G-Dep Sentenced To 15 Years In Prison

G-Dep will have a new home for the next decade and a half. The former Bad Boy star was sentenced today for murdering John Henkel 19 years ago. During preceding, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said the following:

“The circumstance of your being before the court now suggests to me a maturity and decency that wouldn’t have been evident at the time. It was the right thing to do, even though it landed you in the position you find yourself in now.”

GQ‘s Editor In Chief was actually the foreman on the jury that convicted Dep. Read what he had to say here.

    @Truth, it clearly states the murder was 19 years ago. long before he was on Bad Boy. The demons inside of him just caught up with him. he couldn’t live with himself any longer knowing that he murdered someone. he took the charge like a man. didn’t bitch and moan about the judicial system

    ^yup

  • rahrahrah

    @YEEAHHH!! Jay-Z said something that sounded clever, but when you look at it you see how false it is.
    I don’t have to be perfect in order to judge a persons actions. If that were the case we couldn’t have a criminal justice system, or any kind. I’m not just talking about the corrupt American criminal justice system.
    No one has ever been perfect. Judgement of the actions of the members of your community have always been necessary.

    As for G-Dep. I always liked his style. Whether he came forward because he wanted to “do the right thing”, or “his conscience was punishing him”. It sounds from the account of the GQ article it sounds like both. He was troubled and he wanted to make right.

    I wish him the best.

    I swear some of you are the stupidest motherfuckers on the internet. Or at least neck-in-neck with the racist morons in ESPN and Yahoo comments.

    Respect to him for doing what most men could not. He knew he was sentencing himself back when he chose to confess out of the blue and waived his rights. And he still did it anyway. Do you know what kind of strength that takes? Only God can judge him now, so fuck y’all.

    Unfortunate day in Hip Hop. Commendable move on the part of Gdep to admit it knowing the implications of his actions. We hear all these rap songs about murdering and killing people but I guarantee you 99.9% of these rappers have never ACTUALLY killed someone. Do you know the mental toll it has on your body knowing that you took someone else’s life. It seems real easy in video games and movies but why do you think so many ex cons regrets their actions years down the line? (ie Tookie) Why do you think so many ex-marines suffer from post war mental instability and 33% commit suicide every year? Its something that very few can actually deal with. Sad part is even after Gdep is released he will still be haunted by his actions.
