It appears that prison has only strengthened Gucci Mane’s purpose. In a letter recently acquired by MTV, the imprisoned TrapGod made some prophetic claims about his career and his life as a free man. In addition to walking red carpets with his lady, getting healthy and staying sober, Mane has gone on to say that his future work and his career will reach new highs with his album sales going on to “sell movies, books, clothing, and be a living testimony to all people showing that you can start from humble beginnings and transcend to something greater.” Gucci is currently serving a 39-month sentence for a federal gun charge but received a dip in time remaining due to time served, making his sentence now 28 months from September. Read the letter in its entirety here.
My idea is to take my career to the next level. I am planning to take my music to a higher level and use the attention and influence to sell movies, books, clothing and be a living testimony to all people showing that you can start from humble beginnings and transcend to something greater.
It feels great to see my plan take root and begin to blossom even though I’m physically incarcerated but spiritually and mentally I’m free as ever. I enjoy working out molding my body and I look forward to changing my diet for the better because I realize to get to the status I crave I must make a life-change which is permanent not a quick-fix.
I can see myself now at the top of my game, me and my beautiful lady walking the red carpet at the best parties and getting flooded with accolades at the award shows and setting trends that will be copied around the world. This is not a dream though this is a plan that I will affect directly. I know that by me stayin sober, praying and fasting and stepping up to the plate to the father, and man I am destined to be I will impact my family and the entire universe for the better.
