G-Dep, who rocked out with Diddy and Black Rob on 2001’s “Let’s Get It” from P. Diddy & The Family: The Saga Continues album which helped spawn the “Harlem Shake” dance to the masses, has turned himself into police for a murder he says he committed 17 years ago.
According to The New York Post, G-Dep, whose real name is Trevell Coleman, walked into the 25th Precinct in New York and confessed to the cold case.
The 36-year-old G-Dep who was 18 at the time of the crime told police,
“I shot and killed someone 17 years ago.”
The murder reportedly happened on October 19, 1993 outside the James Weldon Johnson Houses when G-Dep attempted to rob John Henkel.
G-Dep, whose rap name was short for “Ghetto Dependent,” grew up in those projects and told police officers he was riding a bicycle when he approached the 32-year-old Henkel on Park Avenue and East 114th Street and announced a robbery.
The former Bad Boy records rapper told police detective William Dunn that Henkel resisted and grabbed his .40-caliber gun. He allegedly admitted that he pulled away and shot his victim three times in the chest.
Coleman then said he fled and tossed the weapon into the East River.
The victim was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Detectives stated that the crime “had been eating away at him.”
G-Dep has been charged with murder and is currently being held without bail and has over 25 arrest since 2003 from charges that include burglary and drugs.
All you can do is pray for all those involved with this one…
A special Pink Party was hosted by
Sean “P Diddy” Combs in New York on
Oct. 14 to benefit local breast
cancer charities. There was a $1000
entry fee to party with the star
and a $10 fee to get inside the
bash. P Diddy himself was
reportedly paid $80,000 for his
presence. The beneficiaries are
claiming they are yet to receive
any money raised during the event.
Diddy’s stream of band fallouts is continuing as Day 26 formally announces that they’ve left his Bad Boy record label. While Diddy embarks on new territory with his recent signing to Interscope, his brain child of Quanell, Willie, Brian and Mike will do the same. The group has moved from Diddy’s emblem to Atlantic Records. By doing so, hopefully they’ll be able to salvage their career before their demise a la Danity Kane.
While their days with Bad Boy were numbered from the start, Willie is adamant that there’s no bad blood between the group and the powers that be. He told TheBoombox,
“Bad Boy is always our family, but we’re with Atlantic right now…we really want to get people focused on the artistry, on the music. I think a lot of people lost it with the entertainment of the show. So now, we really want to show people what we’re all about, that we do our thing whether it’s on stage, in the studio, writing and producing — we do it all.”
The group isn’t looking to put an album out until sometime next year, but in the meantime, ladies can invest in their women’s shoe line. Released in September, Eight2Six shoes coincided with the groups single, “Your Heels.” The line’s first product was the “Swagga Heel” featured in three different colors and priced at $99.99.
Am I the only one that’s never heard of these shoes?!
No? Didn’t think so….
It’s the Diddy curse I’m telling you! I DO NOT want to work for Diddy!
