Gucci Mane (real name: Radrick Davis) hasn’t been seen around town much these days and it’s not because he’s out of town touring and doing shows.
According to Ozone Magazine, the rapper has been forcibly placed into rehab for 28 days!
Turns out Narcotics Anonymous isn’t so anonymous after all. An NA attendee tells OZONE that their regularly scheduled meeting last night was interrupted by a nearly hour-long standoff outside the facility at Riverwoods Psychiatric Center in Riverdale, GA (on the south side of Atlanta).
Reportedly, members of Gucci Mane’s entourage – including his manager and lawyer – pleaded with the rapper to get help, causing quite a scene outside the hospital. His lawyer constantly reminded him that rehabilitation was the only alternative to facing more jail time and ultimately Gucci relented, turning himself in for a 28-day program around 8 PM on October 14th.
I commend Gucci on acknowledging he has a problem. At least he realizes he can get help now instead of waiting on the authorities to force him, like some other rappers I know. Standing O!
