Despite the reports, Gucci Mane will not be released from prison in July. Guwop’s lawyer Drew Findling said that the reports that the Atlanta rep will be released in July are far from true.
“We do not know where that rumor came from, so that’s just Internet and social media fabrication,” Findling told MTV News. “We have no idea where that release date came from because we’re still in the midst of resolving things with the Bureau of Prisons. There was some confusion on their part, about his release date. I can’t get into specifics, but we’re in the midst of corresponding with the Bureau of Prisons.”
Findling said is working hard to get Gucci back on the streets though.
“I’m trying to iron out a specific release date for him, but that I can tell you that is not his release date. There’s nothing formal about that. It’s a product of social media.”
Rumors began swirling that Gucci would be home soon when DJ Bankhead took to his Instagram and posted “JULY 11 MY HOMIE BACK IN THE STREETS SALUTE.”
Gucci has been behind bars for two years serving a three-year sentence for federal gun charges.
