Bad rap

Well, good luck with that:

PHILADELPHIA -- Rapper Meek Mill has been ordered by a Common Pleas Court Judge to attend etiquette classes. The rapper, whose real name is Robert Williams, has been given until August 4 to complete the classes. Williams is currently on probation for a 2008 gun and drug conviction. At his probation hearing, the judge said that Williams needed etiquette classes "to refine his use of social media..."

Prosecutors claim that the rapper's statements on social media have inspired his supporters to threaten his probation officer.

Meek Mill is best known for his life affirming musical composition "Young & Gettin' It"

So many questions. What's the judge trying to do, destroy this man's career? "Life affirming" from a rapper? "Musical" composition? Getting what?
