The troubles began in 2020 when it was reported the rapper was on the run after allegedly melting off his ankle monitor. A warrant was issued for his arrest and in early March, he turned himself into the authorities. The rapper was charged with being a fugitive from justice without a warrant.
Via Vladtv, news came forward through music exec and founder of Authentic Empire who discovered Foogiano, that Green County sentenced Foogiano to five years in prison. “Green County Just Gave @FoogianoDaMayor 5 years for cutting an ankle monitor for a gun charge that wasn’t his and was claimed by some one else this is beyond crazy,” he said. “we have to do something about this!”
