David Drucker, the former Manhattan assistant district attorney, wrote a letter of support for G-Dep to be freed. Notably, the judge who presided over the case also submitted a letter of support.

As G-Dep sits in jail on murder charges, his former boss, Sean “Diddy” Combs, is still surprised by the whole thing. Diddy stopped by Hot 97 to give his opinion on Dep’s guilty verdict. “I was like, ‘Wow’,” he told Funkmaster Flex. “None of that was in G. Dep’s nature.
