The rapper was denied a chance at a sentence reduction when a DeKalb County judge ruled against his attorney’s motion. To make matters worse, Gucci was hit with a civil by a woman he pushed her from a moving vehicle when she refused his offer of $150 to go to a hotel.
“He thinks the rules don’t apply to him,” said the woman’s attorney, B.J. Bernstein. She told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that she wants Gucci to be held accountable for his actions.
“He pushed a woman out of a moving Hummer,” she said. “Sometimes jail is not enough for some people and some people who have celebrity and the one thing that scares them more than anything else is to go after them civilly.”
Gucci’s attorney offered to have the rapper give a free performance at the DeKalb County Battered Women’s Shelter, but the judge in the case wasn’t having it.
“I don’t think it would be appropriate to let him out just because he’s a rapper,” DeKalb State Court Judge Eleanor Ross said.
Welcome the new signing to Curren$y’s Jet Life Recordings, Harlem rapper Smoke DZA.
Announced through Twitter early Wednesday (October 26), Curren$y (@Currensy_Spitta) wrote: “Well its late, but not to late to pop a bottle for @smokedza joining the set… J.L.R… Now to turn this bus into a celebration station.”
Curren$y and Smoke DZA have worked (and, no doubt, smoked) together numerous times, most recently on “Personal Party” from DZA’s Rolling Stoned project, which was released this summer. The pair also shared the stage during this year’s Smokers Club Tour.
Now, they will work together regularly as labelmates.
Curren$y, who was signed to Master P’s No Limit Records and Lil Wayne’s Cash Money label early on in his career, has seen a resurgence in popularity in the last few years, and looks to capitalize through his own Jet Life Recordings imprint.
Curren$y is gearing up to release a Jet Life compilation called Jet World Order featuring Jet members Young Roddy and Trademark Da Skydiver.
Jet World Order is due out on November 29th.
Check out a short clip below where Young Roddy & Trademark speak briefly about the upcoming project.
Model turned rapper Lola Monroe announced that she is the First Lady Of Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang.
“We got it in with Taylor Gang. We Taylored now,” Lola said during an interview with Atlanta’s V-103.
“Wiz is like a positive free individual that’s about his business and that matches everything I’ve created on my side.”
“When he reached out, he was like, ‘I feel as though our movements represent the same thing, so I want you to rep Taylor Gang.’”
“And I agreed, so it’s only right. Plus, out of all the situations that came to me, my business instincts and just the comfort level, I felt it was just the right move with him. He’s a stand-up dude and it just felt right.”
Monroe is preparing to drop two new mixtapes; one of which will be hosted by DJ Ill Will.
