Last week, Petey Pablo discussed his re-entry into the hip hop game and cleared up a few things. Ten years ago, Petey Pablo put North Carolina on the hip hop map with his "Raise Up" single. The song received much radio play and Petey Pablo quickly became a superstar.

Three years later, Petey Pablo returned to the game with another hit. It was following his 2004 album when Petey Pablo was seemingly gone for good. Currently, North Carolina is behind J. Cole, who released his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story today.

Recently, Petey Pablo discussed his relationship with J. Cole, praising him for his work. He said when he prepares his next album, J. Cole will definitely have a feature. But, his album may not see the light of day as quickly as he would like it to. Recently, Petey Pablo was sentenced to three years behind bars, following an incident on September 11, 2010.

Headed to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, Petey Pablo was arrested at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport for having a pistol in his bag. In March, Petey Pablo entered a plea agreement with prosecutors, pleading guilty to possession of a stolen firearm, with the additional charges being dropped. The confident feeling Petey Pablo had is obviously gone, as he will spend 35 months behind bars.

Hopefully, he will have enough time to release his next album, giving North Carolina fans a collaboration between Petey Pablo and J. Cole.
