If you believe repeat offender Gucci Mane, he’s quite the role model, mentoring younger prisoners and using his twelve months behind bars to work on his craft. Pop the hood for his words.
He tells the Associated Press, “I try to take a couple of these young guys under my wing and tell them what I’ve learned, because you can’t teach nobody if you don’t know anything.”
The rapper admits he’s adopted a new motto to live by: “Before I make an action, think about the consequences. … Any decision I make is a heavy decision. I got a lot of people who depend on me. Everything I do has so much weight on it.”
And Mane has found other productive uses for his time in prison: “Unfortunately I’ve been to jail a couple times. Anytime I come in it’s difficult to make music, write songs. This time, I have a peace within me. I’ve been so excited to get out. I’ve written about 50 to 60 songs.”
We guess a few months away from your drugs of choice would help anybody sound like they have some sense. But last time we checked, taking younger prisoners under your wing and teaching them some thangs was extra suspect.
How many of y’all are looking forward to some new songs about crack, the trap, Louis, hoes and ecstasy next year? Gucci!
