Meek Mill pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to possessing a firearm without a license and all other charges against him were dropped, ending his legal issues that have lasted over a decade.

“I know this has been a long road for you and hopefully this will be the end of it,” Judge Leon Tucker said at the conclusion of the case.

NBC 10 in Philadelphia state city prosecutors cited Meek’s criminal justice reform advocacy and work in the community as additional reasons to close the case.

“He was adult enough to admit he had a gun, so we feel this is appropriate,” prosecutors said.

Outside of the city’s Justice Juanita Kidd Stout Center for Criminal Justice, Meek emerged to the “Rocky” theme song and spoke to the gathered crowd about becoming free for the first time in 12 years.
