Pooh Shiesty was sentenced today (April 20).

He was sentenced to five years and three months in prison. The situation stems from his gun conspiracy conviction linked to a confrontation outside a Florida hotel in October 2020 that ended with a man shot in the buttocks.

Rolling Stone points out Pooh Shiesty is “happy” with the decision. The 22-year-old rapper was facing life, but back in January, he pleaded guilty to one firearms conspiracy charge and avoided the life sentence.

In February 2020, Pooh Shiesty dropped his debut mixtape Shiesty Season. Last year, Pooh shared a message to fans. He said, “live from the cell, mane. Go tune into the mothaf*ckin’ BET Awards. We got big nominations,” he said, referring to nods for Song Of The Year, Best New Hip-Hop Artist, Best Collaboration, and Best Featured Verse for Lil Durk’s “Back In Blood.” He added, “Shout out to Meek Mill, mane. Real n***a.”
