Gucci Mane Reportedly Arrested

From Jeremy Thomas at

More legal woes for Gucci…

Gucci Mane has been arrested after being accused of shoving a woman out of a moving vehicle. Mane was arrested while visiting his probation officer and jailed of misdemeanor charges of battery today.

The woman, who is thirty-six, alleges that Mane picked up the woman in Atlanta while in his car and she agreed to go out to breakfast, but Mane wanted to take her to a hotel. He offered the woman $150 but she declined, and when she asked to be taken back to the mall she was originally in front of, he shoved her out of the vehicle.

"There was some visible bodily harm, scrapes and contusions," said a spokesman for the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office.

For those of you that don't know, B.A (Bad Attitude) is a talented North London MC that is causing a stir on the underground. B.A started writing music at the age of eleven as a hobby, penning lyrics about his life and his experiences after being inspired by the likes of 2Pac, Biggie & The Heartless Crew. As his passion for music grew stronger B.A started writing down sixteen bar freestyles and then started spitting to crowds at school. The response was positive and everyone began to see the potential of an artist that could make noise in an era when Grime and UK Rap was starting to get signed by major labels.

It was at this time that B.A started to take his music very serious and he soon progressed to join the infamous G.S.M crew which led to him rocking the microphone on London radio stations such as Heat 96.6FM, Boostie FM and Axe FM. There was no doubting that B.A was making noise and it wasn't long before B.A started working with some of the UK's most respected names. His next move was to release the superb 'Bound 2 Blow' mixtape which featured Bashy, Chipmunk, DJ Ironik, Big Narstie and many more. This was the release that would solidify B.A as a name to look out for in the UK game.

After a short break to planning his next movements and building his own recording studio B.A is back with a ten track release entitled 'Talk About Me Volume One'. This is a free download release that UK Rap fans will cherish as it sees B.A on form alongside guests such as King Kash, Menace, S.K, Skeeze, Crow, Lil D as well as some killer production from various producers including well known Grime producer Viler Dee.  'Talk About Me Volume Two' is also due for release soon too and features B.A alongside Flirta D, Lady Leeshur, Blax, Jak Frost and many more. B.A isn't stopping there though. he is also getting ready to launch his brand new mixtape called 'Music Is My Wifey'. This is a release that will feature some killer tracks from one of North Weezy's favourite artists.

Check out these official B.A music videos.
