He also said Jay “can’t relate” to him, boasting that his pre-prison “street” work as a drug dealer was bigger than Jay-Z before he got locked up. Shiesty is serving a five-year bid after pleading guilty to 2020 federal conspiracy charges in Florida.
“I still remain Untouched, Millions still in double digits,” he continued. “Tell google fix my net worth we can verify that shit right now. Yeah I’m locked up not fucked up. I was 21, up 8 figures; Jay-Z can’t even relate. My money tripled my followers.”
Along with his drawn-out post, Shiesty also shared photos of him donned in a grey prison suit, and his hair braided with a full beard.
“I’m still the Menace of Memphis,” he self-proclaimed on his status. The “Back in Blood” rapper continued by also thanking fans.

According to Gucci Mane, Shiesty was on 24-hour lockdown and given empty food trays. Shiesty is expected to get out in 2026.
