Gucci Mane

is out of jail in time for the long weekend

5:15 PMWhen a rumor first crossed my desk that Gucci Mane was out of jail, I was stunned. Gucci’s relationship with the law is not one that typically keeps him a free man, so pardon us for not keeping track of his release dates. But forget all that, GUCCI HOME. According to TMZ, a judge let him out because of a mix-up on time already served. Something that only happens to Gucci.

There are people who look at him as the man with the ice cream tattoo on his face. Others who see him only as a guy who makes ratchet music from Atlanta. But to anyone really out here doing it for the culture, you understand that Gucci is the tree from which all branches grow when it comes to trap music. He has a tireless work ethic and has ushered so much young talent to the forefront in the South that it’s not absurd to compare him to Berry Gordy.

All that said, it’s time to rep Big Guwop.

You know you’re getting older when …

you realize Fresh Prince’s final episode was 20 years ago

The Undefeated

3:33 PM

Accept it. You’re old. Twenty years ago today, Hillary and Ashley were moving to New York. Carlton was moving east as well to start school at his father’s alma mater, Princeton. Uncle Phil, Aunt Viv and Nicky headed east to be closer to the rest of the family. Geoffrey, everyone’s favorite butler, gladly accepted his one-way ticket back to London.

But Will was still unsure what direction his life was headed in.

If anyone’s been living under a rock the past quarter century and doesn’t recognize the names, Friday marked the 20-year anniversary of the series finale of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Debates have raged for years about the two Aunt Vivs, the best episode or funniest character, but it’s impossible to deny the show’s legacy and staying power.

For what it’s worth, too, Will figured out life pretty quickly after everyone moved out. Less than two months later, he stumbled upon an acting gig in some movie called Independence Day. Sources say it performed marginally decent at the box office.
