Today is Gucci Mane’s birthday!
The Birmingham, Ala.-born, Atlanta-raised rapper debuted in 2005 with Trap House and his Southern-style rap made a splash in the industry. Gucci followed up his debut success with Hard to Kill in 2006 and then Trap-A-Thon and Back to the Trap House in 2007.
With a plethora solo albums under his belt and a plethora of mixtapes, Gucci Mane has made it known that he is here to stay. He released “I’m up,” a new mixtape, in 2012, which has a number of guest performances from rappers such as Meek Mill, Future and Waka Flocka Flame.
2013 was a roller-coaster year for Gucci; he released five projects, got into an ugly, three-day Twitter meltdown, is seeking millions from Waka Flocka Flame, Waka’s mother and Gucci’s former manager Deb Antney, and is currently in jail on gun charges. Here’s to a better 2014!
