Gucci Mane has been released from an Atlanta jail after serving six months for violating his probation on an assault charge.

The rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, was released early Wednesday (May 12). He went to jail just as his latest album, "The State vs. Radric Davis" - which features Keyshia Cole, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, Keri Hilson and Usher - was being released.

The rapper said he has launched a new label, 1017 Brick Squad Records, in affiliation with Asylum/Warner Brothers Records, and said he'll be recording with rapper Wacka Flocka Flame in the near future.

He said his new album, "The Appeal," is scheduled for a summer release and that he'll begin a nationwide tour in July to promote it.
