The rapper who was first signed to Roc La Familla by Jay Z watched his career come to a screeching halt when he was arrested for stabbing two men in the lobby of a Manhattan building in 2009. He was slapped with first degree manslaughter and sentenced to 8 years in prison. His parole hearing was last month.


In 2010, the former Bad Boy signee took himself in to a local police station and admitted to murdering a man back in 1993. This resulted in Dep being locked up in 2011. He’s currently undergoing a 15-year sentence.
