North Carolina rapper Petey Pablo was released today after serving two years in prison for possession of a stolen firearm that the Raleigh Durham Airport police found in his carry-on luggage in 2010, on 9/11.

The rapper was headed to the 2010 MTV Music Awards when he was stopped by police.

Best known for his hit singles “Freak-a-Leek” and “Raise Up”, Pablo was released from prison four months early ahead of his regular release date. The rapper linking up with Timbaland should come as no surprise beings that he produced the rappers hit song “Raise Up.

The rapper stated earlier today, “I just want to say that I am totally glad to be back in the race and behind the wheel of a car that has been fine tuned for the greatest performance,” states Pablo. “I’m now headed to the workshop to begin what will be noted as my best work ever with one of the greatest producers of all time. My brother, my friend, my partner for life mega producer, Timbaland, the king. See ya in a few, shirt still spinning!”

There is no better time than now to do the helicopter dance. Welcome Home!
