Cash Money Rapper Turk RELEASED From Prison; Plus BMF Members Bleu Davinci & Big Meech EXPOSED Jeezy

After serving almost nine years, Cash Money’s Hot Boys rapper Turk was released from the Forrest City, Arkansas Federal Prison earlier today Friday (October 12). Turk was an original member of New Orleans rap duo Hot Boys (Juvenile, B.G. and Lil Wayne) from 1996-2001. In 2004, Turk was allegedly involved in a shoot-out with members of the Memphis, Tennessee S.W.A.T. Team, as they raided an apartment complex. Over the years, Turk had proclaimed his innocence. According to AllHipHop, “Turk is currently working on new material to be released, in addition to a book about his life titled “The AutoThugography” of Turk. The rapper is also working on a screenplay about his life title “Reckless,” that will be released shortly.”

Things aren’t looking good for Jeezy this week! Yesterday Thursday (October 11), he released a WACK track called “Get Right” and today he was exposed by BMF members Bleu Davinci and Big Meech for his disloyalty. Jeezy never came to Meech’s defense when he needed financial assistant for lawyer fees. In the song, Jeezy was labeled as a snitch for turning someone into the Feds. Bleu also mentioned that Jeezy handed over his Porsche and Ferrari to the Feds in order to escape an indictment. Does Jeezy’s street credibility and character change in your eyes after he was exposed?

Was Cash Money/Hot Boys Recording Artist Turk Released From Prison?

Cash Money recording artist Turk, who was a member of the Hot Boys has been released from jail according to a post on AllHipHop.Com. Since 2005, Turk has been serving time in a Tennessee prison for attempted murder in the second degree. Turk allegedly shot a SWAT officer during a 2004 police raid on an apartment complex in Memphis, Tennessee. Over the years Turk always proclaimed his innocence. As of now, this is just a rumor and has no actual facts besides what was post on AHH and what the streets are talking. Below is a news story that I wrote on Turk for XXLMag.Com:

Name: Tab “Turk” Virgil, Jr.
Age: 29
Crime: Attempted murder in the second degree. Turk allegedly shot a SWAT officer during a 2004 police raid on an apartment complex in Memphis, Tennessee. As a result, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison and hit with a $200,000 fine.
Began Sentence: October 2005
Expected Release: 2015

THIS IS WHY HE’S HOT…

Cred: Best known for being a member of Cash Money Records’ Hot Boys (with Lil Wayne, Juvenile and B.G.), Turk rode a wave of underground success into the mainstream, as the New Orleans quartet exploded onto the scene in 1997. After three successful releases with the group, Turk dropped his 2001 solo debut Young & Thuggin’, which easily went gold.

Pre-Jail Buzz: Although his individual success never equaled that of his fellow Hot Boys, Turk continued to work on his music career. In fact, following his first disc, he dropped four albums in four years—including 2003’s Raw & Uncut, 2004’s Penitentiary Chances, 2005’s Still a Hot Boyand 2006’s Convicted Felons.

Release Therapy: Over the course of the past few years there have been various reports of a Hot Boys reunion, but that can’t truly happen without Turk. Upon his release, the New Orleans rapper could find himself realigned with his Cash Money brothers and give diehard Cash Money fans what they’ve been craving. Not to mention the built-in fan base Lil Wayne has amassed over the years as a Grammy-winning mega star. The block would be hot and so would Turk. Well, as soon as Wayne comes home.
