I've just been told that G. Dep is no longer on Bad Boy. Of course, this is not a big surprise as it already seemed like he was, but I didn't want to do anything without official confirmation.
I'm sorry to hear it, but that's the way it goes. Definitely a fan of his work while with Bad Boy. Good luck.
Errol Louis at the New York Daily News did an article on G. Dep
Dep sat down to talk with me last week ó two days after getting released from jail ó about the ups and downs that took him from the top of the music charts to a cell on Rikers Island. ...
I could hardly believe the quiet, wary man across the table from me was the same G. Dep who made the hip-hop classic "Special Delivery," which carried an infectious beat and a video that introduced the world to the wiggly dance called the Harlem Shake. ...
When I met him, Dep had just spent 23 days on Rikers after a Jan. 15 arrest for grabbing and breaking a display-model cell phone during an argument with a T-mobile salesman in a Manhattan store. Dep's bail was only $750, but he stayed in Rikers because he couldn't raise the cash ó a sign of how far he'd tumbled since the heyday of the Harlem Shake. ...
I feel sorry for G. Dep. I like a lot of the music he produced at Bad Boy and it's unfortunate to see it work out like this.
G. Dep basically disappeared for the past several years. We haven't seen him since he put out 2001's Child of the Ghetto.
Dep isn't exactly the most talkative person you'll meet, but when we ran into him, he said he's been back in the studio working and might be putting out another album on Bad Boy in the future. One thing's for sure: He hasn't lost his spit game. Dep dropped an ice-cold a cappella freestyle, and the boy still has lyrics.

The AllHipHop.com rumors section has an update on G. Dep
All that crap talk about G-Dep has been proven false and I have to apologize for thinking it had some validity to it. I do have the deal with Dep though for those that want to know. First of all, he doesnít even live in New Yawk anymore, much less homeless. Heís an up-top transplant residing down in South Carolina with his family Ė doing alright. On the real side, heís had issues with his comeback and simply wants support from his label. I had The Deputy mixtape, but didnít hear much after that. At any rate, keep your head up Dep and weíll see you when you come back.

According to AllHipHop.com's rumor section
This one hurts. I am going to keep it real. An NYPD insider hit me up and gave me some sad information, which we will regard as flat-out rumors. The police-person said that they had a call about a delusional man in a NYC park. Word has is that man was none other than G-Dep, a rapper that was once down with Bad Boy. The word is, this man might have been on something that had him inebriated or high. The man did not know where he was or where he was going and he was basically out of it. He was arrested for something and thrown in a cell. Kind of sad, if itís true. Kind of sad, if its false.
I would stress: rumor, rumor, rumor. But, wanted to mention.
