“It’s like my worst nightmare, that’s why it’s always been trying to get corrected,” he said.
The rapper, who after his release admitted that some of the memes were funny, added that he had gone through worse situations than memes mocking him.
“It ain’t about the meme, it’s about the bigger picture. But I done been through way worse things in my life than somebody putting me on a meme.
“I been shot — what is a meme? A meme is nothing. That’s something on the internet that I can do like this [turns over phone] and never see again. I look at bullet scars every day, so it’s like, a meme, bro?”
The rapper who had said that he’ll fight to stay in the country, shared his ordeal.

“Nobody wants to sit in jail, especially if they don’t have the money to fight it and they ain’t been to court in three months.”
