Earlier this year 03 Greedo was released from prison after facing drug trafficking and illegal possession of a firearm charges. He didn't waste any time getting back into the studio to record new tracks and back on the road playing shows for fans. In a recent video shared on Instagram by DJ Akademiks, Greedo thanked fans for their continued support. The video's caption reads "03 Greedo thanks his fans for keeping him rich while he was in jail." That description is no joke as he literally ends his speech mentioning directly that he appreciates fans keeping him rich throughout his sentence.

03 Greedo has had an incredibly busy 2023 for someone who began the year incarcerated. Shortly after the news broke that he would be released from prison, he surprise dropped his Free 03 mixtape. The project had features from KenTheMan, Drakeo The Ruler, and more. He followed that up in March with an absolutely massive new album called Halfway There. The 33-track, 100-minute project proved just how little time Greedo wasted getting back to making music. The tracklist has a ton of features from Maxo Kream, Ty Dolla $ign, Rich The Kid, Babyface Ray, and more.

03 Greedo's Message To Supporters

In addition to his two projects, 03 Greedo has also popped up with guest spots on a number of other artist's singles. He also tried to repair some burned bridges with other artists, in particular with J. Cole. Way back in 2018, Greedo said in an interview that J. Cole was "trash." In a tweet he made he retracted the criticism and admitted that he was wrong all along.

Greedo was also part of a conversation about whether or not rap has an upper age limit. On the Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast he made the argument that if rappers hit 40 without making it, they should stop. While the hosts disagreed with that notion, it sparked a conversation online about the genres upper ceiling. What do you think of 03 Greedo's message to his fans?
