Tru Life's attorney Alan Abramson has broken his silence on the rapper's recent incarceration and promised he would be found innocent of the murder charge.
According to Abramson, the rapper will be headed to Supreme Court in the near future.
"At this point [Tru Life's] still incarcerated and he's awaiting arraignment in Supreme Court," Abramson revealed after declining to answer how his client's spirits are behind bars. "This is just the initial court appearance so we can find out exactly what he's being charged with...He is an extraordinarily talented young artist and we believe that he will be vindicated of any charge they throw against him."
