Follow me on twitter.com/bwycheGucci Mane has released his first official statement to XXLMag.com after being sentenced to a year in Fulton County Jail on Thursday (Nov. 12) for violating his parole.
“I have accepted full responsibility for my actions and I am ready to deal with what is in front of me right now,” explained the rapper, born Radric Davis. “Thankfully, my label is still moving forward with my album release so I will have plenty to look forward to when I get out. I am remaining positive and want my fans to know that I am grateful for their loyalty and continued support. I will get through this.”
The rapper’s attorney, Dwight Thomas, also spoke on the matter, offering his opinion on Gucci’s presence in the courtroom. “In court, Mr. Davis was extremely articulate and he was remorseful for his conduct,” revealed Thomas in a statement. “He was able to convince the courts that he was not deserving of the two year prison sentence he was facing.”
Gucci’s debut major album, The State vs. Radric Davis, is slated for a Dec. 8 release. The album will feature Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, Keri Hilson, Usher and others.
