Love and Hip Hop New York star Mendeecees Harris made a few interesting statements.
He appeared on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay show and spoke about his life as a drug dealer. While Mendeecees is reminiscing, he spoke on a time he offered his mom for collateral because he was “moving a lot of weight.”
Mendeecees said, “I got some crazy stories. I remember one time I was dealing with a connect, and this gonna sound horrible, but I put my mom up for collateral.” Next, he explains why, he continues,
“I was getting a bunch of keys, and they was like, ‘Well, you gotta show me where your mom live at, because if you run off on this, we can’t afford for you to run off. I had no intention of running off, so I was like, ‘I’ll show you. ‘All right I’ll show you.’”
He claims his mother had no idea. Shannon asked why would he put his mother’s life in jeopardy, and he replied, “I never even told nobody that. When I look back at the decisions I made now, I be like, ‘I can’t believe I’m still here.’” Mendeecees continues,
“I think at that point I had good in my heart to do good business, so I didn’t think that far,” he continued after Shannon Sharpe told him he put his mother’s life in jeopardy. “I never even told nobody that. When I look back at the decisions I made now, I be like, ‘I can’t believe I’m still here.’”
Mendeecees admitted that was one of the worst things he’s done while selling drugs. He also said that life is in the past. Take a look:
In 2020, Mendeecees was released from prison for drug trafficking after serving four years of his eight year sentence. In 2015 he plead guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess heroin and cocaine in New York.
Revolt points out Mendeeces completed a substance abuse program and took courses in parenting, financial management, health, nutrition, and public speaking. The substance abuse program took one year off his sentence. In addition, Mendeece’s sentence was part of a plea deal that demanded he admits he helped ferry heroin and cocaine from New York City to Rochester, New York from 2006 to 2008.
