It was hard for him to stay on the straight path even with a successful music career ahead of him as worked harder on his criminal record in following years. G. Dep would find himself arrested over 25 times since 2003 for drugs, burglary and grand larceny.

As a father of an 11-year old girl and twin 5-year-old boys, G. Dep mentioned that his had mixed emotions about his confession as she did not encourage him to confess, but says now she understands why he admitted to the crime.

G. Dep claims that he will make the best out of his time in prison and says he plans on working on his autobiography while there.
