A spokesperson for the Bureau confirmed the release date to Complex. “We can confirm, Inmate Hernandez has a projected release date of August 2, 2020.” A member of Hernandez’s legal team, Dawn Florio, said the reason he’s getting released early is “because he’s the perfect model prisoner.”
Hernandez originally faced a 47 years to life sentence for a number of crimes including firearm charges, racketeering conspiracy, and narcotics trafficking. In February 2019, the rapper pled guilty and became a cooperating witness, testifying against fellow Nine Trey Gangsta Blood members.
In December 2019, Hernandez received a sentence of 24 months as a reward for his cooperation.
