Judge Says Turk Is A Flight Risk

A Federal Court in Memphis Tennessee has labeled

rapper Virgil "Turk" Virgil a flight risk and ordered him to stay

behind bars today, on the eve of the release of his latest album, Penitentiary


Turk, who is being held in a maximum security

prison in Tennessee, is accused of shooting a police officer while they were

raiding an apartment the rapper was in.

"We were hoping to have Turk out of prison

to help promote his album but alas we’ll have to market it on our own,"

KOCH Records General Manager & Executive Vice President Alan Grunblatt said.

"Penitentiary Chances is his best album yet and we’re sure Hot Boys

fans everywhere will love it."

Turk maintained his innocence and a second attempted-murder

charge was dropped when ballistic tests proved that the second officer was shot

by another police officer.

Penitentiary Chances will drop tomorrow

(April 27th).
