On Sept. 22, Gucci started to try to make amends for his horrendously offensive Twitter rant, revealing that he is totally ashamed and going through a very difficult time.
Gucci Mane may be the worst regarded star in hip-hop after slamming Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, Drake, and many more during a profane, unprovoked Twitter rant on Sept. 9 — now he’s trying to pick up the pieces.
Gucci Mane’s Apologetic Twitter Rant
The 33-year-old rapper surprisingly jumped back on Twitter on Sept. 22, claiming he was tweeting from jail and ready to make amends. Besides apologizing, Gucci also explained that his inexcusable actions were due to a debilitating addiction to lean, another word for sizzurp. To get the true feel of it, we’re going to run Gucci’s new — extremely peaceful and penitent — Twitter rant without interruption:
9:04 a.m. – Woke up the other day out this hospital bed & I’m so embarrassed & ashamed of my behavior that was brought to my attention.
9:05 a.m. – I just wanna man up right now & take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry & most of all my fans. I’m SORRY!
9:06 a.m. – I’ve been drinking lean for 10plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit.
9:08 a.m. – I’m addicted to lean & that shit ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse.
9:10 a.m. – I’m currently incarcerated but I will be going to rehab because I need help. I wanna thank everyone that has stood by me
9:11 a.m. – during this difficult time. Please keep me in your prayers. #GUWOP
9:31 a.m. – I wanna personally apologize to birdman ross & drake. Dem my n****s. I 100% regret my words & actions .
9:59 a.m. – Wrote sum new hard s**t can’t wait to get out dis hell hole so y’all can hear dis s**t.
10:04 a.m. – Keyshia Dior Kaoir I’m sorry. Please forgive me.
Gucci Mane: Will Nicki Minaj Forgive Him?
It’s hard to read those tweets and not feel bad for Gucci. Though the things he said — such as claiming that he paid Nicki $60 to have sex with him — were horrible, you get the impression that he was in a dark place when he let loose on Twitter.
Drug addiction — especially sizzurp abuse — is an extremely uphill battle, and while that doesn’t totally excuse Gucci from the things he did, it does cast a different, more sympathetic, light on him.
Nicki was one of the first victims to respond to Gucci’s attacks on Sept. 9 — it will be interesting now to see if she forgives him. What about you, HollywoodLifers? Do you forgive Gucci Mane? Let us know!
