Minutes after the first playoff series win of his career, 76ers center Joel Embiid sought out Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill and embraced him.
Following a five-month campaign by his supporters to get him out, the state Supreme Court on Tuesday directed a Philadelphia judge who had jailed him to immediately issue an order releasing him on unsecured bail. Mill was courtside as the 76ers defeated the Heat to move on to the second round of the National Basketball Association playoffs, and was given the honor of ringing the ceremonial Liberty Bell prior to tipoff. ESPN reports he sat next to Kevin Hart and team co-owner Michael Rubin, who said earlier in the day that he was heading to the prison to pick Mill up. Watch his arrival below.
After his release, Williams said in a statement that the five months he spent in prison "have been a nightmare".
"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, ' said Mill, whose last album 'Wins and Losses" reached number three on the U.S. chart.
They said in a statement: "We are pleased with the Supreme Court's decision to grant Meek Mill bail and allow him to return home to his loved ones".

Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced Mill to two-to-four years in prison in November for violating probation on a 2008 gun and drug case. While he was greeted by several individuals, the rapper had to get a post-prison shower in before the big game.
Various factors have sparked controversy, including the fact that Brinkley has been accused of having a "personal vendetta" against the rapper, as well as the recent development that Mill's arresting officer - and the lone witness at his trial - was recently revealed to be on a "do not testify" list of potentially tainted cops kept by the District Attorney's office.
