LHHNY Mendeecees and Yandy Smith-Harris offer optimistic updates on his time in prison

Did Mendeecees Harris get released 3

Love & Hip Hop New York fans are still recovering from the news that cast member Mendeecees Harris has been ordered to serve a lengthy prison sentence on drug trafficking charges. However, there’s no shortage of good news for the Harris family as LHHNY Season 7 gets ready to air.

As we reported when Mendeecees surrendered to authorities and formally began his sentence, his eight-year sentence came with a couple of asterisks. For one thing, U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci, Jr. noted at the time of Harris’ sentencing that Mendeecees had been working hard at turning his life around. In part because Mendeecees had become a prominent anti-drug speaker to disadvantaged youth all along the East Coast, Geraci gave him the shortest possible sentence–eight years–that federal guidelines allowed. In addition, Mendeecees had already served fifteen months in prison before being sentenced; that figure is now twenty-five months, or a little more than two years. Finally, it’s possible that, with good behavior, the eight years could be reduced to six, or even five.

And Mendeecees himself has impressed fans with his upbeat, positive attitude in his sporadic social media updates. His most recent update not involving his recent birthday (on which more in a minute) is certainly an example of both:

As for Mendeecees’ birthday? His wife Yandy couldn’t contain herself, and went social media crazy with happy birthday wishes for her husband. It’s clear that the Harris family, despite its tribulations, is full of love:

A year ago today😍😍😍(no I'm not a singer and I did my own make up and was about 15pounds heavier but who's watching. #Repost @yandeecees with @repostapp ・・・ It's that day of the year again guys. Someone's dad and husbands birthday. Someone's brother and sons birthday. Someone's friend and someone 'who people look up to's birthday. A person who wipes off the tears and cracks jokes to make you smile. A person who is all about his family, even when he may not be able to be there 24/7. A person who is really chill and sweet, but will make you wish you wouldn't have said anything at all if his wife or kids is being attacked. Before you like and just keep scrolling, let's take a moment to realize whose birthday it is. Everybody comment and say, "Happy Birthday Mendeecees!" Because it is Mendeecees birthday guys❤️🎉♏️. @mendeecees @yandysmith #HappyBirthdayMendeecees

    I could not stand during the show how they would talk like he was being taken away. They would say they are taking him away from his kids. No one took him away. He was sentenced, he did that himself. He did not think of his kids before committing crimes. I would rather work 2 jobs then make fast cash & be away from my kids. I would never want my kids to have to deal with the fact that I was a criminal. I don’t feel sorry for Yandy. She knew what she was getting into & continued to have kids with him.

    Regardless of the choses made to land MDC where he is, he cannot change the past, he can only move forward. He and Yandy are good together. I cannot wait until he gets out, be with his kids. That video was the best that he made for his daughter. I wish them nothing but happiness.
