Above The Law’s Big Hutch Released from Prison

bighutch.jpgGregory Hutchinson, who made his name as one-third of influential L.A. group Above The Law, was released from the Federal Correctional Institution in Forrest City, Arkansas this past Friday (July 21) after serving 105 weeks on charges of conspiracy to traffic 1,000 pounds of marijuana. Hutchinson, known to fans as Cold 187um or Big Hutch, was originally indicted in July of 2004 and accepted a plea deal on the advice of his attorney. He maintains his innocence to this day. Apart from his group work with Above The Law, Hutchinson also released two solo records and assumed production duties for Death Row Records at the request of then-incarcerated label head Suge Knight. According to the Above The Law’s website, the West Coast veteran has assumed the new moniker “1-Ate Seven” and is expected to focus heavily on his production talents in preparation for the group’s return to the industry. Fellow Above The Law member DJ Total K-OSS was also released from prison earlier this year, following the completion of a sentence for drug possession and child endangerment.
