After assaulting a man with a bottle, and then violating his probation, Gucci Mane has spent much of the past month or so of his life incarcerated in the DeKalb County jail. This much we know. But what we didn’t know is that he’s actually sharing his jail cell with another rapper who just so happens to be a very good friend of his.
As it turns out, rap newcomer Young Scooter — who frequently collaborates with Gucci Mane — was arrested and booked for his own probation violation on April 8th, and a source with connections to both rappers have revealed to MTV News that the two rappers are not only are housed in the same prison, but they’re actually living with each other in the same cell.
Young Scooter (real name: Kenneth Edward Bailey) is best known for the song “Colombia,” and he also released a 16-track mixtape with Gucci Mane (born: Radric Davis) back in February called “Free Bricks 2.”
It’s probably a coincidence, albeit a strange one, that Bailey and Davis ended up in a jail cell together … but based on their recent history of collaborations, fans of both artists can probably expect something musical to come out of this.
Who knows? Gucci and Scooter could be working on a “Free Bricks 3” right now as we speak.
