Jailed in December for allegedly assaulting a SeaWorld haunted house employee, PyRexx is back. The Houston-based Christian rapper’s case has been dismissed after he spent 30 days behind bars.

A friend of his recorded the first moments after his release in the following video.

While in the Harris County Jail, where PyRexx wrote an open letter to Rapzilla to explain what led to his arrest, PyRexx missed spending Christmas with his family and the birth of his new adopted son.

PyRexx’s mentor Tre9 recorded a video below of PyRexx responding to the incident on the night of his release. In the video, PyRexx apologized for what he did at SeaWorld, thanked everyone who supported him and his family while he was locked up and pleaded with gang members to leave the street life. He also shared lessons he learned.

“I sure won’t be in any haunted houses,” he said. “I won’t put myself in an environment like that anymore. I’ve done many, many, many years incarcerated, and people jumping at me, that type of stuff, I shouldn’t have put myself in that position. And I’m a believer, so I shouldn’t be in that realm from the jump anyway.

“And on top of that, what I learned is how quickly my freedom can be taken away by my past, and the things that I’ve committed, and the things that I’ve done, and my life. … These tattoos on my face, these five felonies I have, it does haunt me.”

Watch the full video below. Tre9 told Rapzilla that he hired PyRexx as the director of his ministry Disciple the Streets on Friday.
