Gucci Mane was released from prison on Sunday (December 11th) after serving almost three months of his six-month sentence.
The Atlanta, Georgia rapper, who has been in and out of jail over the past few years, swore that it would be his last time behind bars. “This is the last time I think I’ll ever be in jail,” he told XXLMag.com. “I really feel that way.”
While incarcerated, Gucci had time to think about his past crimes and mistakes, giving him a newfound perspective on his freedom. “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.”
Gucci, who is releasing his new collaborative album BAYTL with V-Nasty, was originally locked up on September 13 after pleading guilty to two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct and one count of disorderly conduct.
