Kraft was there with his friend, entrepreneur Michael Rubin, to advocate for the release of Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams. "Every time I see him, I just come away more impressed".
In November, Mill, a Philadelphia native, began serving a two-to-four-year sentence for violating the terms of his probation. "I know how I'd feel if I were in the situation he is".
"He's an awesome young man", Kraft said outside the State Correctional Institution-Chester, via NBC10 Philadelphia.
Following their visit, Kraft spoke to reporters outside of the facility, where he praised Meek's character while also calling for criminal justice reform. For his kind of case to be in a situation like this, it's really bad.
Last month, the Philly rapper's legal team filed a motion to have Judge Genece Brinkley removed from his case, stating she "exceeded the judicial role by sometimes essentially acting as a prosecutor and, at other times, taking an unusual interest in, and trying to inject herself into, [Meek Mill's] personal and professional life".
And according to the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office, Officer Reginald Graham-who played a crucial role in Meek's 2007 arrest for gun and drug charges-is one of 29 current and former cops the D.A. has placed on a "do not call" list.
"I believe he will get out soon and that the right thing will happen", said the Sixers co-owner.
Following the meeting at the prison, Kraft pushed for change. "The conversation was very positive and Meek's spirits are still high", a source told TMZ Sports last week of the visit from Simmons and Fultz.
