Time off for good behavior? What part of the game is that?

I would never want to suggest that Gucci Mane is anything less than a complete and total badass, because we know for a fact that he killed one of Young Jeezy’s weed carriers, plus there’s that video of him coldcocking a broad for having the sheer balls to try to get onstage at one of his shows, but it’s still kinda lame that he’s getting out of prison after only six months, for good behavior. I’m not saying he should try to talk to the judge about spending any more time in the pokey than he already has. I’m just saying.

I’m always suspicious of rappers who go to jail and end up getting out way early, for good behavior, when you hear about regular people going to jail, and it’s the exact opposite. They start off with a relatively light sentence, then they have to stab somebody, probably to avoid becoming someone’s bitch, and the next thing you know they’re locked up for 20. I read an interview once with Maino where he was talking about how he went to jail when he was a kid, and he ended up staying there for like a decade or some shit, even though kids don’t usually get locked up that long, in part because he would get into altercation. Granted, I wouldn’t describe Maino as a normal dude. In interviews he comes off as a genuinely nice guy, but he looks scary as shit, and you always hear these stories about him randomly slapping the shit out of people.

Gucci Mane’s sentence was only 12 months. He may have been better off just doing the entire 12 months, even if it meant getting into a fight, or exposing himself to a female corrections officer (the offense I’d commit, if I were locked up and I needed to get some time added onto my sentence), just so there wouldn’t be any question as to whether or not his time behind bars counted for something. I mean, I’m sure any time spent away from your family, eating shit on a shingle, sharing showers with other dudes is just awful, even more so than blogging for a living, but the fact that Gucci Mane apparently didn’t do anything that would have caused him to have to serve the entire length of his sentence leads me to believe that his stint wasn’t sufficiently bad enough to boost his street cred. You’d think someone would have tried to beat him up, because he’s famous, or eff him in the a (ay!), because he seems kinda doughy and retarded. Plus, I read the other day how prisons are striking deals with these snack food companies where prisoners can order all kinds of nachos and pizza and shit. Dudes are coming out of prison chubbier than a motherfucker.

I read the other day that Gucci Mane started his own record label, from inside the joint, though I’m not sure what that means. I wouldn’t put any credence in reports that Gucci Mane started his own label on the outside, let alone in jail. It sounds like he may have just announced that he’s starting his own label, not unlike how Damon Dash just kinda announced that he’s resurrecting Roc-A-Fella Records. (Did you see where he said he’d consider signing Jay-Z? Roffle.) If that’s the case, I might have to start my own label this afternoon, as soon as I come up with a good enough name for it. Or maybe I’ll just resurrect the name of a great record label from the past. They don’t still put out shit on Sugar Hill Records, do they? Nah, that sounds kinda gay. Anyway, isn’t Gucci Mane already signed to Wonder Bros., making that Bugs Bunny money? What does he even need with his own record label. The thought that he might put out material by other artists is rendered moot by the fact that I’m at a loss for anyone who would sign to a label run by Gucci Mane. His album flopped, he goes to jail like once a year, he appears to always be high, and he’s got like umpteen pending lawsuits from promoters his MGMT ripped off. Even Ozone magazine had to run an expose on the shady nature of his business dealings. (Let that sink in for a bit.) If I had a choice between signing to a label run by Gucci Mane and a label run by Beetlejuice from the Howard Stern Show, I’d seriously have to consider Beetlejuice. He might not have a normal adult level of intelligence, but he’s got ambition.

    Gucci is a epic fail…maybe even the poster boy

    We always hear of gucci mane but nobody know someone who listen to him or midget fruity juiceman or Wacka flocka or wtv his name is

  • Gucci the Champ

    Gucci, bang-bang get’em! Bol, your post about wanting to stay in prison is some of the most uneducated shit you have typed. The reason why Gucci doesn’t get it in the ass is b/c he gets that respect and pays for security in that dump of a shit hole. That is what people with money do, they pay for protection dip-shit. I can’t wait for Gucci to release that party-party-party music and ride out music. Screw hating it’s 2010 Tubby!!!

    “Game’s R.E.D. Album moves back two weeks from its original June 15 date, Rap-Up.com has learned. The disc, featuring the singles “Shake,” “It Must Be Me,” and the Justin Timberlake collaboration “Ain’t No Doubt About It,” will now arrive on June 29. It had been scheduled to go up against Drake’s Thank Me Later.”

    if a rapper gets sent to bing, y’all always say it’s a marketing scheme to up their street cred. Now, when they get out, they shoulda volunteered to stay longer? That wouldn’t scream publicity stunt, blatantly?

    Welcome home, Gucci. While I’m not a huge fan, I know tons of hood niggas that cant wait for some new heat. Plus, I cant even front, when “beat it up” and “lemonade” come on, the volume gets all da way turnt up.

    • 619

      Exactly what I was thinkin’. Bol acts like Gucci is gonna volunteer to stay longer. Like when they tell him roll up he’s gonna say I’d rather not. I’m not a fan of Gucci, but he got a business to run. Bein’ locked is a waste of time.

  • LOL

    ME?

  • UncleTom

    Gucci doesnt need any more street cred, He got away with murder(literally) I usually like your posts considering you dont know shit about music or being a nigga in general. But if I was Gucci on like my third day home Id find you somewhere and punch you in the face son. for saying some ignorant shit like this Hows that for street cred

    • Joe Morgan jr.

      “I usually like your posts considering you dont know shit about music or being a nigga in general.” HA ! Thats fuc#ing funny. Whats even funnier is Bol would agree. “Ozone magazine had to run an expose on the shady nature of his business dealings. (Let that sink in for a bit.)” Thats almost as funny. After the State certifies and the media tells everyone. That your not allergic to catching bodies, cats tend to give you breating room in the bing.

    street cred aside
    gucci not the most talented whatsoever
    but you’re off
    this post is wack bol

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    it was sarcasim. he always writes with it. Good post. Its funny how they pimp the street cred.

  • Jerod

    This is why Gucci Mane was signed to Warner Bros. Watch a rapper spit the same flow about popping pills and, yeah, flipping bricks. And then watch him go to jail and lose everything. He’s been made an example of. Come up with something better or end up like Gucci.

  • 4mat

    Bol are you really that stupid?

    why the fuck do you think those trials cost so much to those rappers, the lawyers close everything and i mean EVERYTHING b4 their client goes to jail

    im shocked you only surprised about the
    good behavior part

  • http://www.madnews.biz Mad News

    All you people going in on Bol need to look up meaning of the word SARCASM!!!!!! Google it!

    Lord help us. It’s true what they say. The Americans really don’t recognise “IRONY” when they see it.

    Of course that nicca gonna get off for good behavior, he had the whole mod squad protecting his behind while he was in there; no need to even get into fights let the security handle that.

    And Bol, your post was funny as hell!
