NEWS: Meek Mill (@MeekMill) [Maybach Music] To Donate $10,000 To Strawberry Mansion High School?

A judge recently told Meek Mill he wouldn't be able to tour for 30 days, so the North Philly rapper has found other things to do with his time.

Mill, born Robert Williams, will donate $10,000 and basketball shoes to his alma mater, Strawberry Mansion High School, tomorrow. The shoe donation is in connection with Puma, who signed Mill to endorse their shoes back in August.

Mill originally posted on his Instragram that the event had been cancelled because of the content of his lyrics, but a representative from the Philadelphia School District said the donation was rescheduled.

Other than being grounded in Philly because he's on probation after a 2008 conviction, Mill has had quite the year: His debut album, "Dreams and Nightmares," peaked at Number 2 on the Billboard 200.

We have calls in to both Strawberry Mansion High School and Meek Mill. We'll update with their comments as soon as we get them.

Strawberry Mansion is one of eight high schools proposed for closure as part of Superintendent William Hite's plans to consolidate the Philadelphia School District. This morning, Mill tweeted his displeasure about the plan that could shutter 37 schools in total, voicing concerns about the violence that could erupt from placing kids from different neighborhoods in the same school.
