Gucci Mane has enjoyed writing poem since he was in elementary school but did not begin rapping until he was 14. In 2005, he released an indie album "Trap House" which featured "Icy", a successful duet with Young Jeezy. Despite the success of the song, the two didn't follow up their collaboration with another duet as they were involved in disputes over the rights to the single, which eventually caused a rift between the two artists.
In that same year, Gucci was charged with murder after one of her companions fired at a group of men who were trying to steal his trademark "So Icey" chain. He pleaded not guilty, reasoning only having a self defense. While the case, which was eventually dropped in January 2006 due to insufficient evidence, was still on investigation, he was hit by another legal issue, cited of assaulting a nightclub promoter and granted a six-month prison sentence for the assault. He was released from jail in the same month of his murder case was dismissed.
The 39-month sentence is a part of an agreement with prosecutors after he pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in May.READ MORE
