(AllHipHop News) Rappers G. Dep and Domination have been locked up on Rikers Island for the better part of a year, with both men awaiting trial for serious crimes.
Feed DA Wolves CEO/former G-Unit associate Domination is currently facing a manslaughter charge, as well as several counts of gang assault.
G. Dep is currently awaiting trial after he walked into a police precinct in December of 2010 and admitted he shot a man during a 1993 robbery.
Unbeknownst to G. Dep, the man died from his gunshot wounds, resulting in a murder charge against the rapper.
In an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com, Domination said that he has been in touch with G. Dep.
“I just bumped into G. Dep you know I’m in the same building as Dep,” Domination told AllHipHop.com. “We was cool before we got in here, we used to go to the studio in Manhattan. Dep used to be there.”
According to Domination, G. Dep is holding up well, despite the unusual circumstances of his case.
According to G. Dep’s own admission, he copped to the shooting as part of a rehab program, during his recovery from drug and alcohol abuse.
He had no idea that John Henkel, the man he shot in October of 1993, died from the three gunshots he took to the chest.
“His spirits are up…at the end of the day, you don’t know why that man chose to do what he did,” Domination told AllHipHop.com. “He dealt with his demons the way he dealt with his demons. He felt like he owed something to God. He doesn’t owe nothing to NO man on earth. He’s definitely good though, from my perspective. I see him, he’s definitely good peoples.”
Both rappers are facing stiff sentences if convicted for their alleged actions.
Earlier this year Domination rejected a plea deal and will stand trial sometime this Spring/Summer for his crimes.
He is facing between 5 and 25 years for the charges.
Despite his confession, G. Dep rejected a plea deal in January of 2011 and is currently awaiting trial.
G. Dep faces 25 years to life for the murder.
A compilation of Domination’s material is being put together for release entitled FreeDom while G. Dep has a full album for sale on ITunes titled Ghetto Legend.
