Gucci Mane was released early from prison after serving a federal gun sentence, it has been reported.

The 36-year-old Atlanta rapper, born Radric Davis, was slated for release from prison in September, but got an early release after his attorney filed a series of motions claiming that he hadn’t received credit for previous time he had served.

He was imprisoned in the Federal Correctional Institution in Terre Haute, Indiana. Two years ago, he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault for attacking a man at a nightclub in Atlanta.

Drew Findling, his lawyer, told the Guardian: “The original computation didn’t give him that credit. We had to file a series of motions. Ultimately, the judge signed an order acknowledging he was entitled to that credit. Then the bureau of prison immediately gave him that credit.”

Findling said Gucci Mane lost around 50 pounds while in prison, AP reported.

He added: “He’s trimmed. He’s fit. He’s very excited to go back to his life’s calling, which is being a recording artist.”

TMZ first broke the story of his release. The website reported that he was released Thursday morning.

The rapper took to Twitter, saying he is out of prison.

Gucci Mane also announced he’s releasing new music.
