Former Cash Money Records signee and Hot Boyz member Turk spent almost a decade in prison and was released in October of 2012.

His girlfriend, who was 21-years-old at the time of his initial incarceration, decided to stay by his side knowing that he would spend a significant amount of time behind bars. Recently sitting down with Vlad TV, Turk was asked about a similar situation–Papoose’s loyalty to girlfriend Remy Ma, who has been incarcerated since 2008.

“Salute to Papoose, he a blessing man,” Turk said when asked about Papoose and his situation. “He like a angel man because like these three/four niggas on this couch they ain’t about to stay down. Papoose stayed down for about six years. He’s doing what my wife doing and he a nigga so that’s rare. I salute that. I respect that. I don’t think he stupid for that because for what I know now I probably would but back then, me being a 22-year-old going to jail and she’d a been 21, nah.”

The New Orleans rapper also talked about his personal situation and how his girlfriend has been by his side since day one.

“It’s all about that loyalty. Niggas will tell you one thing and do something else,” he said. “She was a blessing in my life… She stood there day for day and went to the appeals with my attorney, she filed papers that I didn’t know how to file, she made a way. She found out how to do that shit on her own.”

Papoose announced in February that Rema Ma would be released from prison in July of this year.
