A few months ago, Honeykomb Brazy was arrested for his participation in a shootout that took place right before his grandparent's funeral.
Brazy's grandparents were shot to death and then had their house burned down in February. The police believed they were killed by Brazy's opps over beef. When Brazy returned home to Alabama for the funeral he got into a gunfight that was then posted on social media. That violated his probation that he was granted after serving 18 months after he was convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Earlier this week he was sentenced to 13.5 years for that violation.
During the sentencing, prosecutors showed 15 social media clips of Brazy with guns. They also presented the video of the pre-funeral shootout.
After the judge made his ruling, Brazy's lawyer Jeff Deen spoke to the media.
"I wish the judge had denied the State’s motion to revoke [HoneyKomb Brazy's] probation. His creativity influences and inspires others in his social circle. However, I can understand the judge’s opinion. He Conducted a 2 1/2 hour hearing and then took three weeks to review the evidence presented which included a plethora of videos. Even if the guns, dope, and alcohol weren’t real in the videos, I can see why the judge could conclude that HoneyKomb's depiction of drugs, guns, alcohol, and misogyny would not be conduct becoming of a probationer. We plan on appealing the judge's decision. In the meantime, I believe that this experience will drive Nashon toward providing a more positive and mature message for his many fans."
