Even while being held at the Robert N. Davoren Center, Sheff G is proud of his musical output since getting locked up on gun charges. He released his From The Can album in July via Winners Circle Ent. and RCA Records.
“The face of a real n-gga yu hurd,” he continued. “Free all my guys, they say if yu dont got no haters yu aint doing nun right , lol.. shout out to my whole label, my album went number 1, and we got more than over 16 plaques coming in , all behind bars shout out to us.”
Sheff G’s post came in response to 22Gz’s tweets earlier in August where he accused the “Godfather” of being extorted in jail.
“The ‘Godfather’ in jail getting extorted Good morning,” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “N-ggas supposed to be starting some shit.”
He added: “These rappers be waiting too long to live their raps and then get wrapped up and can’t hold it down.”
