Did you forget these jailed rappers?
What’s grimy about prisons are that you’re essentially left for dead. If you manage to cling on to dear life, amid the vile and pungent living conditions, the mental strain of being barricaded from your freedom, and constant skirmishes, you deserve a medal. Sadly, the reality of the situation is that many rappers are stuck with these horrid conditions. Money, family, and friends can’t save a lot of these guys. Only prayer and a miracle can suffice and sadly, those things might not even be enough for these rappers living in jail.
This lost member of the Hot Boys watched his life go down the drain because he was arrested for gun possession and witnessing tampering in 2012. He’s currently serving 14 years in jail.

The brother of Master P has always been synonymous with trouble. In 2009, he was sentenced to a life after fatally killing a 16-year-old fan in 2002.
