NEW YORK (AP) - He confessed to a deadly New York shooting that had gone unsolved for 17 years, but rapper G. Dep has pleaded not guilty to murder in the case.

The rapper, whose hits include “Special Delivery,” entered his plea to murder and other charges Thursday.

Defendants generally plead not guilty early in their cases, even if they’ve confessed. G. Dep’s lawyer says he plans to analyze the rapper’s statements and other evidence to see what charges he believes fit the case.

The rapper surprised police by admitting last month to shooting John Henkel in October 1993. His lawyer says G. Dep seems ‘relieved’ by turning himself in.

G. Dep’s videos helped popularize a dance called the Harlem shake in the early 2000s. He was born Trevell Coleman.
