Music mogul Diddy is ready to make Loon feel like he's back around loved ones. The hip-hop mogul has publicly extended his hand to the former Bad Boy Records star after serving nearly 10 years behind bars.
Diddy Welcomes Loon Home
Heading into Saturday, Diddy snuck into a social media post to let the world know there’s no bad blood between him and the ex-Bad Boy. Instead, Puff Daddy encouraged Loon to reach out to him.
“God is great. Welcome home. Get at me king. Love.” -Diddy
During his run at Bad Boy Records, Loon put out some memorable anthems. Both Loon and Diddy played key roles in their unforgettable “I Need A Girl Part 1” single.
According to reports, Loon finally enjoyed freedom once again on Wednesday (July 29). The growing risk of getting infected with COVID-19 ultimately helped him get out of prison a little earlier than expected.
In June of 2020, Loon filed for a compassionate release with the help of activist/producer Weldon Angelos. The rapper cited his good behavior and some health concerns due to an outbreak of the coronavirus at FCI Coleman Low in Wildwood, Florida. “The Court finds that a sentence reduction would neither minimize the seriousness of defendant’s offense nor frustrate the promotion of respect for the law and the goals of punishment,” said Judge Terrence W. Boyle. “[Loon] has been in custody for over eight years. During that time, he has maintained good prison conduct.” (AHH)
Wait, There’s More
Despite fans’ need to hear Loon get back on the microphone and put out new music, he plans to take things slowly. The rap veteran has expressed an intent to put his family first before anything else.
“My mother recently had a heart attack and had to get surgery and get a loop recorder implantation. She is in her late 60s. I’ve already lost my grandfather since I’ve been incarcerated and do not wish to lose her before my release. She could use my assistance to help care for her. My Grandmother is 90, and she is also ailing,” Loon said. (AHH)
Before You Go
A felony drug conviction ultimately landed Loon behind bars. The actual sentence had Loon behind bars through at least 2027.
In July of 2013, Loon pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 1 kilogram or more of heroin and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. While in prison Loon converted to Islam, and changed his name to Amir Junaid Muhadith. He also reportedly gave up rap. (Hot 97)
