Gucci Mane looks forward to life after year in jail

Rapper Gucci Mane, known around the Fulton County courthouse as Radric Davis, will be spending some time in the slammer. After pleading guilty to assault in 2005, he was sentenced earlier this month to a year in the clink for a probation violation – failing to fulfill his court-ordered community service. As the AJC reported, he was arrested last week in Atlanta.

In a curious bit of timing his new CD, “The State vs Radric Davis,” comes out Dec. 8. The album, put out byAsylum/Warner Bros. Records, features Keyshia Cole, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, Keri Hilson and Usher.

“I have accepted full responsibility for my actions and I am ready to deal with what is in front of me right now,” Mane said in a statement. “Thankfully, my label is still moving forward with my album release so I will have plenty to look forward to when I get out. I am remaining positive and want my fans to know that I am grateful for their loyalty and continued support. I will get through this.”

So talented, afforded opportunities most would kill for and is about to squander it all. Gucci, i’m a fan, but remember Beanie(how he got dropped)….keep going to jail and getting in trouble and that label is going to drop your azz….it’s inevitable! Nobody is worth that trouble young blood, so PLEASE don’t make them show your azz…FOCUS MAN! You’ve worked too hard……….
