CBS' Joe Holden reads, 'Judge presiding over #MeekMill case DENIES his request for release on bail, saying he is a 'danger' to the community. Judge Genece Brinkley filed her order on Friday, courts just released it ten minutes ago.'

TMZ also reports Judge Brinkley suggested Meek may have used a Fast Flush detox capsule to pass his drug test.
The latest development in Meek's case follows accusations from Meek's legal team that Judge Brinkley asked Meek to remake a Boyz II Men song and tried to persuade the rapper to sign with a friend of hers.
Meek's attorneys have since asked Judge Brinkley to recuse herself from the case but to no avail.
Meek's legal woes began in 2009 with gun and drug charges and he's since racked up multiple probation violations over the past eight years.
