Gucci Mane in jail in Atlanta

Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane is in a Fulton County jail for a probation violation. Guess this wasn’t the ’spotlight’ he and Usher are singing about in their new single − or maybe it is. Gucci was expected to drop a new CD Dec. 8.

We were just talking about him last month when he was at the BET Hip-Hop Awards performing a surprising three songs. His track popularity was definitely on the rise.

According to our AJC colleagues, the rapper, who’s real name is Radric Davis, is currently at the Fulton County jail and is due to be released in May 2010, according to jail officials.

It is unclear how Davis violated his probation. It’s also unclear how his legal troubles will affect his album release and future projects.

BTW: For our hip-hop purists, Gucci was reportedly born in Birmingham and moved to Atlanta in the 4th grade. So he is not a “native” Atlantan but he is an Atlantan.

That snagga-tooth, pot belly, lisping dude is the WORST! He is the only person I can think of who always looks dusty and greasy at the same time! He can’t rhyme. He makes any decent song WORSE. My face stayed screwed-up when I watched the BET Hip Hop awards. No re-runs for me!
