Rapper Gucci Mane (real name Radric Davis) is currently behind bars doing time for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Last year, the Atlanta rapper was sentenced to 39 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to a firearms charge.

Word on the curb is that Gucci will be released from prison in March of this year, according to his record label 1017 Records. The company made the announcement via their official Instagram account:

Apparently, someone at 1017 Records may have the dates wrong. We did a little digging and yes, Gucci Mane will be released from prison in March, but NOT this year. He’s set to be released on March 6, 2017. And here’s the proof from the federal prison locator site:

By the way, we noticed all of Gucci Mane's social media accounts have been deleted for some unknown reason. Maybe his accounts were just deactivated. Either way, the ATL rapper is nowhere to be found on social media...for now.
