Gucci Mane is dead. At least that's what the Internet is saying. However the rapper didn't die. He's just the victim of an Internet death hoax. Despite being in jail, Gucci Mane is just fine.

Rumors started swirling that Gucci Mane died while in jail. Some came across reports that the rapper was found dead in his jail cell and that doctors suspected heart failure. Some reports say it was because of a drug overdose while others said it was due to "extensive sizzurp use." Neither is true.

It is true that Gucci Mane is in jail. He most recently pleaded guilty to gun possession and likely won't get out of jail until 2016. He has a long history involving crime. In 2012, he was arrested for hitting a man over the head with  champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub. In 2010, he was arrested in Atlanta for several traffic laws, but those charges were dismissed. In 2005, he was charged with the murder in the shooting death of a man but the charge was dropped due to a lack of evidence.

While he may be behind bars, Gucci Mane isn't dead and neither is his rap career. He will have a 3-piece album drop on June 17. The World War 3D series will include The Green Album with Young Thug, Migos with The Purple Album and The White Album with Peewee Longway. He also has two other projects in the works. Trap House 4 which will hit the streets on July 4 and Trap God 3 on September 13.

Mane hasn't addressed the rumors of his death, but he has tweeted several times since the reports came out.

Despite the rumor of his death being false, not everyone realized it as first. Many fans took to Twitter to mourn and question the loss of the rapper. Some examples of those tweets include:

"Wait is it true Gucci Mane died in jail?"
"I just read an article that said Gucci mane was found died in his cell this morning"
"Tell me Gucci Mane is not dead!"
"Damnnnnn RIP Gucci Mane"
