The Wolf of Grape Street rapper agreed to a plea deal.
Watts, CA rapper 03 Greedo was finally beginning to transcend the pockets of his impoverished corner of LA to enjoy commercial success. His mixtape The Wolf of Grape Street received critical and commercial praise, with the selectively complimentary Pitchfork giving it an 8/10 rating. Despite these accolades, 03 Greedo’s life just took an unfortunate turn, as he was just sentenced to 20-years in prison.
The sentencing comes after Greedo agreed to a plea deal for gun and drug charges in Texas. While 20-years is by no means a walk in the park, had he not plead he could have been facing a 300-year sentence for first-degree possession of a controlled substance and third-degree for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
Taking to Instagram to clarify when he was going away, Greedo cleared the air by saying that he isn’t going away until the summertime. Explaining why his jail stint isn’t imminent, Greedo said, “You think I’ma just go to jail, take the deal and then just say, ‘Take me now!’ Nah, nigga, gimme some extra time, nigga … Lemme go on tour. Lemme get this money right for my kids.”
