Recapping Gucci Mane's incredible 12 months since he was freed from prison.

“This has been the best year of my life,” Gucci Mane said in a recent interview with Zane Lowe. “It has been a hell of an experience, you know. And I just feel like the best way for me to celebrate is to celebrate with my fans that supported me all while I was gone. The fans who supported me the whole year I been back."

It truly has been a remarkable 12 months for Gucci. Since getting out of prison last May, he's gotten engaged, released eight projects, collaborated with Kanye West, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Travis Scott... and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

“You know when you sit down in a prison for three years it gives you time to think and just reflect on your whole life,” he said. “And I feel like my life had got so out of control because everything that I was doing to lead up to it led to that ultimate collapse. So now I feel like when I got in there I started kinda like making an effort to say ‘hey listen, my life is going in a better direction.’ I started doing the things that I make, that you see now come to fruition.”
