Fresh out of prison, former Hot Boys member Turk is keeping himself busy by linking up with Memphis rapper Don Trip for some new tunes.

Video footage of recently released rapper Tab "Turk" Virgil is online showing the rapper in Memphis, TN during his first 72 hrs out of jail, and hitting the studio with Memphis rapper Don Trip. Turk was released from federal prison on October 12, 2012, and as a rep for Turk said to MemphisRap.com , the rapper was looking forward to hitting the studio soon. After serving nearly 9 years in prison, Turk says in the video that he "feels good" to come home, and after 8 yrs 8 months and 16 days, he's not sad and doesn't regret anything. Turk added that he's "free" and realizes that he could be 'locked up in his mind' still, by holding on to things like that, so he focusing on 'change' by 'changing his mind' and 'keeping it simple.'

Recently, Turk revealed his experience behind bars and possibly rejoining Cash Money.
"I'm always open to that. That's an option," Turk said referring to possibly signing back to Cash Money. "I've talked to Baby on several occasions, while I was incarcerated. I've talked to Lil Wayne. Wayne sent me money. I talked to B.G., but unfortunately he was locked up when I came out. I spoke to Juve, Mannie Fresh, everybody. It's all love. We're gonna sit down, chop it up as men and see what the future got for us. But right now, it's about that YNT Empire--Young N Thuggin. I'm pushing on my own right now because a man gotta stand on his own, but I'm looking forward to working with the whole industry. It's all love." (XXL Mag)
Shortly after getting released, Turk gave his first post-prison radio interview.
"I'm outta here, man," Turk said in an interview. "They took [the shackles] off, after eight years, eight months, sixteen days. It's a blessing, it's a miracle. First things first, man, getting my family straight. That goes without being said. I've been working on an autobiography, I finished it, I'm about to get a deal for that -- you've got to be productive [while locked up] or you're going to go crazy. I just stayed in contact with the industry, staying abreast with what was going on, trying to educate myself as much as I can so when I did get out, I wasn't too far behind. They in trouble once they hear this music." (Q 93)
