News broke today that Gucci Mane has officially been released from jail.

TMZ reports that Gucci is a free man for the first time in three weeks since April 13. Gucci's lawyer indicates that the rapper was taken into police custody after he failed to show up to a court date stemming from the March 26 incident in which the Brick Squad 1017 impresario hit a club patron over the head with a champagne bottle.

Gucci Mane is due back in court later this month, as the case is still pending.

XXL last reported that Gucci was supposedly sharing a jail cell with fellow ATL rapper and collaborator Young Scooter. Scooter himself was incarcerated for violating the terms of his probation.
