Lil Scrappy Released From Drug Rehab, To Begin Mentoring Teens

UPDATE #2: Lil Jon's former protege Lil Scrappy has kept his system clean of drugs for over 30 days, and now begins community service.

Lil Scrappy confirmed on Wednesday (May 29th) that he is headed to rehab.

After failing a court-ordered drug test a number of weeks ago, the Atlanta rapper addressed his hopes for the experience, and looking at the situation in a positive light.

"It is my hope that my time away from my family and especially my little girl, my daughter, will make me a better man," said Scrappy, according to WSBTV.com.

The rapper, who stars in "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta," was arrested for felony gun and marijuana possession in 2008, and received a three-year probation. He failed the drug test in March, refusing to provide another sample.

Initial reports stated that the urine Scrappy provided was deemed "questionable" because it was "cold to the touch." Scrappy later turned himself in to the police.

UPDATE: Lil Scrappy voluntarily entered an Atlanta-area rehab facility May 30 and the rapper's lawyer says the artist will be there until at least June 16, the date of his next hearing, according to TMZ.com. Scrappy's routine while in rehab includes a 6:30 am wake-up, group therapy, one-on-one therapy, no cell phone or laptop usage and a 10 pm curfew. He reportedly will not be allowed to have visitors for the first two weeks of his stay, either. 

Scrappy's attorney also said that the rapper will be assisted by a mentor while in rehab, according to RumorFix.com.

UPDATE #2: Over the past weekend, TMZ.com reports that Lil Scrappy was released from court-ordered drug rehabilitation, where he has lived since late May. Scrappy's lawyer Mawuli Mel Davis said, "Scrappy has had time to reflect, read, and write. He is now drug and alcohol free," after reporting that the former DTP/Def Jam Records artist was 30-days clean.

The report adds that Scrappy is going to begin mentoring teens next week.

    When youre struggling with drug addiction, sobriety can seem like an impossible goal. But recovery is never out of reach, no matter how hopeless your situation seems. Change is possible with the right treatment and support, and by addressing the root cause of your addiction.And this is what little Scrappy did.He realized hat he had to get out of the mess,even if it was for his little daughter.weak moments are always there,where there are chances of cheating or doing wrong deeds but he overcame all that and was able to free himself of drug and alcohol.So you need the grit,the determination and a positive reason to sail through the period of drug rehab.

    Rob, steal, kill, rape, be a total savage...then go to rehab for 30 days and you're ready to be a fuckin' mentor for children. How about making him pick up trash on the side of the road, and leave the child mentoring for people who actually have some fuckin' sense. They send renown writers and doctors to talk to kids in the burbs, they send rappers and crackheads 30 days clean to talk to kids in the hood. "Yo kids...listen up youknowwhatimsayin'...you shouldnt do drugs and shit...you should study yo' arithmetics and all dat shit...I mean..I dropped out of school to sell crack to my own people and now Im a rich superstar dats on da TV...but yall cant be like me cuz um...um...um...I'm Lil' Scrappy and you not..youknowwhatimsayin'...before I go I just wanna let yall know that my abum is droppin next month, it's called "Murder, Money, Mollys, and Maybachs"...youknowhatimsayin...peace.

      Yeah on the side of the piss containers they have a temperature gauge...if its below like 94 degrees they know that you had someone else piss in a bottle and brought it with u to try and beat the system since if it just came out of your body, it would be right around body temperature...I didn't know that when I was 14 and failed because of it . stupid shit this grown ass nigga shoulda known better

    so if it was "cold to the touch" that means it was a sample they made him do that they collected straight after him dispatching the sample which means he must of had some clean piss on him lol
