Former Bad Boy rapper Loon, who now goes by the name Amir Junaid Muhadith, has reportedly been given a 14-year prison sentence after being found guilty of drug trafficking charges that stem from 2008.

Amir recently spoke on the matter while behind bars, explaining that the charges were falsely based off of criminal conspiracy. "Some individuals had crossed my path who were interested at one point about the music business," he said. "These individuals called me in regards to something that was totally away from the lifestyle and the life I was living. The fact that I responded to these individuals placed me under the umbrella of conspiracy."

Amir goes on to explain that had he gone to trial and lost, he would have faced mandatory life in prison. Listen to the full clip below.
