Gucci Mane is indeed coming home from prison this year, Guwop’s Bricksquad 1017 confirms.
Gucci’s team made the announcement via their 1017 label Instagram account.
“Guwop get out in march 2016,” the caption on the post read.
Young Thug’s videographer, Be El Be, recently told his Twitter followers that Guwop will be released from prison in March.
“Thing is Gucci gets out in March… So y’all might as well add 3 more of those projects
“Wonder if Gucci will put out a project with all of the artists he helped put on. Thug Longway Dolph Migos,” he wrote on Twitter.
This isn’t first time Gucci Mane’s rumored release spread around social media.
Lil Bank Head, DJ for Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5, announced in June that Gucci was going to be released from prison in July.
“JULY 11 MY HOMIE BACK IN THE STREETS SALUTE,” the caption on one IG post read.
Guwop’s attorney Drew Findling, however, told MTV News the Atlanta rapper’s July 11 release date rumor was completely false.
“We do not know where that rumor came from, so that’s just Internet and social media fabrication,” Findling told MTV News. “We have no idea where that release date came from because we’re still in the midst of resolving things with the Bureau of Prisons. There was some confusion on their part, about his release date.”
Findling reportedly didn’t completely rule out the possibility that Gucci could be granted an early release from his three-year sentence, but he emphasized that nothing has been finalized.
“I can’t get into specifics, but we’re in the midst of corresponding with the Bureau of Prisons,” he added. “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.”
Gucci told fans in early December he’d be out “sooner than later” after photo surfaced on his IG showing himself with a thin frame and full facial hair.
“…I get out sooner than later hurry n catch the wave….. #Guwop,” the caption on the post read.
Gucci Mane, whose birth name is Radric Davis, was sentenced to 39 months in prison in August 2014, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Guwop pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in May. The 35-year-old Bricksquad 1017 boss reportedly reached a plea deal with prosecutors to serve three years and three months in prison. He faced a maximum of 10 years in jail after being arrested on two counts of felony gun possession.
The “I Heard” rapper was arrested Friday, Sept. 14, 2013 after authorities found him in an erratic state with a Glock 40-caliber handgun and 11 rounds of ammunition, according to court documents obtained by AJC. Davis was discovered two days before on Sept. 12 with a Taurus 45-caliber handgun and eight rounds of ammunition.
