Mane caught heat last weekend after being arrested on multiple charges.
Gucci Mane was arrested this morning for allegedly cussing out a couple of cops in Atlanta while in possession of weed and a gun … TMZ has learned. Gucci Mane — real name Radric Davis — was taken into custody at 12:05 am this morning after one of his friends complained to cops about his erratic behavior. According to the report — the friend waved down police to help out … but when they approached Gucci he began “cursing and threatening them.” We’re told he was immediately taken into custody and police found a small amount of marijuana on the 33-year old rapper … as well as a handgun.

Recently, Waka Flocka Flame said his success ultimately messed with Gucci’s ego and forced him to publicly lash out.
“He lived in my mom’s crib for two years, rent-free,” Waka said referring to Gucci. “When I started going on tours, when I started buying different cars, I’m not leasing nothing, I started buying different jewelry, your conversation changes. You can’t lie anymore, it’s facts. I guess that crawls underneath people’s skin and when I come around I get a little different attention than you. I be seeing that messes with his ego. But I ain’t think he was going to go to that level. Like cyberspace. You know? That’s crazy. … He ain’t trying to get rid of that little contract. I want him to eat though. I don’t want to be out here looking like a bum. … If I catch him, it’s going digital. I don’t want to kill him or nothing, I just want to slap him a couple of times, almost like a little big brother. Gucci lost his noodles, man. People just think he’s gangsta, he really needs medical attention. That guy lost his noodles, man. …” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Gucci allegedly jumped onto his Twitter page earlier this month and unloaded disses at nearly every prominent member of Lil Wayne‘s Young Money team.
“Waka on drake tour drake giving u 6k a show. U a hoe. Fly to iceland redo dem silver dull ass bsm chainz,” Gucci tweeted September 9.

“Nikki minaj can do a trick with her mouth ask waka?”
“Did I put nikki n 50 dollar room then let her move in. Then help her get an apartment im a fool 4 a bubble butt but I hate assshots fake Ho”
“Waka did video wit flo nikki tyga and chyna was there pregnant. Me n waka was laughing inside joke tell nikki call rocko I just took that”

Rather than keep quiet, Minaj fired back at Gucci over the sexual allegations.
“May God strike me dead if I ever had sex wit that man. Lmfaoooooooooo. Nigga da way ya #ugliness is set up ???????????????????????????? #BubbaGump #crackhead,” Nicki tweeted back.
Maybach Music Group’s Rick Ross recently said he hoped the ATL rapper would reach out to him personally if there were any real issues in light of him melting down on Twitter.
“You know, as far as, you know, if somebody needs some help, they need to get it. You know what I’m saying? As far as when you jump out there, when you jump off that porch, you jump. You know what I’m saying? Me and homie, we was always cool. We’ll see. I haven’t spoke to dog. At the end of the day, for one, I don’t move with that Twitter talk. I’m a $50 million dude. I don’t move by Twitter talk and all that. You know what I’m saying? Real dudes, they make up. Even if it’s a problem, they get on the line. You know, on Twitter, you’ll never see Rozay really jump off the porch with Twitter. Regardless, I’m not an emotional person like that.” (Hot 97)
