On Wednesday (Jan19), Gotti, born Mario Mims, told Fox 13, "I'm a entertainer, I'm in entertainment. I understand it, I know it's like it's a protocol of going through it, going through the courts and getting to this point where it gets dismissed… we're back to where we were at in the beginning."

Gotti also said he might've been targeted because he is a rapper and that there might be repercussions because he is a celebrity, but he is staying positive. "You can get through it. Stay focused, stay positive... put in hard work," he said.

Good for you, Gotti. Now, stay out of trouble.
