Detroit rapper Peezy has been released from prison following an 18-month sentence for racketeering conspiracy charges. He turned himself in during the summer of 2019, after catching the case in 2016.
The U.S. Attorney’s office indicted Peezy and 10 other members of the 6 Mile Chedda Grove gang. Two of the men, Edwin Mills and Carlo Wilson, were previously charged with murder in aid of racketeering for shootings that occurred at the Troester Market in Detroit on Dec. 1, 2015, resulting in two deaths and serious injuries to children. Two other murders were also included in the indictment.
“Just got out today already sent my dog a kite!” he wrote in his Instagram Story.
After adding that it felt “good to be back” on his Instagram Story, Peezy also posted a photo of himself and his girlfriend with a caption that read, “Gotta thank God that we up i dun seen more than enough!”
EMPIRE Founder and CEO Ghazi Shami was present for Peezy’s release. He posted a photo of the two in front of the sprinter van that escorted the formerly incarcerated rapper away from prison and wrote, “Back like you never left.”
