The Dirty can exclusively reveal Gucci Mane pleaded with a federal court judge to let him leave the country – to perform a series of concerts in Europe – and the rapper pointed out in his plea that he has turned his life around since prison.
Back in 2014, the rapper was sentenced to 39 months in prison for possessing a firearm despite being on probation. Gucci was ordered to pay restitution, submit to random drug tests while on probation and participate in a drug/alcohol program along with serve 3 years’ probation once he was released.
Last year, the rapper finally was let out of prison 4 months early. He is still subject to random drug tests and checks in with a P.O.
Then on March 15th, Gucci headed back to court pleading with the judge to allow him to leave the country. He explains he is a successful rap artist and has worked tirelessly to regain his career after his prison time.
He currently has offers to perform in Europe between June 29th and July 15th … including stops in Denmark, the Netherlands, France, Germany and Switzerland. Gucci handed over all the contracts to his probation officer, who didn’t object to the trip.
Gucci pointed out he has shown and continues to show he has turned his life around in every respect. The judge agreed with his argument and granted the rapper’s motion to head to Europe this week.
