Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane isn't going to be tweeting or beefing with anyone in the streets for a very long time, or at least six months, as reports claim he has been sentenced to time behind bars.
According to reports, Gucci received the bad news in an Atlanta courtroom 72 hours ago.
Things are going from bad to worse for rapper Gucci Mane, who recently opened up about his drug addiction and was arrested for carrying a gun and weed. Now, it looks as if Mane will be spending some time behind bars for probation violation. According to papers uncovered by WorldWrapFederation.com, the rapper was booked for probation violation on September 16, just two days after his arrest on September 14. He was sentenced this past Friday (September 27), receiving 183 days (six months) in jail. Beyond that, we don't have any further information, but it looks as if Gucci still has five open charges surrounding his recent arrest (three of them regarding the firearm, one of them for the drugs, and another for disorderly conduct). Gucci has announced plans to enter rehab once he's through with his legal troubles. (Exclaim)
The Atlanta hip-hop heavyweight recently hopped onto his Twitter page to openly apologize for going on a rant earlier in the month.

"I'm addicted to lean & that sh*t ain't no joke. I can barely remember all the things I've done & said. However there's no excuse. (Cont)" (Gucci Mane's Twitter)
