After being locked up for over a year, Maybach Music Group's Fat Trel is a free man. On Friday (Sept. 22), the Washington, D.C. rapper made the announcement on Instagram, writing, "FINALLY FREE!"

In April 2016, after getting busted for using counterfeit money at a casino, Fat Trel was arrested for DWI, narcotics distribution, speeding and driving with a revoked license. The arrest came just a few weeks after the rapper was caught trying to exchange counterfeit $50 bills at a casino.

Trel maintained his innocence, claiming the counterfeit bills came from an ATM he used at a 7-11 in the D.C area. It's uncertain what's next for the rapper but his latest mixtape, SDMG 2, dropped in 2016.
