G. Dep Sentenced To 15 Years In Prison For 1993 Murder

G. Dep has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for a murder he committed almost two decades ago.

G. Dep has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for a murder that he allegedly committed in 1993.

According to the NY Post, the former Bad Boy rapper was given the lengthy sentence for the crime, which took place nearly two decades ago. "The circumstance of your being before the court now suggests to me a maturity and decency that wouldn't have been evident at the time," said Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus. "It was the right thing to do, even though it landed you in the position you find yourself in now."

G. Dep, whose real name is Trevell Coleman, walked into a Harlem precinct two years ago and admitted to shooting a man that authorities later matched to the murder of John Henkel. In the wake of the sentencing, Dep's lawyer, Anthony Ricco, says that he admitted to the crime to clear his conscience and hopes he never regrets his actions.

"My hope is that Trevell never wavers from his decision," he said. "Fifteen years is a long time. Fifteen years in the penitentiary for putting yourself there is an even longer time."

    I never seen so many dudes on a hip hop website and gossip like some str8 bitches. Ya'll no what the man been through in life. Just know that his conscience is clear and he has his spirituality with him now. May God be with G Dep during his bid, and I will strongly keep him and his family in my prayers. God is with you my brother.

    MY 2 CENTS...IN MY OPIONION CAUSE NOBODY KNOWS UNLESS YOU KNOW THIS GUY PERSONALLY AND PROBABLY NOT EVEN THEN BUT I FEEL LIKE FOR HIM,TIMES GOT REALLY HARD COMPARED TO HIS BAD BOY DAYS AND FOR CERTAIN RAPPERS LIKE HIM WHO PROBABLY DEALT WITH A HALF MILLION OR A COUPLE MILLION AT MOST,BLEW IT ALL CUZ HE THOUGHT HIS PRIME WAS GONNA LAST FOREVER. IF YOU HAVE SOME TALENT AND YOU MAKE IT IN THE GAME,YOU GOT TO CONSISTANTLY PUT OUT GOOD SONGS AND ALBUMS AND KEEP INVESTING AND IF YOU DONT LIKE IF YOU DONT WORK OFTEN OR DROP SINGLES LIKE YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO AND SPEND MORE THAN YOU MAKE THEN YOU WILL END UP STRUGGLING LIKE G DEP AND YOUNG BUCK. SO I THINK THATS THE CASE...HE HAD DOUGH WHEN HE WAS WITH DIDDY AND HAD A FEW GOOD SONGS BUT I THINK HE GOT FULL AND STARTED SLIPPING SO DIDDY DROPPED HIM THEN HE NEVER RECOVERED AND HAD TO GET A 9 TO 5. GOING FROM A MILLIONAIRE WITH FAME AND SUCCESS TO LOOSING IT ALL AND WORKING A 9 TO 5 HAS TO BE STRESSFUL ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE KIDS TO FEED. I SAY THIS TO SAY I FEEL HE HAD TO CLEAR HIS CONSCIENCE CAUSE HE FELT GOD WAS PUNISHING HIM FOR WHAT HAPPEND BEFORE HIS CAREER TOOK OFF. HE KILLED A HUMAN,GOT RICH AND FAMOUS,LIVED THE GOOD LIFE THEN ONCE EVERYTHING GOT GOOD GOD TOOK IT ALL AWAY SO HE FELT LIKE HE HAD TO CLEAR HIS CONSCIENCE SO HE CAN DO HIS 15 THEN HOPEFULLY LIVE A BETTER LIFE THAN BEFORE HE TURNED HIMSELF IN.

