The rapper pleaded guilty to the possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Gucci Mane will serve more than three years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal firearms charge today (14th May). The rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, was found to have a gun on the 12th September last year before being caught with a different gun two days later and behaving "erratically" on both occasions.

"On September 12, 2013, Davis, who was a felon at the time, was found in possession of a firearm," a federal prosecutor's news release said, via CNN. "Then, just two days later, on September 14th, he again possessed a firearm different from the earlier gun. On both occasions, Davis displayed the loaded firearm, acted erratically, and made threats to individuals, including police and his attorney."

Mane's Twitter rant - did he claim to sleep with you?
Perhaps the danger of the instant access to fans Twitter bestows upon oneself has never been realized before now. Gucci Mane crystalizes that danger; his tirade against anything and anyone reached the masses, and offended a few people on the way.
Gucci Mane claims to ahve bedded a fair few musical contemporaries
He could, of course, have been hacked. In the bizarre string of Tweets, Gucci Mane made his feelings about Eminem and Drake known, revealed a sexual encounter between himself and Nicki Minaj and told Atlantic Records – apparently his erstwhile employers – to “suck” his “d***”.
Minaj was left to dismiss claims made by Gucci Mane by herself after the rapper posted a deluded rant on his Twitter stating that he had sexual relations with her and a bevy of other women
Nicki Minaj has suggested that Southern rapper Gucci Mane should seek help in rehab after he embarked on a Twitter rant on Monday, 9 September, alleging that he had slept with her and a number of other famed beauties. The rapper had started his Twitter rampage by taking aim at his label, Atlantic - who may have dropped the star - and soon moved on to stating that he had had sexual relations with Minaj and R&B beauty Ciara, among others.
Gucci may have been dropped by his label, Atlantic
Gucci used the micro-blogging site to lash out at his label bosses at Atlantic Records as well as name check a number of stars, including Drake and Waka Flocka Flame, whilst also boasting about his supposed sexual escapades with Minaj and Ciara. Both he and Minaj have since deleted their tweets, however they didn't have time to delete them without anyone taking full notice and keeping record of what each person said. The rapper claimed that he made it with the 'Starships' singer more than once, and not on his own either, as he boasted of his probably false exploits.
The rapper didn't specify when the track will be released, but hopefully it'll be soon
Marilyn Manson, as you might imagine, doesn't keep the most conventional of company, but the fact that he is good friends with trap-rap star Gucci Mane just seems that little bit out of the blue that we're still struggling to come to terms with it. What's more, it turns out that the singer and rapper have hooked up on a song together, with the pair expected to bring the most unlikely of collaborations to the fore this summer.
Gucci told The Fader earlier today (May 31) that he and Manson hooked up after the Los Angeles premiere of the new movie Spring Breakers on March 14, with the two artists recording their track in the studio until 6am. The rapper then went on to mention how the pair first met and how they each share an interest in each others work. Gucci said, "We got the dopest record in the world, me and Marilyn. Me and him got one of the craziest records ever made. We made it whatever day Spring Breakers came out in Cali. He came to the sneak premiere, and after we did the red carpet and watched the movie, me and him went to the studio and made us a record. That’s the day that we met and began being friends."
For those of you who still might be doubting the unlikely friendship, earlier this month the rapper Instagrammed a photo of the rocker wearing a 'Free Gucci' tank top, and also went on to discuss how he introduced the singer to songwriter Kevin McCall and has been keeping the singer in mind for another potential link-up whilst he records his new album.
The 17-year-old rapper spent the night in jail on a charge of disorderly conduct.
Rapper Chief Keef was in and out of custody on Monday (May 20) night, with the 'I Don't Like' MC getting put away by cops for disorderly conduct whilst in Dunwoody, Georgia. He was released a while after and understandably so he wasn't best pleased about the whole situation.
Keef was down in Georgia with fellow rapper Gucci Mane to film the visuals for Gucci's next single 'Darker'. The track was released earlier this month around the same time Gucci announced that he was signing the 17-year old rapper up to his Bricksquad 1017 recording crew. The filming proceedings must have gotten a little out of had though because the young rap protegé ended up in police custody by the end of the second day of shooting.

