The Los Angeles trap artist has been feeding the streets with a constant flow of music while staying in a halfway house. On Thursday (March 16), 03 Greedo released his single “Bacc Like I Never Left,” which is the follow up to his aforementioned EP.
03 Greedo was released from a Texas prison in January where he was incarcerated since 2018 after being paroled some 15 years before the end of his original maximum sentence. The 32-year-old agreed to a plea deal for gun and drug charges in Texas. He was also reportedly facing a possible 300-year sentence for first-degree possession of a controlled substance and third-degree unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
Upon his release in January, 03 Greedo went on Instagram and explained to his loyal fans the terms of his freedom along with new music he plans to release.
Yes, I am free from prison but I am still not completely out,” he wrote. “For anyone confused I am in a halfway house for up to 6 months with a five-minute phone call a week. Where I am, I just want to see my daughter and record music. I wish I could have released a lot more music while I was away.
“So, I have this chip on my shoulder to just go record n drop at least 12 tapes before my major album and I honestly just don’t want to talk to alot of people yet. I got a lot I want to clear in my head first. So, if I’m not recording with you or laying with you.”
He added: “I’m not inna rush to talk after damn near 5 years. Just being honest! Salute to the GeeHive and all my supporters, I love you. Thank u for keeping me alive while I was incarcerated. Yours Truly, Cheeto.”
