Gucci Mane is heading to rehab for an addiction to lean, or syrup, the rapper announced on Twitter. "Woke up the other day out this hospital bed & I'm so embarrassed & ashamed of my behavior that was brought to my attention," began his series of tweets, referencing an incoherent and expletive-laced Twitter rant he posted earlier this month. "I just wanna man up right now & take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry & most of all my fans. I'm SORRY!"

He continues, "I've been drinking lean for 10plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit I'm addicted to lean & that shit ain't no joke. I can barely remember all the things I've done & said. However there's no excuse."  

"I'm currently incarcerated but I will be going to rehab because I need help," he reveals. "I wanna thank everyone that has stood by me during this difficult time. Please keep me in your prayers."

The Atlanta rapper had a special apology for Birdman, Rick Ross and Drake. "I wanna personally apologize to birdman ross & drake. Dem my n*****. I 100% regret my words & actions."


Sounds like Gucci hit rock bottom but is working his way back to the top. In fact, the rapper ended his Twitter confessions with a promise that he'll be back. "Wrote sum new hard s*** can't wait to get out dis hell hole so y'all can hear dis s***."
