The Latest MC Home from Jail: Petey Pablo

After serving 35 months in jail over a stolen firearm charge, on Thursday (March 13) North Carolina’s Petey Pablo heads home from jail and straight into the studio with Timbaland. Pablo and Timbaland made the 2001 “Raise up,” a club hit forcing people to twist their shirts in the air like helicopters. And now he hopes to do it again.

"I'm now headed to the work shop to begin what will be noted as my best work ever with one of the greatest producers of all time,” Pablo said in a statement via MTV. “My Brother, my friend, my partner for life: mega producer Timbaland, the King!"
