Gucci Mane Violates Probation, Sentenced to a Year in Prison

DecemBURR is about to get even colder for Gucci Mane. The Southern rapper was arrested and sentenced to one year behind bars on Thursday (Nov. 12) for a probation violation.

The “Wasted” MC was handcuffed and immediately taken into custody, reports MTV News. He was sentenced to 12 months in prison, according to a label rep, and could be released in as soon as six months.

This is not Gucci’s first time in jail. He was released from prison in March of this year after serving six months for failing to complete 600 hours of community service.

The arrest comes at the height of his career. His first major album The State vs. Radric Davis is currently scheduled for a December 8 release, while his Usher-assisted single “Spotlight” is climbing the charts.
