D.C. rapper Fat Trel has been released from prison. On Friday (Oct. 15), footage circulated of the emcee as he made his way out of the prison facility.

“You know what the fuck it is,” he’s heard saying in the clip. “The king of Northeast is back nigga, and you know what the fuck is up with me nigga.”

Trel, born Martrel Rayshard Reeves, was arrested on July 8, 2018 for possession of a firearm and ammunition. At the time, cops pulled the rapper over for traffic violations and discovered that he was without identification or a driver’s license as it had previously been suspended.

Trel — who allegedly reeked of alcohol and marijuana — was asked to step aside as officers conducted a search on his vehicle and found a .40-caliber pistol loaded with 10 rounds of ammunition. The pistol was later identified as a “ghost gun,” meaning it was created to function as a firearm. Per Justice.gov, these types of pistols typically lack serial numbers, making them difficult to trace.

The D.C. rapper pleaded guilty for the illegal possession of a ghost gun last year and faced a maximum of 10 years in prison. Last month, however, U.S. District Judge Paula Xinis revealed he would only be sentenced to two years and six months in federal prison and three years of supervised release.

Fat Trel, who is signed to DTLA Records, is a former signee of MMG and Atlantic Records. Throughout the course of his rap career, he’s released a slew of mixtapes featuring collaborations with Rick Ross, Big K.R.I.T., Chief Keef, Wale, Gucci Mane, E-40, YG and more. His most recent effort Big Homie dropped last year with 18 tracks and guest appearances from artists, including No Savage, Big Flock, Goonew, Trippa and Z-Wayne.
