New Orleans rapper Turk, once a member of Cash Money Recordsâ€™ biggest group the Hot Boys, will finally be released from prison.
Turk, who served almost nine years after being convicted for weapons violations, will finally be released from the Forrest City, Arkansas federal prison, on October 12, 2012.
Turk, born Tab Vigil Jr., was part of The Hot Boys from 1996-2001.
As a member of the group, Turk was featured on #1 albums like Get It How You Live!, Guerrilla Warfare and released a solo album titled Young & Thugginâ€™.
But Turkâ€™s career took a tragic turn for the worst, in 2004, during an incident in Memphis, Tennessee.
S.W.A.T. team members raided an apartment Turk frequented and a gunfight ensued, leaving two officers injured.
At the time of the trial, it was hotly contested as to whether or not Turk, who was hiding in a closet, was the shooter, or if the officer who was hit was struck by friendly fire.
In October of 2005, Turk was convicted on federal weapons and drug possession charges.
Now that his prison sentence is behind him, the rapper is planning a new book titled â€œThe AutoThugoGraphy of Turk.â€
During his nine years incarcerated, Turk also completed a screenplay about his life titled â€œReckless,â€ that he hopes to see make it to the big screen.
