Troubled rapper Gucci Mane is still locked up. That came as big news to local promoters and the hundreds of Gucci Mane fans who packed into Onyx strip club last night expecting to sip champagne with the "So Icey" rapper.
According to confidential sources, the club's promoters spent about 10 G's to ensure that Gucci would celebrate his newfound freedom at Onyx.
Other local nightclubs also lined up to sign Gucci Mane for club appearances this week. But Onyx's promoters found out along with everyone else that Gucci wasn't released from jail when he didn't show up at the club last night. Now all the nightclubs that booked Gucci Mane for appearances this week are out thousands of dollars in booking fees. I hear they are not happy.
Gucci's attorney, Ashutosh Joshi, claimed Gucci was supposed to be released from the Fulton County jail yesterday. But Gucci Mane remains in jail today, according to a rep from Fulton County Jail.
Gucci, real name Radric Davis, 31, was arrested and charged with assault after he pushed a woman out of his Hummer as it traveled down an Atlanta highway on Jan. 28.
MTV's RapFix blog learned that there was a hold on Gucci and that he would be sent to the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson, Georgia after he is released from the Fulton County Jail. The GDCP is where the criminally insane are sent for diagnostics and treatment. The prison also houses the state's execution chamber.
