Gucci Mane is finally home. Sources close to the Atlanta rap veteran have confirmed to Complex that Gucci Mane has officially been released from prison after being locked up for two years. The news first broke on social media after Gucci's longtime girlfriend Keyshia Ka'oir posted photos of her and Gucci together again on Snapchat. It's currently unclear how Gucci was able to get out on Thursday because his original release date was scheduled for September.
In 2014, Gucci pleaded guilty to firearm possession and was sentenced to 39 months in prison. He served a majority of his time at a prison in Indiana before his release today. According to TMZ, Gucci will be on house arrest for a few months and then be on probation after that. Throughout his time in prison, Gucci and his team released plenty of music that he had in the vault, including both mixtapes and albums that were available on iTunes. The terms of Gucci's release are currently unknown, but it wouldn't surprise anyone if he immediately got back into the studio and started recording new music again.
Over the past few months, Gucci's team has shared news of a new tour for the Atlanta rapper in the coming months, but it's unclear when that will officially take place. A lot has changed since Gucci was first locked up, but there's little doubt that he'll make an immediate impact now that he's free. We'll continue to update this story as more details become available.
