Rapper Gucci Mane has pleaded guilty to a federal firearms charge today while in Atlanta, Ga. court.

According to the Associated Press, Gucci Mane (real name Radric Davis), entered a guilty plea to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon which could ultimately have a penalty of 10 years in jail and a fine of $25,000.

Prosecutors recommended Gucci serve three years and three months in prison, which would allow him a December 2016 release date.  He has been locked up since Sept. 2013.

In Sept. 2013, police found the rapper walking in Atlanta carrying a Taurus 45-caliber handgun with eight rounds of ammunition.  Two days later, a friend called police when he grew concerned about the rapper’s behavior.  Cops found Gucci around 1 a.m. and he soon became increasingly agitated with officers.  When he was arrested, authorities found a Glock 40-caliber handgun and 11 rounds of ammunition.
