Mendeecees Harris will soon be living life behind bars, but before the start of his near eight-year sentence, the reality star has a few things to say.
The Love & Hip Hop: New York co-star posted a lengthy message on Instagram for all the fans that “supported me, grew with me, changed hearts, minds and perspectives with me.”
“When I was young, hungry and closed minded I acted as such. Now I’m wiser but it’s wisdom born through pain, so that means enduring this will just make me wiser and stronger,” he wrote. “But who would have thought “Young DeeCee” that wore the ripped up worn shoes, that went to school on sugar sandwiches and borrowed rice would ever have a voice to speak to the masses.”
He continued, “I was the one with nothing, no push to go to school, no dinner on the table at night, no kiss goodbye in the morning, all I had was me for awhile. Just Me, plane ole me ( I don’t have college degrees, a huge resume of internships and jobs) would be able to influence a generation.”
Harris goes on to advise fathers to “go raise men.”
“Men to lead their family. Men to do the right thing. No matter what you had to do or may still be doing raise them babies right! Also, when you raise a man you teach an individual but when you raise a woman you build a nation. Protect our nation builders fellas! I could go on for days but I want y’all to know I’m good but good.”
He concluded, “My family is strong, real strong, so their good. Keep @theharrisbunch in your prayers and I will keep you all updated through my brother running my page. Be blessed, keep in contact, build and encourage each other, stop the hating and see you when I return.”
In December 2015, a Rochester judge sentenced the reality star to 97-months in a federal prison in connection to a past federal drug trafficking crime.
Harris pleaded guilty in exchange for an eight to ten year sentence and a $15,000 to $5 million fine. Harris’ lawyer, Donald Thompson, tells HipHollywood that although the reality star was sentenced to eight years, he will not serve the full time “for many reasons.”