Star out of prison then back in again
Gucci Mane isn’t having a good time of it with the law if WSBTV and TMZ are to believe, with the rapper turned movie star in trouble with the law twice in just under a week. Oops.
Aye, Gucci Mane may well be appearing in Spring Breakers, a crime thriller that’s been selected for the 69th Venice International Film Festival amidst good reaction from the movie industry, but he seems unable to distance himself from the law in real life. So the first incident occurred on April 9th when Mane was indicted on one count of aggravated assault, and the second saw him put back behind bars for violating his parole. The latest from TMZ is that the parole arrest is for something completely unrelated to the first incident. He’s a busy boy when it comes to illegal ne’er do wellings isn’t he?
Some comedy Reddit user has posted a picture of Mane in court – it’s definitely fake we reckon – and have written that when he was asked if he was guilty for the offence of aggravated assault, he supposedly replied “Bitch I might be!” It’s most likely it’s fake, given it features the Fox news tool bar and there’s no way they’d feature the word ‘bitch’ on it. Still, it makes for an amusing pic.

Arthouse filmmaker Harmony Korine (Mister Lonely) comes dangerously close to making a mainstream movie with this blackly comical thriller. While the film is often very funny, and constantly challenges our preconceptions by veering in directions we don't expect, it's also an intriguing exploration of America's hedonistic subculture.
Gomez and Hudgens also crush their Disney princess images as Faith and Candy, who decide they want to go to Florida for spring break with their pals Brit and Cotty (Benson and Korine). But they've spent all their cash on drugs, so they rob a restaurant and head to the beach. After indulging in a series of raucous parties, they end up in jail and are bailed out by a sleazy rapper-gangster who calls himself Alien (Franco). He takes them under his wing, getting them involved in his war with a dangerous cross-town rival (Mane).
The film is shot in lurid colours, with the girls wearing little more than fluorescent bikinis, sometimes accompanied with pink balaclavas. And the score by Skrillex and Cliff Martinez is visceral and hugely atmospheric, adding unexpected texture to the way Korine explores physicality, drugs and violence. It's also quite deliberate that, apart from the religiously minded Faith, these young women kind of blur together anonymously, like all the other bikini babes at the various beer-chugging, arms-in-the-air parties.

Gucci Mane arrested for attacking a fan.
Gucci Mane, in a nightclub, with a champagne bottle – sounds almost like a game of Cluedo, but it isn’t. The rapper, real name Radric Davis, was arrested in Atlanta Georgia, after he allegedly assaulted a soldier, who was looking to take a photo with him. The incident occurred on March 16th, while the rapper was out at an Atlanta nightclub.
There’s a bit of a redeeming aspect to the story though, as the rapper turned himself in to the police. The attack seems completely unprovoked, judging from the reports so far. The victim commented that he hadn’t expected the rapper to be so violent. “I’m in the military. I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane, is it OK?” the soldier told WSBTV he had asked a security guard. This then prompted the rapper to strike him in the head with a champagne bottle, causing “a severe laceration on the top of the man’s head” according to a report of the incident, obtained by ABC.
According to the police report, Gucci Mane then left in a white Chevy Tahoe, while the soldier, identified as James Lettley, was taken to hospital, where he received ten stitches. Mane was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon.

Gucci Mane is in trouble for alleged assault
Rapper Gucci Mane – real name Radric Davis - has a warrant for his arrest, following an allegation that the rapper hit a soldier in the head with a champagne bottle. The army man spoke to Atlanta’s WSBTV about the incident.
“I'm in the military. I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane, is it OK?" said James, his second name wasn’t divulged. "I was speaking to the security guard, and Gucci Mane hit me in the head with a bottle." Gucci Mane was at the club promoting his new mix tape, and the authorities have confirmed the story. "We do have an active warrant for Mr. Davis for aggravated assault," Atlanta Police Department Lieutenant Jeff Cantin said. "So I'm sure after he sees this, I'm sure he'll want to reach out and contact us." James says he is suffering from concussion after the ‘assault’. "He could have possibly killed me. I just hope and pray that I recover pretty well because I still want to serve my military career," James added.
