Radric Davis aka Gucci Mane was to hit mainstream rap hard last year but that became a distant memory when he was incarcerated. We have yet to get a statement from Gucci since he got locked up but for the first time in a recent interview with the Associated Press Gucci Mane speaks from jail. Gucci Mane talk about how he has been adjusting to jail. He celebrated his 30th birthday in Febuary and his album "The State vs. Radric Davis" hitting the number #1 spot on the rap charts all while being locked up late last year for parole violation. Gucci spoke on his future plans and where his career is going later this year. Gucci will be releaseing two albums, "The State vs. Radric Davis: The Appeal" and then "The State vs. Radric Davis: The Verdict" and a mixtape with DJ Drama later this year.

How did it feel to finally breakthrough?Gucci Mane: It felt good to finally be noticed and get some kind of acclaim. This is by far the most praise I've ever gotten. It feels like all my hard work is getting recognized. It makes me work even harder.AP: How did it feel to have your album top the charts while in jail?Gucci Mane: Excited. I still had a release party, though I wasn't there. But the day after was the toughest because I just wanted to get out there to see my fans. ... Getting on stage, it's nothing like it.AP: Gucci, you've been to jail on a few other occasions. How can you avoid being sent back again?Gucci Mane: 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.AP: How do the other inmates treat you in jail?Gucci Mane: It's a great response. ... So 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.AP: Rappers who have been jailed in the past like Tupac has said it was difficult to jot down lyrics while in prison. How has writing songs been for you?Gucci Mane: 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.AP: How much has your jail time been a setback on your career, which was at the peak?Gucci Mane: With money and selling CDs, I can always do that. I believe I can make all the money I've missed the last six months. But I can't regain the time with fans and family.FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER @ITSTHESOCIETY
