Published Jul 05, 2011Considering Gucci Mane has been locked up in a Georgia prison cell since April over a parole violation that saw him push a woman out of a moving vehicle, we haven't heard from the rapper in a while, but the hip-hop star has now revealed some more info about his Ferrari Boyz collaboration with Waka Flocka Flame.
While earlier this year, we pointed to the tag-team mixtape dropping June 21, fans have no doubt noticed that the release date has been pushed back. Mane has revealed that the recording will now be unleashed this August.
"We've got the Ferrari Boyz coming August 9," he recently told Hot 107.9's DJ Drama [via Hip Hop DX], before describing what we can expect from the pair.
"It's like a hood album. If you want to know what's going on in the urban community, if you want to know what's going on in the ghetto, if you want to know what's going on in the slums, you've gotta go get the Ferrari Boyz. Straight up... We really challenged each other and we brought the best out of each other. That's my little brother, man. We definitely brothers from different mothers. I love him."
In other news, the rapper was hoping to be released from Georgia's Fulton County jail today (July 5), but he may have to spend some more time in the clink. Speaking with MTV News, Mane's lawyer, Ashutosh Joshi, noted that the MC's release could be put on hold and that he might get sent to Jackson state prison.
"There is an order from a Fulton County judge requiring that Mr. Davis serve his time at a Fulton County jail," Joshi said. "So it is our hope and belief that once the county jail and the state prison are able to communicate -- which we understand is occurring today -- and once the state prison is aware of the judge's order, that they will remove or release any hold they have on Mr. Davis and he can be physically released from the Fulton County jail."
The judge and lawyers are currently waiting on a decision from the state. Regardless of how this plays out, Mane hopes this is his last run in with the law.
"I give y'all my word," he told DJ Drama. "It's too much for me. I can't keep going to jail, man. I can't keep doing it. I slipped up this time but no more slip-ups."
