Yesterday, we were surprised to see that Gucci Mane's usually-active twitter and Instagram accounts had been removed. There was no explanation as to why, but now we've received another piece to the puzzle.

GuWop's record label, 1017 Records, have taken to their official Instagram account to reveal that Gucci's expected release from prison will be in March 2016. As the Free Gucci countdown begins, Gucci's engineer, Sean Paine (whom we interviewed a few months back), has told Pigeons & Planes that the reason behind the deleted socials is so that Gucci can build anticipation towards his release and start fresh once he's out-- "resurface everything under the new Gucci brand."

Take a look at the 1017 Records post below. Are you excited?
