At the top of the year, the 36-year-old was interview by the New York Daily News, where he spoke on the relationships he's made in the pen. “Outside, you don't meet guys like this every day. This place is amazing,” he explained. “It's funny. We are from totally different walks of life. But when you're here, you're here.”
Since being behind bars, the Queens native dropped an album Pain Is Love 2, and penned a letter to fans.
