Gucci Mane Reveals How Stint In Jail Changed His Life And His Music

​ ​ ​ ​

 

Gucci Mane gave a revealing interview to MTV News discussing how his last prison stint really changed his outlook on life and the hip-hop game.  Find out what Gucci said when you go inside...

Fresh from doing a six-month prison bid stemming from a parole violation, Gucci Mane is speaking very openly about his last prison bid as he promotes his latest album The Appeal.  

Saying the obviously difficult circumstances of his prison stint affected his new music, Gucci revealed, "I changed a lot in there.  I know this is serious now and I have a lot to get off my chest. This record is painful and gothic and epic, but it's the soundtrack of my past."

He continued, "It's my last five months recorded of my life. My take on things, my principles, my morals. That's all it is. I just spoke it on 15 tracks, so I think people are gonna love it. If they ain't got it, they need to get it, or they'll hear about it." 
 

Although he did prior stints in prison (both 2006 and 2009) this last bid seems to have left a lasting impression. Speaking on the U.S. penal system, Gucci offered his reason why so many rappers end up in jail:

"(Prison) is a real problem in hip-hop — it's a struggle to let that culture go. You can't let the ideology of the street get you in trouble.  I just wish I didn't have to go to jail to learn that. But sometimes we have to sacrifice and be responsible."

Gucci says it was hard having to come back to the same lifestyle that got him in trouble but he seems to be managing it well.  "It's strange to go from being locked up to a month later everyone saying, 'Gucci, let's party!  But I lost so much in there that I came out with a much sharper focus," he said.

Well it's good to see someone who obviously got a lesson out of their situation and isn't just using it to get more street cred.  What a refreshing change.

Oh dear GOD, somebody has

Oh dear GOD, somebody has allowed this fool to speak? My question is this, why is there a video on Youtube showing Gucci Mane beating the hell out of a woman and there is no backlash for it? MTV can't get enough of talking about a certain someone and beating a b*+ches @ss but this punk it says nothing about? Oh I guess that's why they never said a word about serial wife beater Eminem. Okay beat on gentlemen
