Hump is the founder of Sucka Free, an influential Houston Hip-Hop label best known for releasing albums by Lil Flip.

Hump, born Estell Douglas Hobbs Jr, 52, was arrested on drug charges in December of 2011, after an investigation revealed that he was part of an African-American drug network.

Federal prosecutors arrested dozens of others in the network, which sold hundreds of kilos of cocaine regularly, from 1995 until 2010.

Hobbs would receive hundreds of kilos of cocaine and store drugs for the network, which operated in Mexico, Houston, Chicago and Mississippi.

Hobbs pleaded guilty on Monday (March 26) and now faces the minimum mandatory of 10 years in prison, without the possibility of parole.

At its height, Sucka Free released Lil Flip’s platinum album Undaground Legend and its follow-up, U Gotta Feel Me, which went double platinum.
