The rapper Gucci Mane, known around the Fulton County Courthouse as Radric Davis, ends his stint in a taxpayer-supported gated community tonight.
After pleading guilty to assault in 2005, he was sentenced last fall to a year in the clink for a probation violation (failing to fulfill some court-ordered community service.)
He’s leaving the Fulton County tonight and plans a midnight press conference.
My colleagues Kristi Swartz and Ryon Horne will be there to cover his release and press conference, so be sure to check ajc.com later on tonight.
Fans will be happy to know the slammer hasn’t held up Gucci’s career. His CD, “The State vs. Radric Davis,” came out Dec. 8. The album features Keyshia Cole, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, Keri Hilson and Usher.
A few months ago, he sent word to us through his reps that he is focusing on the future.
“I have accepted full responsibility for my actions, ” Gucci said in a statement. “I am remaining positive and want my fans to know that I am grateful for their loyalty and continued support.
