Virgil Tab, Jr., better known by his stage name Turk (sometimes "Young Turk" or "Lil Turk"), is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana.[1]. He is best known for his time with Cash Money Records and with the Hot Boys. His debut album "Young & Thuggin'" became a Top 10 hit on the Billboard 200 and pushed his album to gold sales in the United States.

In 2003, Turk later signed with producer KENOEs' Laboratory Recordz, who released his last four albums. In 2005, Turk was convicted on Federal charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, a fugitive from justice in possession of a firearm, and an unlawful user addicted to a controlled substance in possession of a firearm. The charges arose from the shooting of a Tennessee police officer in early 2004. He was sentenced to 120 months of incarceration.[2] In 2006, he entered an Alford plea in Tennessee state court to second-degree attempted murder, based on the same incident, and was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment.[3]
