Gucci Mane to Be Released From Prison in September
After rumored early release dates have made their rounds online, it appears that Gucci Mane will actually be coming home soon. He is slated to be released from prison in September.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website, Gucci, born Radric Davis, will be released from the United States Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana on September 20, 2016.
Last month, members of Brick Squad claimed that the "Icy" rapper was getting out in March, but the bureau reiterated that his release date was set for March of 2017.
Gucci has been in jail since September 2013 when he was arrested for carrying a loaded handgun and marijuana. In 2014, he reportedly struck a deal as a result of pleading guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Last summer, reports hit the Internet stating that Gucci would be released in July. Shortly thereafter, his lawyer, Drew Findling, told MTV News that the update was not true. Although Findling did not deny that Gucci may be granted an early release, he confirmed the rapper would not be coming home at that time. He chalked up the reports as a social media fabrication.
"I can't get into specifics, but we're in the midst of corresponding with the Bureau of Prisons," Findling said. "I'm trying to iron out a specific release date for him, but that I can tell you that is not his release date. There's nothing formal about that. It's a product of social media."
At the end of January, Mike WiLL Made-It revealed that Gucci would host his forthcoming project, Ransom 2. He later said that the Feds shut down his plans to contribute. However, he did reveal that the two will collaborate on Trap Tape upon his release.
Apparently, Gucci’s legal team has kept their word. A screenshot of the Federal Bureau of Prisons website showing Gucci Mane's release date can be seen below.
