Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane was released from jail in DeKalb County, Georgia on yesterday (May 2). Gucci, born Radric Davis, had been behind bars for nearly three weeks following his arrest on April 13 for violating his probation. Drew Findling, Gucci’s attorney, confirmed that the probation violation stems from the March 25 incident at a nightclub in Atlanta where Gucci allegedly hit a soldier over the head with a champagne bottle who was seeking to an autograph.
The rapper has been charged with aggravated assault and is due in court later this month. Incidentally, after he turned himself over to the police on the assault charge and posted bail on April 12, he was released from Fulton County jail, only to be arrested the following day for probation violation.
In related news, Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci’s former associate and one time protégé, told “The Combat Jack Show” that he still has no interest in reconciling after the former friends’ began feuding earlier this year.
“I don’t think I’m going to see him in the streets, the sh*t I’m doing,” Waka said. “Mentor? Like, dude said, I ain’t going to go against him.”
Waka also dismissed any notion that Gucci helped mentor him in the business. “I feel like nobody helped me do sh*t,” Waka said adamantly. “Not my mama, not Gucci. My first album, Gucci ain’t even on it, period.”
“I don’t know what secret feelings that man got,” Waka added. “From my personal opinion, it gotta be jealousy or envy or something.”
The beef became public after several tweets were posted on Gucci Mane’s Twitter account back in early March disparaging Waka; who was asked if he believed Gucci’s story that his account was hacked.
“I guess God hacked it,” Waka replied sarcastically.
