Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid can count himself along with Colin Kaepernick as a high-profile celebrity lending their time and energy to support Meek Mill. The young Sixers big man was joined by the team’s co-owner in a visit to where the incarcerated Maybach Music Group rapper is being held on probation violation charges.

TMZ reports:

Meek being a famous Philly native, has become friends with Embiid, who’s now joining the public outcry against Meek’s 2 to 4 year prison sentence for violating parole. Joel went to visit Meek last Friday, along with 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, and we’re told the visit went as good as it could.

As one Sixers source put it, “They really lifted Meek’s spirits.”

The outlet added to its account the meeting Kaep had with the Dream Chasers star in where the free agent quarterback and activist confirmed Meek is in good spirits.
