Mendeecees Harris enjoyed notoriety as part of the popular Love & Hip Hop: New York cast alongside his partner Yandy Smith, but he was sentenced to eight to 10 years in prison for drug trafficking. According to an exclusive new report, Harris will see freedom next year and will have served just over half the time of his original sentence.
Bossip exclusively reports:
[Yandy Smith-Harris’] incarcerated husband and former co-star Mendeecees Harris is set to be released from federal prison next year after being sentenced to at least eight years for drug trafficking.
Mendeecees’ release date is now November 2020, which means he’ll serve a little more than half of his actual sentence, according to records from the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
Under a plea deal, Mendeecees admitted that from 2006 to 2008, he helped to ferry hard drugs from New York City to the Rochester, NY area.
In 2015, a federal judge sentenced Mendeecees to eight to ten years in prison for his role in a drug trafficking ring that flooded upstate New York with heroin and cocaine.
Harris, now 40, is currently housed in a medium-security prison in New Jersey after initially being jailed in Pennsylvania.

News recently broke that Tekashi 6ix9ine’s crew was plotting to “feed” him, and even more information has surfaced regarding his crew. Federal prosecutors have hit members from the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods with drug trafficking charges.
As per a report from The Blast, the U.S. Attorney filed extra charges against Jamel “Murda Mel” Jones, for narcotic charges, and additionally possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. Supposedly, Jones, who was a key member from 6ix9ine’s group, trafficked a lot of heroin, fentanyl and MDMA.
Notwithstanding drug trafficking charges, Jones was associated with a discussion between Kifano Jordan (Tekashi’s previous manager) and others. In the transcript gotten by TMZ, the gathering was hoping to hurt the Brooklyn rapper.
“[Tekashi] is trying to dry snitch at the same, home,” Jones says. “But he keep saying, fuck Treyway, fuck that nigga, Treyway. Ain’t no nigga, Treway. Fuck Treway.”
Fortunately for 6ix9ine, he isn’t facing any drug trafficking charges. The Dummy Boy rapper is currently facing up to 32 years to life in jail after being indicted for guns charges and racketeering on Nov. 18. Tekashi 6ix9ine has plead not guilty to these charges.
The trial is set to start on Sept. 4, 2019.

Over the weekend, a former Atlanta rapper and another man were arraigned and face drug trafficking charges. According to reports, Tommie “Columbia BT” Walker and Juan Carlos Garcia-Martinez were caught allegedly attempting to move $4,000,000 in cocaine in what appears to be a multi-state operation.
Tommie Walker — also known as “Columbia BT” — and Juan Carlos Garcia-Martinez were arraigned on Friday. They face federal charges of drug trafficking and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
“These defendants were allegedly part of a multi-state drug distribution scheme that transported and distributed cocaine worth approximately $4 million,” said U.S. Attorney B.J. Pak. “Thanks to the work of law enforcement in Georgia, South Carolina and Colorado, this drug enterprise is now history.”
According to Pak, the investigation started in August 2017.
Pak said Walker is accused of operating a warehouse in the Atlanta area where he received shipments of cocaine hidden in tractor-trailers from Colorado. The cocaine would then be distributed throughout Georgia and South Carolina. Garcia-Martinez is alleged to be a co-conspirator.
During the investigation, officers seized more than 135 kilograms of cocaine — valued at more than $4 million. They also confiscated more than $220,000 in cash.
Columbia BT is facing conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and three counts of possession with intent to distribute cocaine charges. Garcia-Martinez, and another man, Samuel Anchondo-Galaviz, face conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and one count of possession with intent to distribute cocaine charges each.
