A 43-year-old Houston rapper known as “The Breadman” was sentenced Monday to 23 years in prison for trafficking drugs in the Houston area.

Jermaine West pleaded guilty on April 6 to 10 counts of drug trafficking related to the distribution of various drugs, including methamphetamine, cocaine and opioids, the Justice Department said. The prison sentence will be followed by six years of probation.

During the hearing, U.S. District Judge George Hanks heard prosecutors allege that West also engaged in gang activity. Hanks said West “destroyed people’s lives” and that “for 20 years [West] played a dangerous game” and that he had “played the game and lost”.
