*Rapper Petey Pablo of “Freek-a-Leek” fame has been released from prison after a two-year bid for gun smuggling.

The entertainer was arrested at Raleigh Durham Airport on Sept. 11, 2010 after cops say he tried to take a stolen gun through airport security. He was sentenced to 35 months at a federal prison, but was released today, according to TMZ, four months ahead of schedule.

Pablo tells the website he wants to return to hip-hop and has already hooked up with Timbaland.

“I’m now headed to the work shop to begin what will be noted as my best work ever with one of the greatest producers of all time,” said Pablo. “See ya in a few, shirt still spinning!”
