Ron Isley Released From Prison… Working With T.I., Rick Ross & Lauryn Hill On New Project [Video]


The King’s back.  Not that one.  One of the legendary Kings Of R&B, Ron “Mr. Biggs” Isley has been released from prison after serving three years for tax evasion.

Speaking with comedian Steve Harvey, Isley said,

“I’m overjoyed to be home and to be able to do everything that I want to do.  I’m in love with this record business and I’m in love with the fans and everything and I just couldn’t wait to get back to doing that.

I’m working on another album and this album is gonna mean so much.  I’ve been thinking about it for 3 years and wondering what it was gone be like and what it was gonna be like to sing certain songs and wanting to sing certain songs and now I got that chance to do that.”

Mr. Biggs also spoke on how the stint behind the wall changed his life and his families.

“It changed me a whole lot.  My wife was able to visit me like three days a week  and my son so that was  the great thing about it.  It was a little 3-hour drive for her to come to the camp where I was and I was  able to get through because of that.  That 3 days was everything to me man.

[But I’m home now] The family is fine.  My son is 3 years old and  he’s with me everyday.  Me and him boy, Little Ronald.”

Isley also used his time behind bars to speak with his fellow brothers on lockdown and performed for them as well.  Explaining some of the realities of being locked down, he states,

“…Talking to young people and crying with them  and people that  were gonna be in there some years and that part really hurts.  To see  your people and all kinds of people… older people [locked up].  And they looked up to  me and like my music and we talked about our career and it was just like that man.  I was working at the chapel and I did gospel shows every week and that kept me up…  I’m gone do a gospel album too.”

But before the gospel project, Ron Isley is working on a new album for Def Jam and promises that the new album will be something different.

“Some of the people that I’m working with on this album  will be Lauryn Hill, T.I., Rick Ross and   Burt Bacharach.   The group is back and they  were just waiting.  I would like to also thank L.A. Reid and the staff at Def Jam and Fox Entertainment and Elise Murray.

Just  all the people that were just waiting for me to come home and for putting this together and supporting everything I’m doing.  I feel like I’m 18 again and starting a new career.”

Mr. Biggs will also be making his return starting Mother’s Day Weekend when he’ll hit the stage in Atlantic City on May 8th and at The Paradise Theatre in the Bronx, NY on May 9th.
