While serving a sentence on drug related charges in Clinton Maximum Security Correctional Facility, Ruger recorded two freestyles over the jailhouse phone that made their way onto the Dips’ debut album, <em>Diplomatic Immunity</em>. He was also featured on “This Is What I Do,” in which Cam’ron introduces the rapper as saying “He locked up. He about to come home.”
