POOH SHIESTY TO SERVE LENGTHY PROBATION SENTENCE ONCE HE’S RELEASED FROM PRISON
Written by torresanz on May 2, 2022
Pooh Shiesty caught a break in his Florida gun case earlier this month. After initially facing life for his role in an October 2020 robbery in Florida, he was ultimately sentenced to five years behind bars. However, once the “Back In Blood” rapper is released from prison, he’ll still be under intense scrutiny from the law due to the terms of his sentence.
According to TMZ, Pooh will have three years of supervised release after he completes his 63 months behind bars and face additional restrictions such as no contact with his co-defendants or gang members. Additionally, his probation officer has permission to search him and his property, and he must go through a treatment program for drugs and alcohol.
In January, he pleaded guilty to a single firearms conspiracy charge and prosecutors recommended he serve an eight-year sentence. After receiving the judge’s decree, he promptly thanked his fans and supporters, promising he’d be released and back in the real world before they knew it.
“THE BIGGEST.. I JUST WANNA THANK ALL MY LOVED ONES, SUPPORTERS, AND FANS FOR HOLDING ME DOWN DURING THESE HARD TIMES,” the 22-year-old wrote via his Twitter account on April 21. “I WISH I COULD BE COMING HOME TO YALL TODAY BUT THIS COULDVE BEEN WAYYYY WORSE. I WILL BE BACK SOONER THAN YALL THINK! BUT MEANTIME NEW MUSIC DROP NEXT WEEK! BLRRRD!!!”

Despite being behind bars since June 2021, Pooh has kept feeding fans new music, including the defiant “Gone MIA” in which he discusses his gun charge and the super deluxe edition of his recent Shiesty Season album titled Shiesty Season: Certified.
The 32-track album features some of Pooh’s biggest hits, including “Back In Blood” with Lil Durk, “Twerksun” and more. The album also includes guest appearances from Lil Uzi Vert, 42 Dugg, G Herbo and more.
