Former Bad Boy Rapper Loon Released From Prison After 8 Years
Bad Boy Rapper Loon Released Prison: The Bad Boy Rapper, Loon has been granted compassionate release from prison after serving eight years behind bars.
Loon is best known for his feature on Diddy’s hit song, ‘I Need A Girl’. He was also signed to Bad Boy Records. His stint in prison was due to possession of Heroin. The rapper was on a trip to Brussels, Belgium when he was arrested and sentenced to fourteen years in prison.
Prior to then, he was living in Egypt and had converted to Islam, changed his name to Amir Junaid Muhadith and had started putting his life together.
As luck would have it, many of the rapper’s friends had picked interest in his case. They lobbied President Donald Trump for his release. The US District Judge, Terrence Boyle eventually converted his sentence to time served, after establishing that the former rapper was not a threat to society.
Although it is unclear if President Trump had anything to do with Loon’s release, a document signed by Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Faith Evans, Benzino, and others was passed to the President for possible consideration.
