Rowdy Rebel Released From Prison

Brooklyn rapper Rowdy Rebel was released from New York state prison on Tuesday, according to the official website listing inmate information. The rapper, whose legal name is Chad Marshall, 29, will be on parole until 2025, meaning he has to stay out of serious trouble to avoid another lockup.

Marshall, along with famed “Hot Nigga” rapper Bobby Shmurda and Nicholas “Flea Montana” McCoy, pleaded guilty in September 2016 to conspiracy in the fourth degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree. Marshall was sentenced in November of that year to six-to-seven years in prison; he served about four years (not including any time served before going upstate).

Prosecutors said that the three were part of an East Flatbush gang called GS9. As part of this conspiracy, GS9 members “were engaged in a protracted turf battle with multiple rivals,” including Brooklyn’s Most Wanted (BMW), from January 2013 to October 2014. Twenty-one people were charged in the indictment, and Marshall ultimately copped to “possessing and conspiring to possess two guns.”
