“I’M FREE !!” he wrote on Instagram following his release, also referring to himself as the “KING OF FUCKING NEW YORK”.

Hernandez was initially expected to serve between 37 years and life in prison after pleading guilty to an array of charges in December last year, including racketeering, conspiracy and attempted murder.

However, the rapper’s sentence was cut back to 24 months after he began cooperating with authorities and testifying against other members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang.

Hernandez was granted permission to serve the last of his sentence under house arrest in April, due to coronavirus concerns.

He also recorded ‘Trollz’ with Nicki Minaj, which earned him his first number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
