42 Dugg is a free man.
42 Released From Prison
On Monday (Oct. 16), 42 Dugg walked out of United States Penitentiary Atlanta after serving six months behind bars,” XXL has confirmed via the Federal Bureau of Prisons. In the Detroit rapper’s first post-prison photo, he poses with label boss Yo Gotti. Both of the rappers hold up middle fingers in front of a fleet of cars.
Back in April, Dugg was sentenced to one year in prison for failure to report, in an ongoing saga that originated with the rapper catching guns charges back in 2020. In May, Dugg spoke out about the horrendous conditions he was facing while behind bars, with the rapper claiming that he was being required to heat up his food with water from the shower.
Ain’t no microwave, I can’t get no visits from my family, nothing,” he wrote in a since-deleted post. “I’m sure they gone do some more illegal s**t but what I ’pose to die in this b***h for probation violation?”
A few days later, Yo Gotti offered $2 million to any lawyer who could get the rapper out early.
“I got $2 million for any lawyer that can get Dugg out early,” Gotti wrote on his Instagram Story. “[That’s] what I want for my birthday #FreeDoggy.”
It looks like Gotti’s birthday wish came true.
