Gucci Mane To Be Released From Jail This Weekend
Atlanta-based rapper Gucci Mane is looking to return home from county jail sometime this coming weekend after serving close to six months for a probation violation.
Gucci’s own imprint So Icey Records and management company Mizay Entertainment are preparing a “Welcome Home Weekend” bash at Metronome Studios where they will record a mixtape to celebrate. Sponsored by eModa.com, the party will include various ATL all-stars like Gucci affiliates OJ Da Juice Man and Nicki Minaj. DJ Holiday is on board to host the disc.
“What better way to come home than to connect with friends and colleagues you haven’t seen in a while, by going into the lab and recording all of the hits you’ve come up with while you’re away," Portia Kirkland, vice president of Marketing for Mizay/So Icey said in a statement. “Having great talent all in one room without the pen and the paper in the booth will make for a great homecoming and we’ll make sure Hood Affair Films will be there to capture it all.”
It is uncertain what day the rapper will be actually released from behind bars, but it is believed to be anytime between Friday, March 13th and Sunday March 15th.
As XXLMag.com previously reported, Gucci was sent to Fulton County Jail on September 12, 2008 for only completing 25 hours of a mandated 600 hours of community service stemming from a prior assault charge. A judge originally sentenced him to one year in prison for the violation along with two and a half years on probation and 600 more hours of community service. – Elan Mancini
