In November of 2009, Gucci Mane was sentenced to 12-months in Georgia's Fulton County Jail for violating his parole mandates. Released in May of 2010, the rapper emerged hungrier and more focused than ever, releasing a slew of mixtapes (including the Diplo-helmed Free Gucci, The Burrrprint 2, and Jewelry Selection) while recording dozens of tracks and viral videos. "Unfortunately, my incarceration also came at a pivotal point in my career, just as my first major label album was dropping," said Gucci in at a press conference upon his release. "I was forced to miss what should have been one of the proudest moments of my life."

Since his release, Gucci Mane has maintained a whirlwind travelling schedule, reconnecting with fans and embracing new ones. This fall, he plans to continue his life on the road with appearances throughout the country. "I set out five years ago to be the #1 rapper in Hip-Hop. That journey continues with an even sharper focus." His tour schedule is as follows:
