Rising Atlanta Rapper Gucci Mane Accused Of Murder

Rising Atlanta, Georgia

rapper Gucci Mane is expected to surrender to Atlanta authorities today to answer

an alleged murder charge.

Sources told AllHipHop.com that, Gucci Mane (real name Radric

Davis) was involved in an altercation with five attackers last Tuesday in Decatur,


The rapper is riding the waves of his hit single "So Icy"

and, at the time, was making press rounds promoting his album Trap House,

which is slated to hit stores next Tuesday (May 24).

Reports stated that the incident may have occurred on Tuesday

May 10. But, about a day after taping BET's Rap City, he was forced to turn

himself in to Georgia authorities.

While details are sketchy, sources stated that the rapper may

have been in the area to visit a female acquaintance when he was accosted by

the five men.

On Friday May 13, officials reportedly discovered a corpse near

Columbia High School in Decatur, Georgia.

After an investigation, an arrest warrant was issued for Davis.

"Big Cat Records informed Davis who responded with full

cooperation and immediately returned to Atlanta, postponing further promotional

engagements," a Big Cat Records representative said in a statement released

to AllHipHop.com.

The rapper was recently involved in a war of words with Atlanta

rapper, Young Jeezy, after the two collaborated on various songs.

The two released a series of diss records and while the two

were verbally feuding, sources stated Jeezy appeared on local Atlanta radio

denying any connection to the incident.
