Terrific Rapper Gucci Mane Free At Last

Gucci Mane is a free man.

After nearly three years in a federal prison on gun and drug charges, the iconic Atlanta rapper was officially released, according to multiple sources. He had most recently been held in a federal penitentiary in Indiana after pleading guilty in May 2014, receiving a 39-month sentence. He was arrested Sept. 13, 2013, after a bizarre multi-day Twitter tirade that took aim at several members of the hip-hop community and music industry at large.

According to Gucci’s lawyer, Drew Findling, several months ago Findling and Gucci’s legal team filed a motion to reduce the rapper’s jail time by approximately six months, and Gucci was accordingly released this morning. He will be held in home confinement for a short period, after which he will immediately transition to supervised release, the federal version of probation. In the meantime, Gucci is back in Georgia and will return to being a recording artist, Findling says.

While behind bars, Gucci — widely regarded as one of the most influential Atlanta rappers of the last decade, if not hip-hop as a whole — didn’t stay idle, releasing more than a dozen mixtapes from prison and collaborating with the likes of Migos, Young Thug, Rich the Kid and Peewee Longway, among many others. The common “Free Gucci!” or “Free Guwop” (one of his myriad nicknames) catchphrase has popped up in a slew of hip-hop songs in the past few years

    The idiot has a tattoo of an ice cream cone on his face. There is nothing else I need to know about this person.
