The episode in which Petey debuted was the same where there were guest appearances of Kelly Rowland and Ludacris. In the series, he made a collaboration with Lucious Lyon with a song “Snitch Bitch”.

In the fall of 2010 Petey was found at a North Carolina airport carrying a stolen handgun on his way to Los Angeles. He was sentenced to three years in prison for this criminal act. This was obviously a huge downgrade for his music since he couldn’t make it anymore and he had to take a long break from it.

“Carolina #1” was the name of his mixtape which was made from the lyrics he wrote while he was in prison. He never let his music be on the second place and even in hard times like this, he didn’t want to waste his time. He spent the days making music in his head.

Personal life

He was in a marriage with Monica Arnold Barret, but it lasted shortly and wasn’t a success. It began in 1997 and ended in 2000.

The media talked a lot about him as an artist who can’t commit to more than one thing. If he has a marriage,he is being distracted from his art. If he is occupying himself with his music, his marriage becomes something he doesn’t work on. This, the media claims, is probably the reason why he isn’t married nor can he get a stable relationship.

He rejected his wife’s accusations that he abused her phisically and emotionally.

Today he is in relationshop with Amy Caro, and it lasts for almost 16 years. Although they have problems as any couple has, they try to overcome them.
