Atlanta rapper Ralo is almost home. The hip-hop entertainer has announced his freedom is near after spending well over two years behind bars in a federal prison on drug-related charges.
Ralo x Bond
On Wednesday, the Georgia native went online to break the massive news to fans. Ralo also dished on the moment he realized he would get placed in federal custody and what his state of mind is right now with his bond gearing up to be reviewed.
“ON APRIL 18, 2018 I WAS ARRESTED ON AH G5 JET. I LOOKED TO MY LEFT OUT THE WINDOW AN SEEN EVERY TOP FEDERAL AGENCY IN THE COUNTRY WIT GUNS YELLING RALO.

Recently, rap star 2 Chainz went to his social media channels to speak on wanting Ralo released. The rap heavyweight encouraged his fans to join a petition to get people like Ralo back home.

Wait, There’s More
In April 2018, Ralo landed behind bars after getting arrested at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport. Law enforcement claimed he traveled to California twice to get nearly 1,000 pounds of marijuana worth nearly $2 million to sell in Atlanta.
Terrell Davis, known by his stage name Ralo, faces a federal charge of possession with intent to distribute. Authorities allege Davis sold drugs from several apartment units he rents in Atlanta dubbed “Ralo’s Hood,” WSB reported. Davis and eight of his associates, believed to be part of his purported gang Famerica, are named in an 11-page criminal complaint. (Fox 13 Memphis)
Before You Go
Days prior, the rap entertainer had a request to leave jail denied. A judge refused to give Ralo the green light to get out from behind bars.
Despite the evidence against him, the rapper’s supporters say he gives back to the community, and is accused of selling a drug that’s legal in many other states. “Because he’s in Georgia, he’s going to prison for a year. Had he been in California, he would have been just another marijuana millionaire,” Veronica Waters said. The judge denied bond for the rapper, saying he violated probation on a prior arrest and was a convicted felon. Only one of the other defendants was granted bond. (WSB-TV)
