Former Cash Money rapper and Hot Boys member Turk has finally been given a release date from prison.
According to AllHipHop, Turk will be released from an Arkansas prison on October 12. The New Orleans native has been locked up on federal gun possession charges since 2005, stemming from a 2004 shootout with Memphis police officers that resulted in two officers being injured.
Turk (born Tab Vigil Jr.) says he has not been treated fairly in prison.
“The reason why I’m still incarcerated, it has a lot to do with my jail credit,” he said. “The powers that be refuse to give me what is due to me. I have been trying to resolve this problem for the last 30 months but still I remain incarcerated.”
Turk has not said whether or not he plans to rejoin Cash Money once he’s released. There’s also no word of whether or not the long-delayed, much-hyped Hot Boys reunion will ever take place once Turk is out.
