So this is now the second rapper to be release from prison in March... I have never heard of before.

The game has changed alright, but obviously nobody bothered noticing. Clearly a sign that rap isn't what it used to be.

It's going to take a miracle to revive his career. He fell off the grid years before he went to prison. It's not like the sentence ruined his career.
