Vanko 1, a Bulgarian hip-hop star who is now in jail for forcing women into prostitution, is back in the music business.

Fellow rap idol Misho Shamara has included the prisoner's vocals in a recent hit compilation, the music company said in a press release.

The song "Stop Breathing" is the first one to feature Vanko 1 since his conviction last year.

The performer, his father and his cousin were found guilty of running a women trafficking network.

But Vanko 1, born with the name Ivan Glavchev, insists that he was not guilty.
