R&B singer Trey Songz has weighed in on the problems fellow musician Gucci Mane is currently experiencing and explained why his next jail stint could be his last.
In Trey Songz’s opinion, Gucci has to rise above the legal issues and avoid putting himself behind bars.
“Nah,” Songz laughingly said when asked about if it’s safe to take advice from a fellow inmate. “I mean, the thing about Gucci is he’s a gangsta. He’ll figure it out either way. But Gucci’s done been locked up so many times, the next time he’s done for sure. Gucci, I love you to death, you my [pal], I love you, you can’t keep getting locked up. That’s not rich n*gga sh*t. That’s not rich n*gga. Rich n*ggas don’t keep getting locked up. That’s trap n*gga sh*t. You can’t be a trap n*gga forever. That’s all it comes down to. You feel me?” (TMZ)
Trey’s comments follow reports of an inmate trying to get Mane out of jail.
It’s like the prison version of “My Cousin Vinny” — a random inmate in South Carolina has just prepared legal docs to get Gucci Mane out of jail … and they’re hilarious. 51-year-old Jerry Lewis Dedrick — who’s currently locked up in a Williamsburg federal prison — has taken it upon himself to get Gucci off gun charges (without Gucci asking) filing a scribbled motion. To his credit, Dedrick has been spending a lot of time reading — not like he has other stuff to do — and claims he’s discovered the key to Gucci’s case. (TMZ)
Back in December, Gucci received bad news in court after being indicted on felony charges.
Rapper Gucci Mane was charged in federal court Tuesday with two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon after two September incidents during which he showed a gun and threatened police, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia. Reports at the time indicated that the “Lemonade” rhymer was arrested in Atlanta on September 14 after a friend flagged down police to say he was concerned about the rapper’s behavior. (CNN)
Mane found himself in handcuffs after a couple of September incidents.
Early Sept. 14, a man who said he was a friend of the rapper’s called police to say Davis was walking down the street behaving violently, according to a police report. When police arrived, Davis smelled strongly of marijuana, cursed at them, called them names and threatened to shoot them, the report says. Police arrested him on a disorderly conduct charge and found a clear baggie with what they believe was marijuana and a loaded .40-caliber Glock handgun, the report says. An ambulance was called, and Davis was sedated and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment. (ABC News)
