State Property's Peedi Crakk was reportedly released from prison earlier this month and has begun work on new music.
According to reports, Peedi was freed from a year jail stint April 1st.
Former State Property rapper Peedi Crakk has finally returned home after spending more than a year in prison. Though his incarceration was largely kept private, the rapper became noticeably quiet after announcing that he was signing with indie upstart Amalgam Digital, for whom he was recording his long-awaited debut, 'A Night in the Life.' According to his manager Breigh, Peedi was released from prison on April 1, and is currently hard at work at Philadelphia's Bat Cave Studios. Because he served a full-sentence, Peedi does not have to worry about parole this time around, serving out a simple probation. (The Boom Box)
A Twitter account under his name also welcomed the rapper's return.
"ALL PEEDI CRAKK INQUIRIES: Please contact Breigh via e-mail at PeediCrakk@PeediCrakk.info WELCOME HOME, PEEDI CRAKK!!! They have finally unleashed the Beast!!! Stay tuned..... @ThePlclark9505 Peedi is finally home! He just got out! The wait is over! Stay tuned.........." (Peedi Crakk's Twitter)
Last fall, Peedi's former labelmate Jay-Z said he cut ties with him.
"I speak to [Young] Chris often," Jay revealed in an interview. "Freeway as well. I spoke to Beans when his grandma passed, we had a conversation. I don't speak to Peedi at all 'cause he's a psycho -- no, he's a psycho. That's what I truly believe. Not trying to be funny or anything." (Hot 97)
The rapper also talked with SOHH about his issues with Hov around 2008.
"He's a real disrespectful dude," Peedi said in an interview last year. "I been watching hi for a long time, I see the way he does business. I think he was intimidated by me. I have real leadership qualities and I don't like to be told what to do -- he put [Beans and Freeway's] albums out with no promotion, no nothing. He had no interest. I'm happy he didn't put my sh*t out." (SOHH)
