Petey Pablo Reported To Prison In January For Three-Year Sentence

Petey Pablo kept a low profile as he entered the pen last month.

Petey Pablo may have started his year off on a bad note, but he did so with little fanfare.

Pablo, who was arrested trying to smuggle a gun through an airport, began his three-year sentence on January 4 of this year by turning himself in to a medium security federal correction institution in West Virginia, reports TMZ.

The court recommended that the rapper receive "intensive substance abuse treatment, vocational training and educational opportunities" during his prison time.

Pablo's scheduled release date is July 17, 2014.

    I can't believe this dumb ass really tried to get a fucking gun on an airplane. He deserves to get a life sentence at least.

    Clown. When it comes to the likes of Petey Pablo, Chris Brown, Bobby Brown, R. Kelly, Michael Vick, T.I., the Game, Kwame Kilpatrick, the list goes on, why do well-compensated black men still seem to be prone to making recklessly ill-informed, self-destructive decisions? And then when the inevitable pushback and criticism comes, we have to circle the wagons and damn near beatify these people? Based on the comments of many of these men, before, during and after their respective crises, they are clearly obsessed with the concept of hordes of anonymous "player haters" having something against them on principle-- supposedly for being black men who are cocky, talented, and with money. Get over yourselves!! All these guys have the millions to pay high-powered lawyers to get them out of the trouble that ordinary black men with little or no affluence would not have access too. What infuriates me is that folks like Grant Hill or Hill Harper have managed to avoid any crazy scandals, and people look at them as "soft". People have NO IDEA who Dr. Neal Degrasse Tyson is. The Root has recently been including profiles of its Young Futurists of 2012. http://tinyurl.com/6rsrkca In this author's opinion, they will contribute more, pragmatically, to our culture than the celebrity "bad boys". Yes, some of the mainstream press coverage gets batty-- but hey-- on some core level, maybe they have a point. It speaks ill of the intellectual discernment and political capital of black folks when we start going to the wall defending literally every black celebrity who's been struck by megalomania. Look, I'm not stumping for Armstrong Williams' spot (or Stanley Crouch's, either). I see plenty of imbalance in contemporary American cultural narratives about African-American men. There are plenty of ongoing issues in which with the mainstream press and in pop-culture that deserve vigorous critique. But when it comes to the "ne'er-do-well distant cousins" of our community, I can defend their humanity, but I will not defend their pathology. At all.

    Its very good for him. He will learn that people that walk around with guns are dumb. Why does he need a gun?

  • RedX

    Sad to see him go in, but it might be the best place for him temporarily. The most important thing is the type people he surrounds himself with while being in, if he wants to make a change for the better.
