Gucci Mane Is A Free Man


Even as fellow famous incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne faces disciplinary action today at Rikers for violating prison rules regarding possession of unauthorized electronics, Atlanta’s Gucci Mane strolled out the front door of Georgia’s Fulton County Jail this morning, a free man. Outside the jail, he thanked his lawyers, his label, and his fans, saying “I have made some mistakes in my life that have hurt a lot of people who care about me. I have worked very hard to get past them, but those mistakes have brought me to where I am today, and they will not be repeated.” His bid on a parole violation lasted six months out of the original year he was sentenced to serve, and came at an awful moment, right on the verge of the release of his first major label LP. “I was forced to miss what should have been one of the proudest moments of my life,” Gucci said. “This is something that I will make sure never happens again.” [MTV]
