Gucci Mane Apologizes For Twitter Rant, Admits Addiction to Lean [Details]
Rucuss staffSeptember 22, 2013
Gucci Mane doesn’t want to gain anymore enemies.
After causing a firestorm on social media with his tweets earlier this month, Gucci has had a change of heart and apologized for his actions. The Brick Squad rapper needed to reach rock bottom before he was ready to make amends.
Gucci deleted his Twitter account after attacking his peers including Waka Flocka, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Ciara, Fantasia, and Keyshia Cole. A few days later, he almost had a fight with a man in Lenox Mall. Later, he was arrested and hospitalized for allegedly cussing out police while in possession of weed and a handgun.
Gucci is currently incarcerated for the charges mentioned above, but he’s been able to allegedly relay a positive message on Twitter.
“Woke up the other day out this hospital bed & I’m so embarrassed & ashamed of my behavior that was brought to my attention,”Gucci tweeted. “I just wanna man up right now & take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry & most of all my fans. I’m SORRY!”
Gucci claims his rant was fueled by his addiction to codeine.
“I’ve been drinking lean for 10 plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me,” he said. “I wanna be the first rapper to admit I’m addicted to lean & that shit ain’t no joke,” he continued. “I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse.”
Gucci explained that he will be going into rehab after he’s released from jail.
“I’m currently incarcerated but I will be going to rehab because I need help,” he admitted. “I wanna personally apologize to birdman ross & drake. Dem my niggas. I 100% regret my words & actions.”
He also thanked his fans for their support.
“I wanna thank everyone that has stood by me during this difficult time,” Gucci said. “Please keep me in your prayers. #GUWOP. Wrote sum new hard shit can’t wait to get out dis hell hole so y’all can hear dis shit.” Read some of Gucci’s rant below.
Let’s hope Gucci wrote this apology and not one of his handlers.
