When will Sheff G be released? Everything we know about the rapper’s indictment.

As of this writing, there’s no way to tell when Sheff G will be released.

After all, prosecutors have some pretty strong evidence against him and his 31 co-defendants — alleged members of the 8 Trey Crips and the 9 Ways gang — who have reportedly been linked to a dozen murders over the span of two years.

Many of the mass shootings allegedly committed at the behest of Sheff G injured innocent bystanders. Now, he’s facing up to 25 years of prison for orchestrating the crime ring, which the State said was funded by the money he made from his rap career.

The Mayor of New York, Eric Adams, described the members of the crime organization as “dangerous people” who needed to be off the streets of New York.

"No longer will these 32 individuals shoot their guns in the streets of New York City and we as a city are safer for that," James Essig, NYPD Chief of Police, said in a conference (per NBC.)

Known for being the pioneer of New York’s drill rap movement, Brooklyn, N.Y.-based rapper Sheff G gained popularity following the release of his 2017 single “No Suburban”, however, he was notorious in the streets long before he went viral on social media.

Sheff G joined the Gangsta Crips when he was only 12 years old. In his youth, he was arrested on several occasions for fighting, gun possession, and robbery. His 2023 arrest only adds to his lengthy criminal record. With the exception of a few short-lived jail sentences, he’s managed to evade the courts and keep his freedom for this long.

But we wouldn’t be surprised if his luck has finally run out.
