Last month, information leaked online that Gucci would reportedly be released from jail in March of 2016. However, 1017 Records’ official Instagram confirmed it was false. He was actually still scheduled for release in March of next year (2017).
There have been plenty of notable artists and producers who have been campaigning for Gucci’s release. Mike WiLL Made-It’s next project, Ransom 2, is dedicated to Gucci, where he’s promised to feature him in some capacity, even though the feds are trying to prevent it. At the same time, Gucci has kept his name relevant over the years by releasing albums and mixtapes at an alarming rate. As Drake once said on “Digital Dash”: “Gucci gets out, it’s a problem.”
