Rapper Gucci Mane has been on his best behavior lately – in more ways than one.

On Sunday, Mane (real name Radric Davis) was released early from Fulton County jail in Atlanta for good conduct. He served three months of his six-month sentence, which was handed down in September for pushing a woman out of a moving vehicle (which equated to two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct and one count of disorderly conduct).

This stint was Mane's third time in jail and, as he said yesterday, it would not be repeated: "This is the last time I think I'll ever be in jail," Gucci told XXL Magazine. "I really feel that way."

This week, TMZ also unearthed legal documents showing that Mane has settled a custody dispute with Sheena Evans, mother of his four-year-old son. He will provide $2,026 each month – approximately 8 percent of his monthly income, according to the forms – and receive visitation rights.

Perhaps the positive karma will pay off: Mane’s joint album with V-Nasty, BAYTL, was released today.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
