‘Believe It’: Judge Orders Rapper To Take Etiquette Classes

A Philadelphia judge has delivered an unconventional sentence to rapper Meek Mill. On Friday, Judge Genece E. Brinkley ordered the local hip hop star to attend etiquette classes by August 4th and provide his probation officer with details of all travel plans.

Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams found himself in court after a probation violation stemming from a 2008 gun and drug conviction that put him in jail for eight months. The etiquette classes are apparently meant to aid Mill’s language and behavior on Twitter, where his more than 2 million followers have been allegedly harassing the rapper’s probation officer. The judge recommended that recommended that Philadelphia radio host Dyana Williams conduct the classes because of her connection to the music industy, calling them “more important than any concerts he might have.”
