Some people my call it courageous, while others may call it a stupid decision regarding G Dep's decision to turn himself in for a murder he claims to have committed in 1993.
The Special Delivery rapper is currently in jail as he awaits his trail to begin. He is planning to share his story by writing an autobiography about his life.
"The book is an autobiography,"It's one of those things where I'm not trying to explain or justify anything, it's just I'm trying to just give people my last option. Obviously I can't record. I don't know if people are wondering what's going on or even care, but this is something from an artistic point of view that will kind of close out what I was doing, for now. It might kinda answer some people's questions. I'm really just putting it out there as an example. You can make your own synopsis of what you think of it or what you're trying to do with yourself. Really, I'm just putting my story out there. And I'm trying to give a positive message at the same time."
The Harlem emcee explains that the transition to prison life has been a difficult one but a necessary one. He went on to suggest that prison will possibly help him grow as a person and change his ways.
"It's sacred to me what's going on with this thing here," he explained. "I'm day-to-day. I'm getting through day-to-day. Like anything, you feel down. But the ups and downs are - it's something that I needed to deal with, anyway. I was out in the street, and I wasn't really dealing with anything anyway. So, you know, the ups and downs, it's probably more beneficial that it goes this way anyway. I felt like I was going nowhere, fast. It was like Groundhog Day. I was going through the days. Somebody was waiting for me to do something. If I was gonna be an idiot and keep acting like I didn't understand what was going on, I was just gonna go further and further into the hole."
