Gucci Mane is now a free man and his fans are going nuts over the news that the rapper got sprung from jail four months early. That means new music is on the way now that he’s no longer behind bars!
He’s free! Gucci Mane, 36, and his fans got an amazing surprise May 26 when he got released from a federal prison in Terre Haute, IN four months ahead of schedule. While the rapper still has to complete some home detention time before going on probation, his fans are completely losing their minds over his freedom!
Gucci’s been away for a long time following his Sept. 2013 arrest on charges of firearm possession by a convicted felon, disorderly conduct, carrying a concealed weapon, and marijuana possession, among others. The Feds took over the case and in May 2014, he copped a guilty plea on the first charge, avoiding a possible 20 year sentence, but he was sent to prison with a release date in late 2016.
So it is huge news that Gucci got sprung early, as a judge agreed to a months old motion that he hadn’t received credit for time served. We got our first hint that he was back in action when his girlfriend Keyshia Ka’oir posted an Snapchat pic of them holding hands with the word “reunited,” followed by an Instagram video of Gucci showing off his prison chiseled abs – which alone is a miracle! Fans immediately went berserk with the news that the rapper is finally a free man and planning to drop a mixtape called “Gucci Free” May 27 to celebrate his release.
