Things are looking up for ‘Love & Hip Hop‘ star Mendeecees Harris, as the father of four and husband to Yandy Smith, is now set to be released from prison in 2020–earlier than originally expected according to fresh reports.

Harris was originally sentenced to a minimum of eight years in 2015 after he pleaded guilty to drug trafficking. He confessed to being a part of a drug ring that transported illegal substances from New York City to Rochester, NY. He said he was involved from 2006-2008.

He fought the sentence but it was later affirmed in an appeals court.

He served 15 months prior to getting the green light for bail, and that time went toward his ultimate sentence. Ultimately, he will serve about five years total.

He’s already finished a substance abuse prevention class as well as courses for budgeting and parenting while in prison. He also took classes for nutrition and public speaking

He’s father to four children, Asim, Omere, Skylar and Mendeecees, Jr.
