Gucci Mane Protégé Foogiano Jail Sentence
While the details are still coming together, reports claim Foo is set to remain in jail for five years. The drama stems from a March arrest after being on the run from authorities in Tennessee. Music executive Boomman went to social media to deliver the crushing news.
“Green County Just Gave @FoogianoDaMayor 5 years for cutting an ankle monitor for a gun charge that wasn’t his and was claimed by some one else this is beyond crazy 😥 we have to do something about this!”
Foo’s social media pages have seemingly confirmed the news and started a “Free Foo” movement.

The March 2021 Arrest
In March 2021, Foo found himself in handcuffs after being wanted in Georgia following a $50,000 December 2020 bond. He was charged with violating a probation stemming from a firearms charge.
U.S. Marshals in Tennessee have arrested Georgia rapper Foogiano, who was wanted for nearly three months after violating his probation by melting off his court-ordered ankle monitor and disappearing, according to authorities. The rapper (real name: Kwame Khalil Brown) was arrested by a U.S. Marshal’s Office task force Thursday in Memphis on a fugitive from justice warrant, The Athens Banner-Herald reported Monday (March 15), citing Memphis police.
