Hit Or Miss: Even during his battle with murder charges, the six months Gucci spent in jail in the middle of the last decade didn’t hurt his career. The success of his independent debut studio album Trap House put him all over the Billboard charts while serving time behind bars; his single “Icy” featuring Jeezy hit No. 23 on the U.S. Billboard Rap Charts and became a Southern staple for the genre. The album also ranked at No. 5 for U.S. Billboard Independent Albums and hit No. 101 on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts. Not bad numbers to reach from a jail cell.
