03 Greedo has been sentenced to 20 years in prison on gun and drug charges, DJ Booth reports. A rep for 03 Greedo confirmed the news to The FADER. According to a report from Jeff Weiss, the rapper originally faced 300 years in prison stemming a 2016 arrest in Texas when Potter County Sherriff deputies forced open his car's trunk after claiming to smell weed and allegedly found "four pounds of methamphetamine and two stolen pistols." A report of the arrest was detailed by a Texas ABC affiliate in 2016. Weiss notes that Greedo's team hopes he'll earn a reduced sentence of five years based on good behavior.

And on Sunday, he shared an Instagram video revealing he wouldn't begin his sentence until this summer.
