Meek Mill's probation stops him getting Will Smith movie role

Meek Mill is unable to star in Will Smith's upcoming movie '2 O'Clock Boys' because of his probabtion conditions.

The hip-hop artist was due to play Wheelie Wayne in the film - about the infamous West Baltimore illegal-dirt-bike riders - but missed out on the role, after he was ordered by Judge Genece Brinkley not to work or perform before his sentencing on February 6 for gun and drug charges.

The probation rule prevented Mill from travelling to Hollywood in November to meet with Will's production company, Overbrook Entertainment, because he had to take a urine test, just four days after a previous test.

And it's likely the 28-year-old performer will have to cancel a Las Vegas concert he had planned with his girlfriend, 'Anaconda' hitmaker Nicki Minaj.

If he mises the event - to be held on New Years Eve - Meek could lose out on his $140,000 paycheck.

What's more, it was hoped the concert would be the first step in getting the star a residency at Drai's Beach Club and bolster his career.

A source told Page Six: "He's at a defining moment in his career. And they are prohibiting him from work."
