Gucci Mane was sentenced to 12 months in jail for probation violation during a scheduled court appearance yesterday, and according to his lawyer began serving his time immediately. According to MTV, in line with the terms of his sentence Gucci may be released from jail in six months.

Since then though, the rapper has arguably become one of the hottest MCs in hip-hop. With a feature on tracks from Omarion, Mario, and 50 Cent he not only conquered the underground with his mixtapes, but brought his sound to mainstream radio as well.
His aptly-titled album, The State vs. Radric Davis, will be his second studio release is set to hit stores on December 8th. The first single from the album, Wasted featuring Plies, is Gucci’s most successful single to date and is his first top 40 hit. The album will feature collaborations with Cam’ron, Lil Wayne, Waka Flocka, Nicki Minaj, Keyshia Cole, Rick Ross, and many more.
