G. Dep Confesses To A Murder

G. Dep’s conscience got the best of him, and on Wednesday, he confessed to killing John Henkel in Harlem 17 years ago. According to the NY Post, The Deputy walked into the 25th precinct and gave details of how he committed the crime.

Coleman, who grew up in the projects, told cops he was riding a bike when he rolled up on Henkel, 32, on Park Avenue and East 114th Street and announced a robbery. Coleman told Detective William Dunn that Henkel resisted and grabbed his .40-caliber gun. He allegedly admitted that he pulled away and shot his victim three times in the chest.

The former Bad Boy artist was charged with murder and is currently being held without bail.

UPDATE: Dep didn’t know the victim died.

“I was surprised— for some reason, I really didn’t think that he died,” the bald and bearded Coleman said in a jailhouse interview.

“When they told me, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m not going home after this.’ ”

Manhattan DA spokeswoman Erin Duggan said Coleman, 36, has now been charged with murder in the case. He faces life in prison

    Guess his conscience finally got to him, I heard this dude was a mad Dust Head back in the day, probably got sober and realised all the fucked up things he’d done

    I respect homie for accepting the consequences, takes a Real Stand up dude to walk in and confess like that, I dont think I could bring myself to face a life sentence like that, I’d probably just go to church more or summin, lol

  • sometimes…

    When it’s too difficult to survive on the outside, sometimes being behind bars is a better life.
    I have a few family members who believed that same lie…not confessing by to murders but by getting locked up on purpose…We all have the option to confess to God who is the only Law we should abide by…the courts is a lie…Good luck G.Dep

    @Villain…

    You’re a dumb ass. G-Dep is a man with a conscious and me knowing him personally… he was dying. He was living on park benches… high 24/7 on dust and heroin. lost 50 lbs. the only stop for him was death. he saved his life by turning himself in.

    Plus… because he turned himself in he’s not going to get life. And if he’s lawyer is good he can prove that (a) the intention was not to kill the man (b) he shows remorse… and it’s going to be knocked down to MANSLAUGHTER.

    furthermore… you probably think lil’ wayne is a gangsta because he did a skid bid on rikers.

    A great deal of cats that talk about murder and glorify murder have NEVER been around murder and death in their life. Or they just don’t understand it.

  • dj m-80

    I’m viewing a lot of speculations to dep’s motive of action. As a co- representive friend and producer of g.dep, I would like to ask the fans to keep him in your prayers. Also, there are many posts I’m viewing “poking fun” at his image. He was not sleeping on park benches, he has a home and family. G.dep is a humble man, and for those that don’t know him ; do your research. He’s been through hell. please keep him in your prayers!! Thanks

  • KIng JuggaNott

    You got that.

  • Jerz

    I guess he figured 3 meals a day, a warm place to lay, and no bills was better than trying to survive in the real world. Once he saw nobody was checking for his rap wise, and them bills got heavy, he probably went straight to the precinct and confessed.

  • Anonymous

    I’ve gotten away with a murder in my past and it has ALWAYS eaten at my conscience. But I don’t understand how he had the strength to do this. I don’t know if I’ll ever have it in my to turn myself in.

    Fuck that nigga dj nobody. You want me to pray for a murderer?? U fuckin kiddin me nigga? So bc he had one marginal hit I’m supposed to ignore murder? Hope they put his bitchass under the jail.

    The only prayer a nigga should be sayin is for the nigga that got “x’ed” out bc of this piece of shit.

    Hope they ” special deliver” his ass to rikers for life.

    And that’s real nigga.

  • Boston

    Actually I rather he turned himself in then do some stupid shit like commit suicide..Most of these artists are so dramatic they see suicide like its something to be glorified. Instead of asking yourself why he turned himself in think on the fact that we can all see what made him become what he was in the first place. Guilt isn’t a physical affliction its not like AIDS or Cancer. This disease eats at your mind, warps your daily life until its no life at all…

  • dj m-80

    I understand your frustration for the alleged charges, as I said before. The more recent man isn’t somebody that would be believed to do this. Although we are close, I seen no mental instabilities, nor distress signals. I nor does anyone know the facts of”why,” so for now, I stick by his side as a friend. FREE G.DEP!!!!!!!!

