The day has finally come.
Legendary Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane has finally been released from prison!
The news broke when Gucci’s girlfriend, Keyshia Dior, posted a video on Snapchat holding hands with Guwop and a caption reading “reunited.” Various other inside sources have since confirmed his release.
Gucci Mane pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in May of 2014 and was sentenced to 39 months in prison. He served the majority of his time at a prison in Indiana before his release today.
He was originally scheduled for release this September, but good behavior may have played a role in him getting out early.
This is a developing story, we will have more news as it breaks.
UPDATE (3:39pm): TMZ has also confirmed the news and got an explanation as to how he was released 4 months early.
According to their report, his lawyer filed a motion months ago stating that Gucci had not received credit for previous time served.
He will be on house arrest for a few months, followed by probation.
