Chicago rapper Bump J recently signed a plea deal that would give him a lighter prison sentence, for his part in a 2007 bank robbery in his hometown.
According to the local Wednesday Journal, Bump (real name: Terrance Boykin) faced a life sentence, but as a part of the plea deal he signed last month, he's likely to receive a minimum seven year sentence.
Back in January 2007, the rapper and one other man entered the a Chase Bank branch, wielding handguns and announcing a robbery. They then forced bank employees to hand over cash from the teller drawers and vault, making off with more than $100,000 in cash.
While no injuries were reported, all caught on surveillance cameras.
He was arrested late last year, following a routine traffic stop in Carbondale, Illinois, after the FBI got involved in an unpublicized manhunt.
The 28-year-old rapper initially faced anywhere from 37 to 46 months for the bank robbery itself, but because he threatened employees with a handgun, he faced life.
He will be required to serve a mandatory minimum seven years on the charge of brandishing a gun during a crime of violence.
Bump J is scheduled to be sentenced on September 1.
The rapper made a name for himself locally via countless mixtapes, including one with the popular DJ Drama called Chicagorilla. His buzz eventually earned him a record deal with Atlantic Records, but his debut was never released.
