Gucci Mane Sentenced to One Year In Prison for Probation Violation

Gucci Mane is back behind bars. According to MTV, the Atlanta rapper was sentenced to a year in prison for violating the terms of his probation earlier today (November 12).

The popular MC—whose appropriately titled album The State Vs. Radric Davis is set to drop on December 8—was handcuffed and taken into custody following a court appearance this afternoon. He will most likely only have to serve six months of his sentence, if he displays good behavior. As of press time it is unknown what terms Gucci failed to abide by to cause a judge to send him back to jail.

Gucci recently served a similar six-month stint behind bars last September after he failed to perform 600 hours of community service. During that time he earned his buzz in the streets, which led him to score several big name collaborations, including songs with the Black Eyed Peas, Mariah Carey and Mario, among others.

As previously reported, La Flare recently leaked a song off his upcoming disc addressing his beef with fellow Atlanta MC Young Jeezy.

      yup. I think the fact that Lil Boosie, Gucci Mane, and Lil Wayne all going to jail at the same time has to be some kind of new promotional to get people buying they next shit. It has to. Come on now, next were gonna be hearing Oj Da Spermbank going to jail again. Its kinda like ridiculous to hear but its true. watch. When these dudes get out everybody gonna bump they shit and buy they shit. Fuckin stupid!!!
