Petey Pablo's Next Stop After Prison? Timbaland's Studio

Petey Pablo was only released from prison on Thursday morning (March 13), but the "Freek-a-Leek" rapper already has plans to take over the rap game. With the drama stemming from his 2010 gun charge behind him — the North Carolina MC served time on a 35-month sentence in federal prison — Petey is so pumped to win that he's taking cues from Will Ferrell's Ricky Bobby, the fictional race car driver who stops at nothing to get to the #1 spot. "I just want to say that I'm totally glad to be back in the race and behind the wheel of a car that has been fine-tuned for the greatest performance," Pablo (born Moses Barrett) said in a press release issued to MTV News after his release from FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey this morning.
