Rapper 42 Dugg, whose real name is Dion Marquise Hayes, has been sentenced to one year after failing to report to prison as required. The 26-year-old rapper was scheduled to begin a one-year sentence in March 2021 for a probation violation related to a 2020 gun case, but he failed to report to prison on the appointed date.
According to reports, 42 Dugg was arrested in early April in Oakland County, Michigan, and was subsequently taken into custody. He appeared before a judge sentenced to one year in jail for failing to report to prison. The rapper will serve his sentence at the Oakland County Jail.
42 Dugg gained popularity with his 2019 song “You Da One,” a collaboration with fellow Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley. He has since released several successful projects and collaborated with other notable artists in the industry.
The rapper’s legal troubles began in 2020 when he was arrested on weapons charges. He was allegedly found in possession of a loaded firearm while riding in a car with another individual who also possessed a weapon. 42 Dugg was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony. He later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18 months probation.
Following his failure to report to prison, 42 Dugg faced criticism from fans and fellow artists. Many fans took to social media to express their disappointment, with some suggesting that the rapper should have taken his legal obligations more seriously.
The incident serves as a reminder of the consequences of failing to comply with legal requirements. As a public figure, 42 Dugg’s actions are under greater scrutiny, and his legal troubles have brought attention to the ongoing issue of gun violence in the United States.
Fans and fellow artists are hopeful that the rapper will learn from this experience and use his platform to raise awareness about the importance of complying with the law and addressing gun violence.
