Rapper Gucci Mane will walk free from prison next week after serving seven months of his one-year sentence.
The troubled hip-hop star, real name Radric Davis, was locked up last November after violating the terms of his probation for a 2005 assault conviction. However, he is counting down his final days at Georgia's Fulton County Jail and will be released next Wednesday, according to good friend and New York DJ Angie Martinez.
Nonetheless, the rapper's legal problems will be far from over - he and his business partners are currently embroiled in two separate lawsuits over concert no-shows.
The news of his release came as Martinez announced Mane would be part of the line-up for this summer's Hot 97 Summer Jam concert, which takes place in New Jersey on June 6th. Other artists also scheduled to perform at the annual event include Usher, Ludacris, Drake and Fabolous.
