“It’s Time To Go Again‼️” Yo Gotti wrote in the post’s caption. “W E L C O M E H O M E @42_dugggg.”
42 Dugg, whose real name is Dion Hayes, spent roughly 17 months behind bars. He failed to report for a six-month sentence at a West Virginia prison, leading to his arrest in May 2022.
The Detroit native was supposed to serve his six-month prison sentence for probation violation, which stemmed from a firearm possession case. The rapper mistakenly believed he did not need to begin serving time while going through the appeal process.
Earlier this year, 42 Dugg pleaded guilty to failure to surrender. A Georgia judge sentenced him to one year in prison in April.
42 Dugg begged for help just a few weeks after his sentencing. He said his prison conditions were terrible in several Instagram Stories posts. CMG boss Yo Gotti responded by offering $2 million to any attorney who could secure 42 Dugg’s release.
“I got 2 million for any lawyer that can get Dugg out early,” he wrote on Instagram in May.
Six months later, 42 Dugg was able to leave prison.
