Gucci Mane is home- no for real this time. After a few false starts, the “Freaky Gurl” rapper was freed from Fulton County Jail early Friday morning his lawyer confirmed for RapFix. During the 4th of July weekend reports swirled that the Atlanta-based rapper was released from a three-month jail stint stemming from a probation violation, but that was not so. “Procedural holdups” delayed Gucci’s release, but today all of the legal drama is seemingly behind him.
“Gucci was released about 4:30 this morning from Fulton County Jail,” the rapper’s attorney told RapFix. “The Georgia Department of Corrections finally removed the hold they had on him very late last night and then processing or so probably took another eight hours by the time he was out of jail.”
The “hold” that Gucci’s lawyer refers to is an order that stated once the rapper was released from Fulton County that he was to be transferred to Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson, Georgia. On Monday, Gucc’s lawyer Ashutosh Joshi told MTV News that he had an order from a Fulton County judge that would eventually remove the hold. It took a few days, but now Gucci Mane, who has now satisfied the conditions of his probation stemming from his 2005 aggravated assault case, is a free man.
First order of business is to party, after he tweeted “I’m back bitch gucci back bitch did u miss me or miss my raps bitch...” Gucci took to the social networking site to plug his welcome home party in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
