“Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satire news to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief,” it says.
Gucci Mane pleaded guilty on federal firearms charges, and he was sentenced to 39 months in prison.
According to CNN, he was facing as many as 20 years behind bars but he and prosecutors came to a deal in which he entered a guilty plea.
Atlantic Records also reportedly dropped him from the label.
“On September 12, 2013, Davis, who was a felon at the time, was found
in possession of a firearm,” said federal prosecutor’s news release, CNN reported.
“Then, just two days later, on September 14th, he again possessed a
firearm different from the earlier gun. On both occasions, Davis
displayed the loaded firearm, acted erratically, and made threats to
individuals, including police and his attorney.”
