Gucci Mane Releases Letter To Fans From Jail

(Radio.com) Gucci Mane's incarceration hasn't slowed down his prodigious output. In fact, it's sped it up, as his management clears out his endless vaults--and he's even writing letters now, too.

Now he's penned a letter from jail, posted by XXL, which thanks his fans for everything they've done for him and looks back over his storied decade-long career. First, he talks about his album Traphouse, which is now 10 years old.

"I dropped my 1st album Traphouse 10 years ago May 2005 I remember being proud and angry the day it was released. I was proud of the work I put in and the quality of the project but I was angry that someone had to be killed over a dispute about the rights to some of the contents of the album," he wrote. "10 years later I reflect on how that day impacted my life and my legacy and I am grateful for all the fans that supported me then and still support me now."

From there, it's all about the challenges the rapper has faced ever since, including, of course, his jail time. "Every challenge and obstacle in my life has helped me to become who I am today and provided me with the tests to display my resilience," he continued.

"I hope my life showed someone somewhere that if you endure the storm you will eventually get your chance to shine. I never give up and I have grown and learned so much and still am eager to learn more. I look forward to showing the world how much I have grown and getting out and helping my community. I have been blessed with the opportunity to be a recording artist and help others get their chance to be heard." Read more here.
