Gucci Mane Arrested Again, What's Going On With Rappers?

Gucci Mane

Six months after being released from the Fulton County jail in Atlanta for violating his parole, Gucci Mane has allegedly been arrested again for a myriad of traffic infractions after being restrained with pepper spray.

According to, Gucci Mane is charged with driving on the wrong side of the road, running a red light or stop sign, damage to government property, obstruction, no license and no proof of insurance, among other traffic-related charges, Atlanta Police spokesman Curtis Davenport told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The rapper was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for a medical check up and is expected to be moved back to the Fulton County jail.

This all begs the question -- what is wrong with our beloved rappers? First T.I., now Gucci. You have a chance to be great and to encourage/influence others to be great, yet this is what you do? I don't want to judge because no one knows what is going on with people individually, but, I am speaking as a fan of hip-hop and an advocate of seeing the genre move forward and for that we need the T.I.'s and the Gucci's to stay on point.

I reached out to the label for confirmation, but hadn't heard back at press time.
