New Orleans rapper Turk has been released from jail, after serving 9 years in prison. Turk was convicted in 2005 of attempted murder and felony possession of a firearm in connection to the shooting of a police officer in Memphis.
Turk, born Tab Virgil Jr., was released from Forrest City, Arkansas Federal Prison right at the start of this past weekend on October 12.
Turk spoke with New Orleans, Louisiana’s Q93:
“That chapter of my life is over.. I ain’t holdin’ no grudges because God does everything for a reason… They meant it for bad, but He meant it for good. So I’m just gonna make the best out of it and maybe I can help somebody who’s going through what I already went through.”
Now a free man, Turk is talking about getting up with Lil Wayne for a possible Hot Boy Reunion on Cash Money Records. Over the weekend, a rep for Turk reached out letting MemphisRap.com know that Turk is looking forward to hitting the studio soon.
Turk is definitely ready to get back in the hip hop game and possibly reconnect with the ‘Hot Boys’ (Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and B.G.) but says he’s first going to get his “family straight.”
“First things first, getting my family straight,” Turk stated to Q93, adding that he’ll still be having some music soon though.
When asked would he be hooking up anytime soon with Lil Wayne and his former ‘Hot Boys’ crew at Cash Money, Turk stated that there wasn’t anything final but it’s definitely “in the air.”
Ironically, Turk is now out of jail while, unfortunately, rapper B.G. is in the midst of a 14-year prison sentence.
Outside of music, Turk is already working on releasing other new projects including a book about his life entitled “The AutoThugography” of Turk and a screenplay about his life entitled “Reckless.”
