Meek Mill Cleared by Judge to Make New Music If the Price is Right


Meek Mill seemed to be flirting with disaster when he released a new diss track -- while under house arrest -- but we've learned it was court approved ... with one small caveat his fans are gonna love. 

Sources connected to the case tell us Meek got an order of clarification 2 weeks after his sentencing. The judge had said he could not record ANY music during his 90 days of house arrest, but then spelled it out in more detail.

We're told the rule is Meek can release music in order to "protect his brand," but it has to be on FREE platforms like SoundCloud and YouTube.

This explains why he dropped that remix of Drake's "Summer Sixteen" a few days ago. It was totally legal ... just ill-advised.