    God be with u G-Dep, you came clean. You took ownership of what you did, ready for the serious consequences and I believe with in my heart Allah will forgive you. I know you suffered and its time to heal. However, you took a man’s life and that man’s family’s peace of mind. It was a hellish experience for them because they never knew who did it, nor did they know how it really happened. I feel Allah is using you as an example for all those thinking about committing murder to refrain from the act and/or to confess. Please don’t think your life is in vain, you have touched more people than u know. God keep you safe and provide you and that man’s family closure.

  • Logical

    Beyond popular belief, murdering people isn’t what most people want to do, especially rappers. Confessing to this crime was the best thing he could do for himself and the family of the victim. Now keep him in prayer and confess your own sins because one day you will have to stand before God and answer and according to biblical scripture if you don’t do it in life you will have to pay for it in the afterlife.

    Believe it or not It Appointed to all mankind to die and after that the Judgement. We neither choose when, where and how it is just simply appointed. Is G-dep on the path to get his soul saved? Better question is what about you?

  • frankie

    to all g-dep so to speak use to be friends…look in the mirrow…opps!!! who do you see?

    when people have NOTHING to live for, some will go to prison instead of killing themself. he didn’t know the victim died??? my assumption: thought he was gonna get a few years, 3 hot & a cot, some cable and shits gravy. nah brother. we all know (well i assume) someone who has bodied someone at one point of time and them cats at all that fuckin’ sorry for what has happen so dont give me that conscience shit!! only god can forgive, not some broken down system that hate black folks from the start. bruh had to been on drugs. if i had shot someone, i would like to have known if i killed that person or not. i dont wanna get locked for some crime i’ve commited. and if you didn’t care if he died or not G-DEP, you have no conscience to begin with. god bless your family & love ones cause there obviously going some emotional shit but you gets no sympathy from me…..now if you went the LOON route, got all muslim n’ shit, then started that guilt shit, then maybe.. R.I.P G-DEP

  • mike

    The man went into his soul and seen things he needed to get right with himself & God. Instead you guys are actually ridiculing him for being a man? Thats crazy to me it easy to kick a man when he’s down, but how many know somebody, who know somebody that lost someone to a violent crime & the killer or killers where never brought to justice? There are alot of men & women that go through this annually often going to their graves without their loved ones killers being brought to justice. He’s a man for being willing to take responsibility for what he did. I got nothing but love for him and a new found respect for a real man.

    All you guys who posted negative comments about the situation are idiots, i can tell just by the you comment on it . Every human being is different and just because you think ” i would have taken this shit to my grave son”. Other humans may acually have a conscience. Did you ever think about that?
    And yes being on drugs does impair your judgement. Its been rumored that Mr Dep was homeless and its been rumored that Mr Dep was on drugs you mix those two ingredients together and you have a situation that is unexplainable to those who are not in that frame of mind, but if your situation was like this, YOU PROBABLY WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME THING IF YOU WERE MR DEP.
    Lets all try to be alittle more human and loving and concerned for this individual because he caused great suffering for the family and friends of the person he murdered and his family and friends.
    MY PRAYERS GOES OUT TO ALL PARTIES INVOLVED including MR DEP.

    i thought that was very good of him that he told someone at the preceint that he commited a crime some years back cause he actully has a concius within him and it was really eatting away at him badly…unlike alot of other people that do things like harming a child or going around rapping women…so they can feel powerful…and not think about how their family feel,s emotionally and violated…he wants to repent for his sins and have peace within himself….nough…said thou….

  • villain

    for all of you people who keep going on about how he did this out of his conciouss shut the fuck up man you know he was on that pipe

    A source with the NYPD told the paper that Dep—who has been struggling with drug problems over the last decade—was “high as a kite” when he first entered the precinct. Authorities tried to interview the ex-Diddy protégé but were unsuccessful, and he was able to leave.
