Eldorado Red Released - Lil Phat Death

Eldorado Red was released from jail after serving 3 years of his 25 year sentence.  The rapper, whose real name is Gary Bradford, was charged with the 2012 murder of Lil Phat.  If you have family members or friends in jail, don't lose hope.  Keep fighting for them if you think they're innocent.  Someone was definitely fighting for Eldorado Red.


Lil Phat (Melvin Vernell III) was shot and killed on June 7, 2012 in Georgia.  He was best known for the work he did on Webbie's classic track, "Independent." Eldorado received a 25 year sentence for conspiracy.  Deandre Washington was the person who shot and killed Lil Phat.  Red started serving his sentence in 2014.

In 2014, there were rumors that Red would be released but it took 3 years to finally happen.  I'm hoping he pulls a Gucci Mane and releases a classic album.


Deandre Washington, the person who actually killed Lil Phat, was sentenced to life in prison.  Red is using social media to share his return home.  He posted a picture of himself wearing Yeezys.  In the pic you can see his ankle monitor.

Eldorado also posted a video of himself getting a haircut.  He's having the best July 4th ever!
