1. On Tuesday, Gucci pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He’s expected to serve 39 months, about three years, for that charge — which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years — and to face a $250,000 fine.
Gucci Mane has been in an Atlanta jail since September 2013, when he cursed at cops while holding weed and a gun.
He’ll be officially sentenced for the firearm possession charge in July.
2. Gucci Mane’s remained active in music from behind bars.
In April, he released a collaborative mixtape with rising Atlanta rapper Young Thug. (Gucci Mane signed Young Thug to his boutique 1017 Brick Squad label in 2013, and has since negotiated rights over his career with an imprint of major label Atlantic.)
