(AllHipHop News) Earlier today at midnight, Gucci Mane (Radric Davis) was released from Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail after serving six months for parole violation.
Gucci Mane walked out and was greeted first by friend Shawty Lo before thanking a group of roughly 50 media and fans who congregated outside the jail.
The East Atlanta emcee then read a prepared statement where he took responsibility for his actions.
“I have made some mistakes in my life that have hurt a lot of people who care about me. I have worked very hard to get past them, but those mistakes have brought me to where I am today, and they will not be repeated,” Gucci stated. “These past six months have been a difficult time but fortunately I have learned a great deal from my experience. I was able to do a great deal of soul searching; I am coming back with a new attitude towards life.”
Gucci Mane’s prison term came right before the release of his biggest album in The State vs. Radric Davis, which debuted in Billboard’s Top 10. After previously telling a judge his issues stemmed from trying to live up to his Hip-Hop persona, Gucci Mane now vows that that his public image will be one that his fans and the Atlanta community can look to as a role model.
