The hip hop world was shook in the best way possible yesterday when news spread that Gucci Mane is now a free man. His girlfriend Keyshia Ka’oir posted a bunch of Snapchat videos documenting the rapper’s release.
Gucci’s release was a surprise since it came more than 115 days earlier than expected. People are starting to wonder how the rapper got out so early, and his lawyer is here to set the record straight. Gucci’s lawyer, Drew Findling, revealed the reason for his client’s early discharge from Terre Haute (a high-security federal prison in Indiana):
“The reason for his release date is myself and my legal team took the position that he was not properly deemed and then credited for the time he was incarcerated while waiting for his case to go to court. We filed a series of motions after which being considered, the court signed an order in agreement with us. Bailor was sent to the Bureau of Prisons and his sentence was adjusted accordingly and he was released.”
The Gucci Mane fans were so excited that he was home it surprised Findling himself:
“The outpouring that I’ve been receiving from fans is insane from around the country; excited about [Gucci] being back and able to perform and record again.”
During his time in prison, Gucci has lost a bunch of weight and photos began to emerge. His lawyer also touches base on the rapper’s different look:
“He’s probably 50 pounds lighter. He’s fit and trim. He’s in incredible physical shape and excited about the next chapter in his life.”
