Juelz Santana Wants To Delay Jail Sentence To Attend Tyler Perry Event

Posted by

New York City, NY – Originally set to begin his prison sentence on Wednesday (January 30), Dipset rhymer and reality TV star Juelz Santana is pleading with the court to grant him a one-month extension for — among other things — filming of a Tyler Perry reunion in Georgia.

According to documents obtained The Blast that seek an extension on his freedom and permission to travel, Santana is set to appear at the event as it pertains to Love & Hip Hop.

“It is crucial to his professional career that he be able to participate, and it will provide closure for him as he embarks on his term of imprisonment,” the document reads.

His team also allege that he was given short-notice by officials, and has yet to receive his prison paperwork. Aside from rubbing elbows with Perry, the extension would allow him to wrap up his personal affairs and spend some time with family before turning himself in.

Santana was sentenced to 27 months in prison this past December after attempting to bring a loaded gun on a flight leaving Newark Airport in March.
