    Rapper Meek Mill says he always thought 10 years of probation would bring him back to prison.

    Mill spoke to news anchor Lester Holt from a Pennsylvania prison in a phone interview that aired Thursday on "NBC Nightly News."

    The Philadelphia-born rapper, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, is fighting for release while appealing a two- to four-year sentence for a probation violation.

    A judge said his drug use, arrests and other issues while under supervision merited the jail time. Mill's lawyers accuse her of a "personal vendetta."
