03 Greedo shared the news Sunday that he’s out of prison after serving nearly five years behind bars.
“Yes, I am free from prison but I am still not completely out,” the rapper wrote in a lengthy Instagram note. “For anyone confused I am in a halfway house for up to 6 months with a five minute phone call a week. Where I am I just want to see my daughter and record music. I wish I could have released alot more music while I was away.”

He then signed off by thanking his loyal fans and support system for “keeping me alive while I was incarcerated.”

While serving his sentence, Greedo still managed to release a steady stream of music, including 2019’s Still Summer in the Projects, 2019’s Netflix & Deal with Kenny Beats, 2020’s Load It Up Vol. 01 with Ron-Ron The Producer and “Substance (We Woke Up),” his 2021 collab with Wiz Khalifa.
