Meek Mill has had his share of run-ins with the law.

After nearly three years since his last sentence, the Philadelphia rapper is returning to prison for violating his probation terms on a 2009 drug and weapons case, according to TMZ. This Monday (Nov. 6), a judge has sentenced Meek to a 2-4 years in prison.

The DC4 rapper, born Robert Williams, discovered his fate during a court appearance. His latest sentence follows an arrest for fighting at an airport in March and for reckless driving in August. Even though both of the cases were eventually dropped, the judge considered them to still be violations of Mill’s probation.

This isn’t the first time Meek has violated probation. In 2014, he was sentenced to 3-6 months in jail for the exact same reason. “Sir, I didn’t want to do this but you made me do this,” said Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley. “After all the years I tried to get you on the right track.”

Approximately two years ago, he also violated parole due to unapproved travel and urine test failure.
