Meek Mill is getting a second shot at justice — his 2008 gun conviction was just thrown out … and he’s being granted a new trial AND a new judge to re-fight the charge.

A panel of judges handed down their decision Wednesday in Pennsylvania Superior Court — saying Meek does in fact deserve a new trial, with a new jury … and most importantly a new judge who ISN’T Judge Genece Brinkley … who many believe had it out for him the first time around.

Meek celebrated the decision on social media, writing … “As of right now I’m not on probation and I am not a felon anymore,” adding a bunch of praying hands. He went on to say, “today was mega!!!”
