After his release from prison Sunday (December 11), the Atlanta rapper says he’s tired of going to jail and is confident that his latest penitentiary bid will be his last.
“This is the last time I think I’ll ever be in jail,” Gucci told XXLMag.com. “I really feel that way.”
For Gucci, who was given a six-month county jail sentence on September 13th after pleading guilty to two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct and one of disorderly conduct, his latest prison bid gave him time to reflect.
“It was a time for me to sit back and just refocus the whole way I do things, man,” Gucci said. “The times away from my fans just made me want to grind, get in the studio, go to my shows and appreciate my job and what I do now.”
So much so that Gucci says the very first thing he did after being discharged from prison was change his clothes and head right to the studio.
He’s already come out to plenty of reaction stemming from the BAYTL collaboration album he put together with Bay Area MC V-Nasty. “I think people are going to be surprised just how good the music sounds,” he said of the music. “A lot of people are going to be surprised.” –Mark Lelinwalla
