Networking Behind Bars: Gucci Mane Joins LinkedIn

Prison won't hold him back.

Published August 24, 2015

Gucci Mane isn't going to let a three-year prison sentence keep him from losing his business saavy. To stay on top of his brand, the rapper joined the No. 1 networking site on the Internet: LinkedIn.

He shared the link to his profile on Twitter with his first post pertaining to his upcoming film, titled The Sport — Yep, he's releasing a film from prison, as well. We've got to get on Gucci's level. The MC pointed out that the project will drop on Oct. 17 and asked fellow LinkedIn users to share their ideas on how to help it reach a wider audience. Of course, he ended the post like only he could.


"This is my tenth year in the industry and I am proud to be able to share my first ever movie that I executive produced and starred in on October 17th 2015," he wrote. "This is a great way to commemorate my ten year anniversary and I want my fans to experience this with me and help me think of the most daring and expansive way possible to bring this film to the world. I want cutting edge ideas nothing is too risky, I love the unorthodox. Burrr."

If you'd like to connect with Gucci on the site, you're just a click away.
