Baby Blue of Pretty Ricky has a lot to celebrate.
The founding member has been released from his 20-month prison sentence early. The singer was sentenced last February after pleading guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud. He admitted to doing a $24 million COVID-19 scam in 2020. In 2021 he was arrested.
Take a look at him coming out of Orlando’s Coleman Prison:
Hip Hop DX reports Blue said he’s changing his name and writing a book. He was greeted by his fellow group members, Spectacular and Pleasure P. In a statement, he said,
“I met a lot of REAL n-ggas in the feds. A lot of good street n-ggas doing time in this fucked up system just for hustling and getting money to support they families. Anybody out there that got a loved one behind them walls, make sure y’all show love. Y’all all they got and that commissary expensive than a bitch!” Then he said,
“I appreciate all the love and support from my family, friends and fans! New album dropping soon! Wrote a book too! Might call that b*tch ‘How To Hustle’ or ‘Blue Magic.’ Officially changing my name to BIGG MONEY BLUE! Shoutout to my n-ggas at Coleman Prison! I’m bout to get back to the MONEY! LET’S GO!”
The article reports Blue was released early due to the First Step Act, introduced in 2018 by former President Donald Trump. which was introduced by then-president Donald Trump in 2018. The act allows eligible inmates “to participate in recidivism reduction programs and earn credits towards early release.”
In 2021, Blue advised people to be better than him and not get caught up in PPP loans if they don’t need it.
