Pooh Shiesty has found out who his true friend are simply by going to prison — and he revealed that only Lil Baby, Lil Durk, and Don Trip have “held him down” while he was behind bars.
The “Back in Blood” rapper phoned into the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast on Sunday (October 29), where he revealed that he only heard from three rappers during his sentence.
“Rappers, for sure,” he began. “You got motherfuckers really sitting down and taking their time out to write, you know? Good men like Lil Baby, Durk — he ain’t missing’ a beat. Y’all familiar with Don Trip? He just wrote me a letter the other day. Just got a letter from him. There’s a lot of artists that keep my name alive in many different ways.”

Pooh Shiesty was sentenced to five years and three months in prison in April 2022 after pleading guilty to federal conspiracy charges in connection with a shooting that took place in South Florida in October 2020.
He was originally facing eight years for allegedly shooting 28-year-old Brandon Cooper, but took a plea deal for a reduced sentence.
Although he’s behind bars, and has been since 2021, the 23-year-old told his fans he was making some serious money prior to being convicted, and that prison hasn’t slowed down his income.
The 1017 Records rapper took to Instagram from his cell on September 11 and bragged about being able to order a pair of new Ferraris through a jail call.
“Just orderd 2 ferrari’s off a jail call im real rich, make sure you make ha cover my name up before you keep the bitch #TheWaitIsOver #TheKingIsBack! #FreeTheBiggest,” he wrote.
