Apparently, a judge bought Gucci's story and he was ordered into custody where he's awaiting an evaluation. The rapper -- born Radric Davis -- may be able to avoid spending 17 months in jail if he's found to be mentally incompetent.
Gucci is also set to appear at a hearing on Jan. 24 in Fulton County Superior Court. Gucci is said to be working on his fourth studio album, 'The State vs. Radric Davis 2: The Verdict,' which is scheduled for release this year. If convicted, this will mark the second time the rapper had to release a project while behind bars. Unfortunately, he won't be the first rapper to do so, especially in recent years. In 2010 alone, T.I. released his 'No Mercy' LP while serving time for violating probation and Lil Wayne dropped his chart-topping 'I Am Not a Human Being' while serving out his sentence.
