News: BREAKING: Gucci Mane Sent To Prison, Given 1 Year Behind Bars For Parole Violation
Thursday, Nov 12, 2009 5:25PM
Southern rapper Radric "Gucci Mane" Davis has reportedly been sentenced to one year in prison for violating the terms of his probation.
The "So Icey" rapper was given his sentence Thursday (November 12) afternoon.
Gucci Mane has been sent back to Fulton County Jail in Atlanta for probation violation. Sources close to the Atlanta rapper say Gucci attended a court hearing earlier today to determine whether or not he'd have to serve time for an unspecified infraction that violated the conditions of his probation. He was sentenced to 12 months, but could end up serving only six with good behavior. This doesn't mark the first time Gucci violates his probation. The rapper was sent to the same jail for only completing 25 out of a required 600 hours of community service in relation to a prior assault charge. (BET)
Gucci was ordered to serve one year in prison last year for violating terms of his probation.
Gucci was sent to prison after only serving 25 hours out of his mandated 600 hours of community service and testing positive for drugs at his last probation meeting. After serving his jail sentence, Gucci will still have two and half years of probation and 600 hours of community service to look forward to. (My Fox Atlanta)
Upon being released last March, Gucci treated fans to a "Welcome Back" Georgia concert.
Put together by radio station Hot 107.9, crowds of fans and supporters attended a "Welcome Back" concert for the "So Icey" rapper. "Yo Gucci," one of the concert hosts said to the rapper prior to his performance. "I mean, you gotta go in the right way, baby. They missed you, you gotta talk to 'em a little bit." Performing a variety of his hit songs, Gucci was also joined alongside Shawty Lo on-stage throughout his concert. (UNN)
He later described what his plans were upon leaving prison last spring.
"Straight to the studio and recorded four or five songs," Gucci said in an interview about being released. "Then I had a party later that night to get ready for, so that took up most of my day right there..."I'm working on [an album] now...I don't know when it's coming out. I'm only 30 percent done. No title yet. I'm trying to see where the music takes me and base the title on the music. I'm just going through a lot of new material." Gucci, OJ Da Juiceman and Cam'ron shoot the video for a "Make The Trap Say Aye" remix on Tuesday (March 7) in Atlanta. "Cam killed that verse," Gucci added. "He went in on that song. That was a great verse. Shout-out to Cam." (MTV)
No further details have been released as of now.
