In a statement from the Philly rapper himself, Mill says:
"I'd like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation, including Jay-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all the public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time. While the past 5 months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive. To the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office, I'm grateful for you commitment to justice - not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct. Although I'm blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don't have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues. In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career."
