G. Dep was convicted of murder in 1993 shooting during a botched robbery two days ago. Since then, MTV has spoken to the former rapper about the conviction, which he says is God's will. G. Dep confessed 17 years later to the murder.

"However it went down, it was just one of them things where I knew I was facing some type of charge, so whatever the verdict was, I knew it was God's will," G. Dep said. "Someone was taken from [the Henkel] family, so I can't feel like I was robbed in any kind of way," he said. "I just want to thank everyone that was involved in the case. I don't have no ill thoughts towards anybody."

He added, "I'ma just stay strong and hopefully I'll see y'all in the near future or the far future. I know life goes on, praise God. And one day maybe I could say hello to y'all again."

G. Dep will face sentencing on May 8th.
