Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame has come forward to address recent confusion he created by tweeting “Gucci Home”, despite his Ferrari Boyz partner still incarcerated serving out a six-month jail sentence.
According to Waka, he used the tweet to keep Gucci’s presence alive.
“[laughs] Eh man, you know I gotta just, excuse me, I gotta try to just keep Gucci relevant,” Waka said, defending his tweet. “Believe that sh*t. [Coming up], I just dropped a new mixtape — I got a new single out, ‘Round Of Applause’ featuring Drake, I got a new album about to drop. … I’m going hard man.” (HHN 24/7)
Speculation over Gucci Mane’s prison status came courtesy of the rapper’s protege.
And like that, Gucci Mane’s back being a free man, just as daylight saving time draws to a close and we get ready to change the clocks in two weeks. No official word yet but Waka Flocka’s tweet says most of what we need to know for the time being. “Gucci home.” If you’re keeping score at home, Gucci went in to jail nearly two months ago and was supposed to do six months. I’ll take a guess he’ll get a longer probation along with the fines and anger management courses that he must complete. (Smoking Section)
A few days ago, Gucci was issued a civil suit and denied a reduced sentence.
The bad news came in twos Friday for rapper Gucci Mane, aka Radric Davis, who learned he was being slapped with a civil suit minutes after a DeKalb County judge ruled against his attorney’s motion for reduced jail time. The woman identified Davis by theice cream cone tattoo on the rapper’s face. Her attorney, B.J. Bernstein, said Friday Davis needs to be held accountable. “He thinks the rules don’t apply to him,” she said. Davis’ attorneys, seeking to get his six-month jail sentence cut in half Friday, offered to have the 31-year-old MC stage a concert on behalf of the DeKalb County Battered Women’s Shelter. But DeKalb State Court Judge Eleanor Ross was not moved, saying. “I don’t think it would be appropriate to let him out just because he’s a rapper.” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Earlier in the day, reports emerged online explaining Gucci Mane’s intent to have his six-month sentence reduced.
Radric Davis, also known as rapper “Gucci Mane,” appeared in the State Court of DeKalb County hoping to reduce his sentence for pushing a woman out of his car on January 28, 2011. On September 13, 2011, Davis plead guilty to two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct, and disorderly conduct. The victim and her attorney, BJ Bernstein, was present in court and will have an announcement immediately following the proceedings. (CBS Atlanta)
