Mendeecees Harris, one of the stars of the popular VH1 Love & Hip Hop reality show, was released on $600,000 bail Monday while his girlfriend, hip hop talent manager Yandy Smith, agreed in federal court to be responsible for $200,000 of her boyfriend’s bond package.
Harris, 35, is accused of a role in a New York City-based drug ring that included his brother, Tyrus Harris, and another man, Ronald Walker. Tyrus Harris pleaded guilty before Geraci Monday, and Walker pleaded guilty last year.
The drug ring transported cocaine to the Rochester region, federal authorities allege. Tyrus Harris faces a sentence of about five to seven years, under federal sentencing recommendations.
Harris and Smith have a 20-month old-son, and she is also raising a son of his from a previous relationship.
Yandy just confirmed moments ago on her Instagram account that Mendeecees is now out of prison:
