Gucci Mane’s bizarre behavior over the last few weeks have sparked widespread speculation about Atlanta rapper’s mental health and may have cost him friends in the music industry. But Gucci has offered an explanation for his antics, which have included several lengthy Twitter rants where he accused associations of dishonesty, dismissed media personalities and claimed to have had sex with several famous women.
Gucci tweeted from prison, explaining his behavior.
“Woke up the other day out this hospital bed & I’m so embarrassed & ashamed of my behavior that was brought to my attention,” Gucci tweeted. “I just wanna man up right now & take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry & most of all my fans. I’m SORRY.”
“I’ve been drinking lean for 10plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit I’m addicted to lean & that sh*t ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse,” he continued.
“I’m currently incarcerated but I will be going to rehab because I need help. I wanna thank everyone that has stood by me during this difficult time. Please keep me in your prayers. #GUWOP,” he added.
