In December of 2013, Gucci Mane (born Radric Davis) was charged with two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon. If convicted, the Atlanta rapper could face up to 20 years behind bars. According to Radar Online, Gucci is looking to avoid a trial by negotiating a plea deal with the government.

Radar obtained court documents that show Gucci’s lawyers have asked the judge in the case to postpone the scheduled court date because “all parties anticipate resolution without the need of a trial.”
The docs also read:
The parties believe they may have resolved this matter subject to certain approvals including a meeting with the Court. However, due to various schedule conflicts, counsel have been unable to finalize the matter and given defense counsels respective absence from the jurisdiction over the next week, will be unable to finalize the matter prior to the trial date.
Gucci was arrested last September after two separate incidents involving firearms. He allegedly threatened friends and police officers with a gun.
