The attorneys representing embattled hip hop star Meek Mill have said in court filings that there was a federal investigation into the conduct of Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley, who last sentenced the rapper to prison time for violating his probation.

Meek's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, says Brinkley's decision "continues her long pattern of unfair treatment" of Meek ... and vows they will appeal.

Early November, Meek was sentenced to two to four years in a Pennsylvania correctional facility, stemming from a probation violation.

Prosecutors and probation officers weren't asking for Brinkley to lock up Mill.

His imprisonment has sparked backlash in opinion pieces, rallies, billboards and bus ads.

The lawyers also allege that Brinkley called the rapper and his then-girlfriend Nicki Minaj "into her chambers without counsel present" and asked him to re-record a Boyz II Men track with a shout-out on it to the judge - a request which he declined.

The 30-year-old rapper, whose name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, plans to appeal the bail ruling and "wrongful" sentence at the heart of the controversy, his lawyer says.

Meanwhile, organizers from a coalition of social justice groups organizing on behalf of Meek Mill and criminal justice reform added fuel to the fire when they announced on Monday the discovery of some omissions in Brinkley's personal financial disclosure forms.

Sloan wants the court system to review Brinkley's holdings and disclosure forms for any other improprieties, she said.

"If you can do this to a successful artist like Meek Mill, you can do this to many around this country", Sharpton said at the time.
