Rapper Formerly known as Loon Is getting released from prison after friends lobbied Trump

The rapper formerly known as Loon is getting out of federal prison on Wednesday due to the coronavirus pandemic following a long celebrity campaign urging President Trump to release him.

US District Judge Terrence Boyle converted his sentence to time served, finding the virus was an “extraordinary and compelling” reason and that he was not a danger to society.

Chauncey Hawkins, 45, served more than eight years for his role in a heroin-dealing conspiracy. He was scheduled to be released in August 2021.

Supporters say Hawkins only made an introduction in the drug deal and that he turned his life around.
