Meek Mill has been granted a fresh new hearing in the Superior Court in an effort to overturn his 2008 conviction.

 Meek's lawyers will now have the opportunity to have the rapper's original conviction overturned without the involvement of Judge Genece Brinkley.

Arguments are scheduled for July 16 in Philadelphia. 

The news comes after the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office had recommended that Brinley be removed from Meek's case after accusing her of an anti-Meek bias. 

Brinkley sentenced Meek back in 2017 to two to four years in prison for minor probation violations. A court ordered him released in April of last year.

"We're looking forward to the oral argument before the Superior Court of Pennsylvania and to, hopefully, having Meek's conviction vacated," Jordan Siev, Mill's lawyer, said in a statement. "In light of the district attorney's recent filing, where he supports the granting of a new trial to Meek and the recusal of Judge Brinkley, we hope to have this injustice rectified once and for all."
