Despite his recent incarceration, Gucci Mane is still proceeding with plans to release his new album The State vs. Radric Davis on December 8.
The album, his first on Asylum/Warner Bros. Records, includes the hit single “Spotlight” featuring Usher, plus collaborations with Keyshia Cole, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy Tell’em, Keri Hilson, and more.
The rapper, born Radric Davis, was sentenced to 12 months in Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail on November 12 due to a probation violation. He is eligible for release in six months or less. Gucci has issued the following statement in response to his legal troubles:
“I have accepted full responsibility for my actions and I am ready to deal with what is in front of me right now. 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.”
