After causing ruckus on Twitter and being checked into a hospital, Gucci Mane returned today to ask for forgiveness and reveal his battle with drugs.

“Woke up the other day out this hospital bed & I’m so embarrassed & ashamed of my behavior that was brought to my attention,” he tweeted. The rapper blamed his recent harsh words on fellow rappers and the music industry to his addiction to syrup or “lean.”

“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 sh– ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse,” he said.

 

He continued, “I’m currently incarcerated but I will be going to rehab because I need help. I wanna thank everyone that has stood by me” and then went on to ask forgiveness from Birdman, Rick Ross and Drake. “I wanna personally apologize to birdman ross & drake. Dem my n—-s. I 100% regret my words & actions.”

Gucci explains that he’s currently incarcerated but will seek drug rehab soon. “I’m currently incarcerated but I will be going to rehab because I need help. I wanna thank everyone that has stood by me during this difficult time. Please keep me in your prayers. #GUWOP.”

Waka Flocka, who Gucci has been publicly beefing with for months, didn’t get an apology by name though.
