After missing a critical court date on June 27th, due to a missed flight, Watts, California-based hip-hop artist, 03 Greedo, was forced to turn himself into authorities the following day on June 28th deriving from 2016 gun and drug trafficking charges. Unfortunately, with his career just now beginning to bud, he will most likely spend the remainder of his relevancy behind bars as he was sentenced to 20 years in prison at a felony court in Amarillo, Texas.
In June of 2016, Greedo was charged and pled guilty to felony possession of over 400 grams of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. Does this constitute the fact that the LA native will be locked up behind bars for two decades? This is debatable due to the known statistics of minorities receiving harsher sentences for drug-related charges but, Greedo’s management has revealed that he will continue to release music and expressive art throughout his incarceration.
But prior to turning himself in and facing his fate, 03 Greedo teamed up with Los Angeles-based streetwear company, UNDEFEATED, for a secret and impromptu lookbook photoshoot and intimate performance as an ode to his fans and supporters.
The concise photoshoot consists of several natural and off-guard photos of the ‘Never Bend’ rapper wearing conventional UNDEFEATED crewnecks, graphic-tees, pastel-colored polos, and hoodies. All of which are currently available at the online UNDEFEATED store, here.
Luckily, the Grape Street representative has left his die-hard followers with his first official studio album entitled, God Level, as a parting gift prior to being physically imprisoned. With Greedo facing unfortunate circumstances, RapFest wishes him the best on his journey and we hope his story and experiences provide others with the necessary guidance to avoid the perpetual cycle of the industrial prison complex.
Peace to 03 Greedo, his family, and loved ones.
