There’s trouble in paradise for the Philadelphia rapper.

More after the jump!

A judge appears likely to send rapper Meek Mill back behind bars early next year for a steady stream of probation violations, most involving his failure to keep the court aware of his erratic travels. According to the USA Today, Meek offered emotional testimony Thursday about his childhood in gritty North Philadelphia, while girlfriend Nicki Minaj and various managers pledged to keep him on track.

“How many times am I supposed to give him a second chance?” the judge asked, concluding that probation may no longer be “appropriate.” She ordered him not to work or perform before the Feb. 5 sentencing.
