Rapper G-Dep

Rapper G-Dep has confessed to killing a man in East Harlem at age 18. The rapper walked into the 25th Precinct on Wednesday (Dec. 15th) to admit that he fatally shot 'John Henkel' outside of a East Harlem housing project on October 19, 1993. A police officer has shared that the crime committed by G-Dep whose real name is Trevell Coleman kept "eating away at him". The rapper has been charged with murder and is currently being held without bail.

According to online reports:

Coleman reportedly confessed that Henkel resisted the robbery and grabbed his .40-caliber gun. Coleman then allegedly pulled away and shot Henkel three times in the chest, and upon review of the cold-case file all of Coleman's details matched. Coleman was 18 at the time, but has been arrested 25 times since 2003 for drugs, burglary and grand larceny. He has been charged with murder, and is being held without bail.

Coleman is best known for his album Child Of The Ghetto, featuring the single "Let's Get It.". He was signed to rapper Diddy's Bad Boy Records at the time, and Diddy performed on the single. Coleman reportedly no longer has ties to the label, but we can relive his glory days with the "Let's Get It" music video.


  1. Almost all of Puffy's artist have criminal backgrounds. His company doesn't run background check and puffy like to pick them up off the streets especially the killers.

    It good to know that dude turned himself in to authorities and now John's family has the closure that they were seeking.

  2. jay-Z used drug money to start Roca-fella and Puffy had his 'Bad Boys' out robbing people to start his label 'bad boys'.

    smh @ puffy's stick up boys.

  3. While puffy spent a full week on BET's 106&Park, one of his former artist walked in a precinct to turn himself in for a crime he committed almost a decade ago!
