In 2021, Sheff G was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree. As his two-year sentence was coming to an end, he was among 32 named in a 140-count indictment from the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office that accused him and others of alleged gang activity and involvement in 12 shootings.

In the indictment, Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow were accused of using pig Latin in phone conversations to avoid being caught by authorities. "Defendants and other members of the 8 Trey Crips and 9 Ways gang also used a distinct form of pig Latin to show gang allegiance and to attempt to disguise their discussions of acts of violence, gun possession and other gang business," read the indictment.
