(AllHipHop News) Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane is back on the streets after being released from prison yesterday (December 13).

Gucci Mane’s freedom comes on the heels of his recently released collaboration album BAYTL with female rapper V-Nasty, which landed in stores on Tuesday.
Wu-Tang Clan and Odd Future are headlining the 7th annual Paid Dues festival this year at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino California. The annual festival, which is organized by rapper Murs and Guerilla Union, will feature a number of the top Hip-Hop acts from around the country, in addition to the headlining acts. “I am honored this year to have two of the most impactful Hip-Hop collectives in history headline this year’s Paid Dues,” noted festival founder and independent Hip-Hop pioneer Murs. “Wu-Tang entered the game in the early 90’s and changed everything. And Odd Future has already made an enormous impression in their own right and just a few years in. To have these two dynamic forces on the same stage on the same night is almost unimaginable but only right that it take place at Paid Dues. This and so much more to be announced in the upcoming weeks has me really looking forward to our 7th year of Paid Dues.” Paid Dues will take place Saturday, April 7, 2011. More details will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets will be available to the general public starting Saturday, December 17 at 10am PST.
