THE WORD | Meek Mill's criminal case is officially closed.

After a years-long fight, a Philly judge this am let Mill plead guilty to one gun charge with no further penalty. The Philly DA office dropped all other charges against him, the final step in overturning his 2008 conviction.

Prosecutors and Meek Mill have negotiated a deal to drop the charges against him in a 2007 case that’s kept him under court supervision for more than a decade. Mill pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge and prosecutors dropped all other charges against him.

A judge accepted Mill’s guilty plea on Tuesday morning.

“I know this has been a long road for you and hopefully this will be the end of it,” Judge Leon Tucker told the rapper.

On July 24, just hours before the Pennsylvania Superior Court threw out his conviction, Mill and Jay-Z announced they were launching a new label called Dream Chasers Records. His growing business empire also includes an ownership stake in the hat company Lids.
