Rapper Gucci Mane, has come clean about his recent twitter rant where he falsely spread lies about  having sex, and threesomes with a few notable women in the industry [ie: Nicki Minaj, Monica, Fantasia, Kelly Rowland, ex girlfriend Keyshia Dior ] In case you missed it, You catch up the tea on that story by clicking here.

Just a few short days after his rant, Gucci Mane was spotted in Lenoxx Hill Mall in Atlanta, Georgia attempting to engage in a fight with another unknown male, and later that week, the rapper was arrested after a friend called police to report Gucci Mane’s stange behavior. As for the end result, Gucci Mane was arrested, he resigned himself from twitter, and was sent to a mental facility for evaluation .

Well, Gucci Mane has resurfaced on social media but this time it was to apologize to his fans and industry peers. Gucci owned up to his wrong doings, and is now asking for forgiveness.   Here’s his tweets.

While I applaud Gucci Mane and or his publicists reps for bringing light to the real issue at hand, its important that we as a people continue this conversation. Lean, “Sizzurp” [ whatever you want to call it] has taken the hip hop industry by storm.

While some may think that this ‘alcohol medicated  induced drink addiction is just a southern rapper’s phenom [thanks to Lil Wayne’s bold admission for taking the popular drink] it has expanded and other rappers are doing just the same.  The underlying issue here is that this particular drink is ‘harmful‘ and has some extreme side effects including death.

In addition, this speaks volumes to the manic depression that artist succumb to when they are no longer in the spotlight of fame and fortune.  I wonder what can do we as a community in addressing this issue so that are youth are not impacted .

In the meantime, lets hope that Gucci Mane gets the help that he desperately needs.
