He's featured on Nelly's hit single "Ride wit Me." In 1999, he was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for armed robbery (prosecutors dismissed a first-degree assault charge). Nelly and the St. Lunatics campaigned for his release. They titled their group album Free City to support the release of City Spud from prison. He was released from prison, after serving 9 years, in 2008. He is now reunited with Nelly and the St. Lunatics and is recording with them for the new St. Lunatics album entitled City Free.
