Gucci Mane Talks Jail
His time behind bars forced him to wise up..
Rapper Gucci Manehas opened up about his time behind bars claiming that it had a positive impact on his life.
Gucci claimed that his six-month stay in jail for a parole violation opened his eyes to reality.
He told The LA Times: "I changed a lot in there. I know this is serious now and I have a lot to get off my chest. This 'Appeal' record is painful and gothic and epic, but it's the soundtrack of my past. 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."
