Atlanta's Rocko has stepped forward to speak out on estranged rap pal Gucci Mane in light of his now-infamous Twitter rant from earlier this month and confirmed the fellow Georgia rapper is going through a rough patch in life.
According to Rocko, he saw first-hand Gucci's condition after going out to meet him face-to-face following a series of controversial tweets.
"I mean, at the end of the day, man, pray for homie," Rocko said in an interview. "I pulled up, you know what I mean? That's what real men do. Real men address their issues head-first. Ain't no situation where I'm going to rough the man because I've been here, I'm here to stay. Rocko is officially in this city. Rocko is the people's champ -- at the end of the day, it ain't no persona for me. ... That was my ace, you know what I mean? When all that took place, I was in awe. I'm like, 'Whoa.' So I'm like, 'Nah, this ain't my homie.' So I pulled up, we had a conversation or whatever, but you know, homie's going through some things. I just ask everybody to pray for homie. Hopefully he'll be better - I ain't gonna hold no grudge." (Streetz 94.5)

"Woke up the other day out this hospital bed & I'm so embarrassed & ashamed of my behavior that was brought to my attention. (Cont)," he tweeted September 22.
"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! (Cont)"
"I've been drinking lean for 10plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit (cont)"
"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)
