In a contentious hearing, a Philadelphia judge on Friday ordered up-and-coming rapper Meek Mill to attend etiquette classes and provide his probation officer with details of all travel plans.

Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley told Meek Mill, also known as Robert Williams, he must complete the classes before Aug. 4 and notify his probation officer, Treas Underwood, any time he wants to travel outside Pennsylvania.

Those orders came at a probation-violation hearing for Williams, who is on probation for a 2008 gun and drug conviction. He was sentenced to 11 to 23 months in prison. Williams served eight months in jail and began five years of probation in fall 2009.

The judge said Williams needed etiquette classes to refine his use of social media and to help him explain the nature of his business to the court.
