Though the rapper is now a free man, his latest sentence is not the first he has faced during his career. Between 2005 and 2008, Mozzy was arrested three times by the Sacramento Police for various crimes, including illegal possession of a firearm and evading police. In 2014, he was reportedly arrested in Sacramento due to a long-term investigation by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department. The department was investigating Mozzy's involvement in drug trafficking and other criminal activities. After the arrest, Mozzy faced multiple felony charges, including possessing a firearm by a felon. This resulted in the rapper being unable to leave California until 2017 due to being on probation.

In 2021, Mozzy was arrested for gun possession by a convicted felon following a traffic stop in Culver City, California. While driving, the rapper was pulled over for traffic violations. According to authorities, the smell of marijuana upon approaching the vehicle prompted them to search the rapper's car. Upon searching his vehicle, the arresting officer allegedly found a Glock Model 26 Gen 4, 9mm caliber pistol. The officer also found 16 rounds of Speer 9mm Luger caliber ammunition and a personal amount of weed. Mozzy would be released after posting a $35,000 bond. In July 2022, the rapper would turn himself into police custody. Initially scheduled to be released on July 23, 2023, the rapper was released after serving ten months.

"Life comes at you fast. Sometimes shit gets real [and] you gotta take that deal," said Mozzy in a statement to the press before beginning his sentence. "It'll get slimy out here. Appreciate my loved ones. Chin up, chest out. Love you the most."

Now that Mozzy is free again, he has much to look forward to in his career. With the sentence coming off the heels of Mozzy signing with Yo Gotti's CMG, the artist is ready to drop more hits with his label mates. Fans still appreciate the 15-song album, Survivor's Guilt, which featured guest appearances from Gotti. The album also featured appearances from 42 Dugg, Roddy Ricch, YG, and EST Gee. Mozzy recently released the follow to Survivor's Guilt, titled Kollect Kall, earlier this year as well.
