The Philly native was put on probation after being arrested on gun charges back in 2008 and serving eight months in jail. His probation was revoked after he failed to get permission to book concerts out-of-town, did not provide his probation officer with a working phone number, posted a photo where he could be seen holding a gun on Instagram and put derogatory posts about his probation officer and prosecutor on Twitter.
