Gucci Mane Shoots Music Video Fresh Out of Prison
"I have no time to waste," Gucci Mane told Hot 97 host Angie Martinez, calling into the New York City radio station only hours after his release from a Georgia prison. "Nonstop. Everything is just greenlight. Everything is on go!" On Gucci's list of things to do immediately after getting released from prison -- shoot a music video.
"I'm at the video shoot right now, and now I'm talking to Hot 97 -- what a day!" he said but failed to reveal what song the shoot was for. Since his release, Gucci has been on a full-fledged media tour kicking off with a press conference just after walking out of the Fulton County Jail doors. One of his first public performances will be Hot 97's annual Summer Jam concert which features other big names including Usher and Nicki Minaj.
"Ya'll have the best performers," Gucci said of the June 6 radio concert. "Everybody pulls off lots of stunts. I'm excited about it because it's my first time every doing it [in] New York so Imma bring so much energy out there." The Atlanta native also commented on squashing his beef with fellow hometown rapper, Young Jeezy noting that his focus is on unifying the region. "It's a new day for music in Atlanta," he said. "It's a new day for rap music period."
As previously reported Gucci was carted off to jail last November for a probation violation stemming from an assault charge in 2005. "I never planned to go to jail," Gucci told Martinez. "I don't think anybody plans for that, but I plan on not making no mistakes to take me away from my family or my fans." That said, Gucci plans to release his fourth studio album 'The Appeal' this summer and embark on a tour in July.
