In April 2016, D.C. rapper Fat Trel was arrested on DWI and narcotics distribution charges two weeks after being busted for trying to exchange counterfeit money at a casino. Now, after being locked up for over a year, Fat Trel is officially free.

The MMG rapper, born Matrell R. Reeves, made the announcement on Instagram Friday (Sept. 22), posting a couple pictures to let the world know he's free.

Trel's been relatively quiet on the music front since getting locked up last year. His most recent mixtape is 2016's SDMG 2
