'L&HH' Star Mendeecees Harris Released From Prison After 4 Years

Mendeecees Harris is a free man!

According to The Shade Room, the former Love & Hip Hop: New York star "has officially been released from prison into the arms of his wife Yandy Smith, and is returning home to his family."

Mendeecees' release comes six months after outlets reported that the reality star was set to be released from federal prison in November 2020.

As fans know, the 41-year-old music manager was found guilty for his role in a drug trafficking ring and sentenced to eight to ten years behind bars back in 2015. While he appealed the decision, the Appellate Court ultimately upheld his original sentence. He was, however, given credit for time served given that he had already served 15 months before being granted bail in the case.

Mendeecees' sentence was part of a plea deal that required him to admit he helped to ferry hard drugs — heroin and cocaine — from New York City to the Rochester, New York area from 2006 to 2008.
