Gucci Mane Will Not be Released From Jail in March
A rep from Gucci's label, 1017 Records, announced the disappointing news through their Instagram page. "So Gucci Mane NOT release on march #F---12 #FreeGucci," read a caption next to a photo of Mane in court. Another post, which showed Mane face down in pavement with his hands tied behind his back, simply said "#F---12 #FreeGucci."
Afterwards the label encouraged fans to share their Gucci inspired artwork. Responses included tattoos and references to pop culture.
In one, the "Peepin" rapper is strapped with two guns as he stands behind Samuel L. Jackson's character, Jules Winnfield, in a scene from Pulp Fiction. In another, he takes the place of Kylo Ren in the Star Wars The Force Awakens poster. After President Obama delivered his final State of the Union address on Tuesday (Jan. 12), a photo with a faux subtitle of President Obama stating "We must now tackle the issue of freeing Gucci" was especially good.
Gucci's incarceration hasn't stopped him from releasing music though. Since he was arrested in 2013, he's released at least 15 albums, two EPs and over a dozen mixtapes.
Although the news may have set the trap star back since he deleted all of his social media accounts to start anew upon his release. Gucci “wants to wait until he gets out to build anticipation and resurface everything under the new Gucci brand,” said Mane's producer, Sean Paine, in an interview with Hot New Hip Hop.
Now, it seems fans will have to wait a little longer to see what Gucci Mane has up his sleeve.
