Gucci Mane has been released from jail early

According to TMZ, Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane has been released from prison four months earlier than expected. Mane was arrested in 2013 for possession of a firearm—a violation of his probation—and he took a plea deal that initially placed the date of his release in September. However, the TMZ report says that Mane’s lawyer filed a motion that his client “hadn’t received credit for previous time served,” and that evidently seems to have worked out in Mane’s favor. He’ll now be on house arrest “for a few months,” and after that he’ll be back on probation. Also, for people who care about love, TMZ also says that Mane’e girlfriend, Keyshia Ka’oir, posted a picture on Snapchat of two people holding hands behind the word “Reunited,” so it seems like the two of them are back together—unless it’s just a coincidentally touching social media post.

Anyway, given Mane’s house arrest, it’s unclear when he’ll be able to return to the rap game in earnest, but it probably won’t take long.
