Lupe Fiasco is happy that G. Dep is out of jail, but he has a special request for the rapper when he returns.

The renowned Harlem rapper Trevell Coleman, who was born in Chicago, has new songs that he humbly offered on Thursday, April 4.

Lupe, who also had a wish of his own, used X (previously Twitter) to wish the “Special Delivery” rapper a happy birthday.

“Get G-Dep to the studio immediately!” he wrote. That follow-up is necessary! Welcome home! [face with steam coming from nose emoji]

Earlier this week, the veteran of Bad Boys Records was released from prison. The 49-year-old was one of 16 individuals who received mercy from New York Governor Kathy Hochul towards the end of last year. He would not have been eligible for parole as soon as his sentence was commuted.

G. Dep’s official Instagram feed chronicled his release and the festivities that followed, including his first post-prison meal at iHop and being welcomed with a prayer circle outside Fishkill Correctional Facility in upstate New York.

G. Dep’s original 15-year to life sentence came with conditions prohibiting him from applying for parole before the 15-year mark. But after serving 13 years, he was able to petition the parole board thanks to his mercy grant.

The rapper, who was eighteen at the time, attempted to rob someone in East Harlem, New York, in 1993. Dep fired three shots in response to the victim’s resistance, subsequently identified as 32-year-old John Henkel, then left the scene without checking on him.
