After another failed attempt to appeal Meek Mill’s prison sentence, news leaked about the rapper’s job life behind bars. A representative at State Correctional Institution – Chester in Pennsylvania told TMZ Meek does all his jobs with a smile while earning just 19 cents per hour.

Apparently, Meek, who is serving two to four years for a probation violation on a nearly 10-year-old gun and drug case has several jobs. He cleans up the prison grounds and cell block and also washes dishes. His duties aren’t just limited to clean up, either — he also cooks and serves meals.

Outside of the kitchen, Meek has access to electrical and carpentry shops and is on the waitlist for therapy classes.

And while it may seem that the “Wins and Loses” performer is okay with prison life, his legal team has continued to battle to get him free. The Associated Press reported Thursday, Dec. 7 an appeals court denied another filing to release Meek. It is the second time that the request has failed.

Meeks’ attornies have also been repeatedly trying to get Judge Genece Brinkley removed from the case, as they claim she has it out for their client. The FBI has reportedly opened an investigation into Brinkley, but it does not confirm or deny the report. Brinkley hasn’t commented on the matter.
