Per Press Release via Angela Byrd:
On Thursday, March 30, 2017, Maryland Rapper Big Flock was sentenced to 45 months in federal prison for possession of narcotics and firearms . A break from the 20 years he was originally facing, Big Flock's original arrest stemmed from a music video that was released (not of his own), which lead to his house being search where they found drugs and guns.
Flock stood before the court reading a heartbreaking letter apologizing for wasting every one's time , accepting responsibility and apologizing to his daughter the person he loves the most. The US Attorney General suggested that all young drug dealers read Flock's "Letter to The Youth" and said he had read a lot of letters but Flock's was different. However, he could not give Flock special treatment because he had such a big platform--including that the government was even aware of all the RTs and Likes that Flock has received on the letter and wanted to use this as a example to young folks.
Big Flock is in very good spirits and will continue to release music and videos, including his recent collaboration track "They Won't Believe You" with upcoming female emcee Rico Nasty. Nasty is most notable for her record "Hey Arnold" featuring Lil' Yachty and was recently featured on The Fate of the Furious soundtrack, again with Yachty. "They" is produced by MK Beatz and will be featured on Big Flock's upcoming project Sonny 2.
