It’s been well over three years since Vallejo, Calif. rap artist Lul G was arrested for murder. The former SOB x RBE member was charged in the death of 26-year-old Rashied Flowers, killed on July 24, 2019. The Bay Area rapper pleaded no contest in a court appearance yesterday (March 2), and is expected to receive a 21-year sentence at his next hearing. XXL spoke to his attorney, Deputy Public Defender Max Fuentes, who expounded further on the impending sentence today (March 3).
"It is accurate that Mr. Harris plead [no contest] to voluntary manslaughter and will be serving 21 years in prison in relation to the 2019 shooting death of Mr. Flowers," Fuentes relays. "All I can say at this point is that [Deputy Public Defender] Ms. Tanasa and myself feel honored to be representing Mr. Harris, as well as fortunate to have secured this plea deal on his behalf." Lul G—real name George Harris—admitted he used his own gun during the murder in California's Solano County Superior Court, which helped to lessen the rapper’s time in prison. He will be formally sentenced on May 22, 2023.
Lul G’s Lawyer Confirms Impending 21-Year Sentence
Lul G, found commercial success in 2018 after the release of SOB x RBE’s debut project, Gangin’. A couple of weeks prior, the previously convicted felon appeared on Black Panther’s feature-heavy soundtrack alongside Kendrick Lamar. Lul G has one of the more memorable verses on “Paramedic” as K. Dot weaves in and out on assist. Fans immediately ran to social media in light of Fuentes’ statement. One saddened user tweeted how SOB x RBE “had the opportunity to be great.” Many others shared the sentiment today on his last Instagram post, dated September 9, 2019.
The boisterous “Popped Up” rhymer was arrested in Nevada and subsequently charged with the murder in September 2019. Lul G, who shot and killed Flowers inside a Fairfield, Calif. residence, went on to plead not guilty. At this time, SOB x RBE released Strictly Only Brothers, with no mention of their former member. The remaining SOB artists in the crew include DaBoii, Yhung T.O, and Slimmy B.
