Rapper Gucci Mane
has refused to give up on his career while he serves a 12-month prison sentence - he is masterminding the release of his new album from behind bars.
The hip-hop star - real name Radric Davis - was freed from the Atlanta County Jail in Georgia in March after serving six months for breaking the rules of his probation, relating to previous charges of assault and drug possession. He was ordered back to jail earlier this month on another count of parole violation.
He has now spoken out to shoulder the blame - but reassures fans that his sentence will not affect the release of his next album, The State Vs. Radric Davis
, scheduled to hit shelves in December.
He says, "I have accepted full responsibility for my actions and I am ready to deal with what is in front of me right now."
"Thankfully, my label is still moving forward with my album release so I will have plenty to look forward to when I get out. I am remaining positive and want my fans to know that I am grateful for their loyalty and continued support. I will get through this."
