Gucci Mane facing property lien following prison release

Rapper Gucci Mane is facing a $73,000 (GBP50,000) property lien one day after he was released from prison.

The rapper, real name Radric Davis, was set free on Thursday (26May16) after spending almost two years behind bars. In May, 2014, he was ordered to serve 39 months for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The sentence was subsequently extended by three years after he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault following a separate attack on a fan at an Atlanta, Georgia nightclub in March, 2013.


Davis' legal troubles are not over as he begins a term of house arrest in Georgia - he is at risk of losing his home and other assets after failing to cover a $73,000 (GBP50,000) judgment over a missed concert at The Manor nightclub in Athens, Georgia in 2013.


The club's lawyers are now hoping Davis will make good on his debts following his release.


"It's the honorable thing to do," Marcus Boenig tells Bossip.com. "It's unfortunate that individuals make agreements with Mr. Davis and he doesn't keep his word."


Meanwhile, Gucci Mane is wasting no time getting back to work - on Friday (27May16), he released a new song, titled First Day Out Tha Feds, and he is planning to debut a new mixtape, titled Gucci Free on Friday evening.