  • Chris Wallace

    WOW- People forget how nice Dep was. 'Everyday' is a CLASSIC record. He stole the show on all his features in the early 00s'. He had a very Harlem-esque, sharp flow and Puff knew this. Dep confessed because he has a serious drug problem. Kind of sad the way people forget. Stop downloading Rick Ross mix tapes and get with the real. He made it in New York at a really hard, competitive time in Rap.

    he shouldn't go to prison, he should flee the country

  • HRH

    You can only hope that he did this for himself, and wanted to be inside, either needing the prison environment or just a roof over his head, cause nobody's that dumb and didn't expect this. He'll be praising Allah in a few months lol

  • I DON'T LIKE PRISIONERS

    I don't hope he get outta jail and start his life again, I hope he gets gang raped and lynched in the jail's bathroom

    Give this man a dunce cap for real. If he wanted to make peace with God & do right he could have dedicated his life to helping people in need, Kids who were on the same path he was on for example. That would have made a bigger diffrence for the world then another black mad sitting in prison, IMO The Justice System gets away with fucking people over constantly, I dont see how much better he can feel submitting himself to an equally unjust prison system. Helping people >>>> Rotting away in a cell

    • Anonymous

      im 50/50 with your opinion. one one hand he did the right thing, and on the other hand i see your point and he could have been just as effective with your suggestion. regardless,, i hope he finds peace and repents

    15 years for murdering someone. I wish the death penalty was within 2 weeks of an absolute conviction to eliminate the murderers, rapists, and filth from the gene pool.

  • blitzlegga

    niggaz should kick his ass in prison for being stupid. you commit a crime, you get away with it, you get high as fuck and you go and tell on yourself mad years later, then you sober up and try to appeal your confession, and finally you get 15yrs for something that you could have gotten 0yrs if you would have kept your fucking mouth shut. let this be a lesson to you all, if you do evil, LET THAT SHIT RIDE!! fuck your conscious. fuck trying to be right with "god". fuck doing the "right thing". in the end, life is all about what you can get away with.....

  • Ummmmmmm

    I would have just gotten right with GOD and kept my freedom. Forget these humans. He felt bad for robbing a dude. He didn't even know that he died.

      So in other words, just get away with it? I'ma go on a lil killing spree and then make my peace with "God" and fuck these humans.

  • crazy high

    thank fuck they dont got that pcp stuff where i live half the ppl round here would be locked up for snitching on themselves. Why do ppl even fuck wit that stuff on utube the videos of ppl on it all they seem to do is get naked and walk into traffic screaming

  • Hypestyle

    "15 years for a crime he allegedly committed." Um, no he confessed, he was convicted, it's on record, so allegedly doesn't apply here. Some people may want to put Dep in a "superhero" role for confessing, but it should have been done long ago. Let it be a lesson to the thug wannabes out there, living the trife life, and treating it like it's just fodder for your rap lyrics.. Uh-uh. This is real life, and it's going to catch up to you in one form or another.

  • Mr Flamboyant

    15 years. Eh. Could have been worse. Much worse. Glad that he's getting his life together and that he came to grips with something weighing heavily on his mind. Hopefully he doesn't get deterred and continues improvement and betterment of self.

    You really have some ignorant ass people who comment on this website,simple minded mothafuckas who would never understand what it means to be a decent human being and to have conscience just a bunch of wild animal talk about who should get this or he stupid for that when in real life I respect dude for real cause if that was your fam you would happy he did it( confess ) and happy to know a Nigga is doin time behind it but mothafuckas don't think man.keep ya head up brother,and god bless the victim and his fam.

    • wolfman

      Well said. Would I have done the same? Probably not. But, do I support the man's decision to face his conscious the way he chose? Absolutely. It would seem both sides can find some peace now.

  • jesterxxl

    Give every bastard PCP see what they confess to!

  • DaPhatSpotRusher

    Surprised they gave him 15 years. He did the right thing and turned himself in which is an unbelievably honorable thing to do. Although I'm sure he regretted doing it as soon as the PCP buzz wore off

  • sam uk

    I can't say i've followed this guy's music, but have been catching these news storues regarding his confession. Seems like his conscience got the better of him, deserves some respect for doing the right thing. The mind of a man is a delicate thing. Comment below... pathetic, even by trolling standards.

  • Eu Vou Largar Minha Casa E Vou Morar No Cabare

    15!!!??? Really!!!??? Give this nigga life, no, better yet, hang him from a tree and set him on fire.

    at least he would get his conscious free
