Diddy’s former Bad Boy Records artist Loon was released from prison on Wednesday (July 29), the New York Post reports.
The rapper – real name Amir Junaid Muhadith – was released due to the coronavirus pandemic, after a celebrity campaign urged Donald Trump to release him. US District Judge Terrence Boyle changed his sentence to time served, sayin that the virus was an “extraordinary and compelling” reason and that he wasn’t a danger to society.
Loon was arrested in Belgium for trafficking heroin in 2012. The following year, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin. His original sentence was 14 years in jail and an additional four years of supervised release.
