Fabolous Associate Freck Billionaire Released From Jail
Rapper Freck Billionaire is officially a free man.
According to AllHipHop, a source confirms that the Philadelphia native was released from his latest stint behind bars. The rapper has been arrested 19 times between the ages of 18 to 22, and has been candid about his past as a cocaine dealer. The most recent stint in the slammer came after Billionaire was arrested in 2008 for selling crack to an undercover police officer in New Jersey.
“Freck Billionaire is a free man!!! #TheFamily #WelcomeHomeBro,” tweeted Fabolous Wednesday (April 6) afternoon.
A post on his website describes his longest incarceration — lasting 19-months — as “life altering,” crediting the sentence as the inspiration behind his name. While locked up, a female friend sent him copies of the global luxury magazine ‘The Robb Report, which inspired him to adopt the moniker Freck the Billionaire.
The rapper has collaborated with the likes of Fabolous, Foxy Brown and Omarion. He was once signed with Floyd Mayweather’s Philthy Rich label imprint in 2008, and with Arista Records, both of which have since dissolved.
