Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane is apologizing for firing shots at Nicki Minaj, Drake, Rick Ross, Birdman, Tyga and several other rappers in an epic Twitter rant earlier this month. Gucci, who is currently in jail, admitted on Sunday that he’s addicted to drugs, and that addiction may have led to his Internet meltdown.
“I’m so embarrassed and ashamed of my behavior that was brought to my attention. I just wanna man up right now and take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry and most of all, my fans. I’m SORRY!” the rapper tweeted over the weekend.
“I’ve been drinking lean for ten plus years and I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit I’m addicted to lean and that sh*t ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done and said. However there’s no excuse.”
Gucci was arrested last week on drug and weapon charges, so it’s unclear if he’s tweeting himself, or relaying the messages to someone who is posting his thoughts for him. The rapper added on Sunday that he’s going to get help for his addiction after he’s released.
“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.”
Gucci also tried to make nice with some of the people he insulted via Twitter, issuing a public apology to Drake, Birdman and Rick Ross. “Dem my n*ggas. I 100% regret my words & actions,” he finished.
