G-Dep Officially Indicted For Confessed Murder


Former Bad Boy rapper G-Dep may have finally gotten the peace he was looking for but at a hefty cost; 25 years to life.

A New York grand jury officially indicted him for murder Tuesday after he confessed to shooting a man three times in the chest when he was 18 and fleeing the scene.

Since his confession, Dep, real name Trevell Coleman, told The NYPost that he didn’t know his victim died when he decided to come clean on the cold case.

According to Dep, he just wanted a clean conscience.

I was surprised — for some reason, I really didn’t think that he died,” the bald and bearded Coleman said in a jailhouse interview. “When they told me, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m not going home after this.”

His lawyer, Michael Alperstein, claims Coleman was prompted to confess to the crime as part of a 12-step program to conquer his battle with drug addiction.

Dep remains behind bars pending his sentencing.
