Gucci's getting off early.
Everything is coming up Guwop. Since he’s been released from prison, Gucci Mane can’t help but keep winning. He’s dropped several new albums and has another on the way. He has an autobiography dropping later this month, and now, his probation has been called off early.
According to The Fader, Gucci’s probation has been ended. He filed for early termination of his supervised release and the motion was unopposed. Judge Steve C Jones signed the documents ending his probation on August 23. The supervision will end on September 19. Gucci was originally released and sentenced to three years probation. He’s getting off two years early; his sentence ends on the day that he releases his new book.
If that wasn’t enough, he’s expected to marry his longtime partner Keyshia Ka’oir in what may be the most exclusive wedding of the year. The fall time wedding allegedly will only have 100 guests, including Drake, Rihanna, Migos, Pharrell Williams, Diddy, Rick Ross, and Solange. The invitations alone for the big day are enough to prove that Gucci, and his bank account, is doing A1. Guests invited to the wedding will be receiving a plated mirror booklet adorned with Swarovski crystals — its that serious.
Gucci Mane’s career has been a series of crazy highs and sudden lows. He’s been on top of the charts and charged with murder. He’s an inspiration to something like 70 percent of the current crop of young rappers, but that hasn’t stopped him from serving the occasional prison sentence.
Finally Working Out
For once, it looks like Gucci’s on the way up with no crashing down in sight. Skinny Mane’s new life looks somewhat permanent, if the marriage didn’t tip you off. He’s has taken stock of his life since being released and he seems to be in constant awe of what he sees.
“I come from very, very humble beginnings … we really ain’t have nothing. So for me to be where I’m at now, to be a multimillionaire and help other people be multimillionaires, I’m so proud,” he told NPR, before adding that he wants to inspire others with his story through projects like his book. “I hope my life is a testimony to show people that no matter what you go through … to pick yourself up and be resilient and keep on trucking.”
He shared with the New York Times that his stint in prison helped him overcome his drug addictions. He’s been living a sober life since his release.
Sober And Skinny
“In hindsight I see it for what it was: I was a drug addict,” he said. “I was naïve to the fact that I was numb. I can’t say I felt happy my last six, seven years in the music business. I was just numb. You told me that I was doing good or told me I was doing bad, you hated me or loved me, either which way I greeted with nonchalance. It was sincere nonchalance—like, I really didn’t care.”
But it’s clear that Guwop is over all that now and soon to be a fully free man. What do you think? Are you happy for Gucci? Let us know in the comments and don’t forget to SHARE this article.
