Mario Calls Gucci Mane's Prison Sentence A Setback

During an interview with radio personality Jenny Boom Boom, Mario said that though he hasn't personally spoken to Gucci Mane about the situation, the rapper's jail time is nothing more than a setback.

"It's definitely a setback, I mean, he's got a lot of great music out right now. He's been having a great run for himself. I don't care what you got going on, when you gotta sit for a year? It's a setback," said the singer. "I think he's still hungry, you know what I'm saying? He's still got a lot of work to do. Prayers go out to him though."

Gucci Mane has been sentenced to one year in jail as a result of not completing 600 hours of court-ordered community service stemming from a 2005 assault case, testing positive for illegal narcotics, and failing to get proper permission to travel as mandated by a judge. Last month, Gucci issued a statement accepting full responsibility for his actions, and saying that he is ready to "deal with what is front of [him] right now."

In related news, despite being in jail, Gucci called into DJ Drama's radio show last week and ending his long-running beef with fellow Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy.
