Meek Mill will be out soon but the music industry will still miss another rapper even if Meek Milly comes out of jail.
Rapper Gucci Mane has accepted a plea deal on a firearms charge, and will now spend 39 months in prison.
The federal judge who delivered the sentence said that the 34-year-old rapper might have to limit his time on the road after completing his prison time, while also saying, “according to my nieces and nephews, you are quite cool.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Mane has served 11 months of the sentence already. If he chose to go to trial, rather than reach the plea agreement, he faced up to 10 years in prison.
In addition to the sentence, the rapper’s lawyer requested that Mane enter a drug rehabilitation program and stay on the West Coast, where he would not be influenced by his Atlanta associates.
“He understands he has some work ahead of him and his goal is to bring resolution to this case and get back to performing,” Mane’s lawyer, Drew Findling, said. “He doesn’t want anything to distract him. He wants to do anything to get back to the work place and the work place is the stage.”
