Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame raised eyebrows Friday (October 21) by revealing a tweet saying incarcerated artist Gucci Mane was released from jail, however, court documents tell a different story.
According to court documents, Gucci is still behind bars on a battery conviction.
UPDATE #2: Contrary to Waka Flocka Flame’s tweet last night, Gucci Mane is still behind bars, according to court records. He is currently without a release date.

Speculation over Gucci Mane’s prison status came courtesy of the rapper’s protege Waka Flocka.
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 agoand 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)
Gucci’s close friend/producer DJ Holiday recently hit up SOHH and shared his take on the legal situation.
“It’s never a good feeling, man,” Holiday told SOHH. “You never wanna see your friends put in jail — but Gucci’s a strong dude. It’s not like he hasn’t been in the situation before. It’s unfortunate, but at the same time the system’s wack, man. I don’t know exactly all the details of it, but he’s my friend and I got files and files of music on him that people ain’t never heard so it’s nothing for me to get a call from him to put [more] music out.” (SOHH)
Around mid-September, Gucci pleaded guilty to an assault charge and was sentenced to six months behind bars.
The Atlanta-based rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, was arrested in April for the January incident and charged with two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct and one count of disorderly conduct. In addition to the jail sentence, Davis was sentenced by a DeKalb County Court judge to 30 months’ probation and ordered to pay a $3,000 fine. He must also attend a 12-week anger management course, refrain from contacting his victim and pay her medical bills, totaling more than $5,000. He was being held Tuesday in DeKalb County Jail.
