Give Puffy some credit for maintaining a roster that can stand behind the massive legacy of the Notorious one.
Checking in from the Murder She Wrote files, former Bad Boy G-Dep sits down with ABC's Nightline to discuss his decision to come forward and confess to <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2012/05/g-dep-sentenced-to-minimum-15-years-in-murder-case">the 1993 murder</a> that currently has him behind bars.
The legal drama of G-Dep came to an end today after a long, two-year process that began when he unknowingly <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/how-many-rappers-can-jail-hold">confessed to a cold-case murder</a>.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/g-dep">G-Dep</a> was <a href="http://news.yahoo.com/rapper-g-dep-convicted-1993-nyc-shooting-194221296.html">convicted by a judge and jury today</a>, charged with the 1993 murder of another man in a robbery gone awry.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/victims-brother-g-deps-an-idiot"> G-Dep now says he didn't kill the guy...technically. "Harlem, New York rapper G-Dep appeared in Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday (January 13th), where he pleaded not guilty to murdering a man 17-years-ago during a botched robbery in New York. The plea comes after G-Dep walked into the 25th precinct and admitted to shooting John Henkel in October of 1993. G-Dep said he confessed as part of a drug rehabilitation program, but he did not know his victim had died from the gunshot wounds. According to his lawyer Anthony Ricco, the not-guilty plea was a procedural step, so that G-Dep's confession to police could be scrutinized, because he was most likely under the influence of drugs at the time admitted to the murder." <a href="http://www.allhiphop.com/stories/news/archive/2011/01/14/22556984.aspx">[AHH]</a> A mere formality.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/how-many-rappers-can-jail-hold"> When G-Dep sought redemption in the arms of the NYPD, he opened up both new and old wounds for his family as well as the victim's loved ones. Now, the victim's stepbrother steps forward to <a href="http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/slay_fess_rapper_an_idiot_fmC3nkE2iOVtlq07FyQbKN">share his thoughts</a> with the NY Post, criticizing <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/how-many-rappers-can-jail-hold">G-Dep's now infamous confession</a>.
