Gucci Mane Speaks from Behind Bars in March Issue of XXL

“I wasn’t really able to tell my story before but I think I am now…” Gucci Mane says from behind a glass window in a visiting room at Atlanta’s Fulton County Correctional Facility. “Got closure on a lot of things now.”

After years bubbling beneath the surface, Gucci was having the best year ever, racking up hit after hit and high profile co-signs, but that all came to a halt when the rising trap star was put behind bars for parole violation on November 12. Still, the Atlanta MC went on with business as usual, dropping his much-anticipated album, The State vs. Radric Davis, and giving XXL magazine an in-depth interview for the March issue.

Interviewed by XXL’s Editor-in-Chief, Vanessa Satten, Gucci shares his thoughts on his recent ascent into the hip-hop big leagues; his newfound popularity; and the first few hours back in the big house. He also discusses his longstanding beef with Young Jeezy, expresses remorse for the mistakes of his past and much more. Look for the full cover story with hip-hop’s next superstar in XXL’s upcoming March 2010 issue. Gucci’s Warner Bros. debut, The State vs. Radric Davis, is in stores now.

Other features in the blockbuster March issue are XXL’s look back at the Top 10 Freshmen MCs of the Decade—a collection of artists that debuted in the new millennium and went on to have the most impact during the past 10 years—profiles on Scott Storch and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. XXL also investigates whether or not going to jail helps or hurts an artist’s career, and highlights some of 2009’s best mixtapes. Also, 20 rappers interview Rakim, resulting in a one-of-a-kind dialogue with the living legend.

XXL’s March 2010 issue with Gucci Mane hit stands nationwide in February. In the mean time, stay tuned to XXLMag.com in the coming weeks for more exclusive excerpts and issue leaks.

      • Max 423 TN

        Joe p you are a typical liberal pussy always trying to tell others what to do with their money. Why dont you get off your ass and start working so you can donate your money or put it to a good use instead of complaining and bitching about other people. Gucci earned his money, it’s his money, he will spend it anyway he wants to. Who the fuck you think you are telling people whats wrong and whats right? Fuck off and get a job.

      • http://www.goldicecircuitry.com GIC

        Let me preface this by saying, I am not a Gucci fan by any means. His whole operation is whacked to me. In and out of jail, every time you turn around… Can’t really get with that.

        But, I think it’s a little presumptive to say that someone is a retard for not doing what you think they should be doing with their money. You shouldn’t make comments without the necessary facts to back up what you’re saying. Gucci is one of the most benevolent rappers – and there are many, that I know of. He does many, many things for the community on a local basis – in Atlanta. Charity starts at home, and spreads abroad, which is one of the most powerful ways to effectuate change – on the local level.

        He buys school supplies, from backpacks, to school clothes, to fresh haircuts, to sneakers, for kids to prepare for the school year without having to worry about their appearance, or what they don’t have. So many kids skip school to avoid getting made fun of, and this kind of benevolence allows the kids to focus on their education and not what they don’t have. I could also talk about the stop the violence concerts, talks, etc, that Gucci has been apart of… but I think I’ve made my point.

        As for the jewels, some people like boats, some collect cars, some like planes. Gucci likes jewelry. The only thing I would question is the quality. Some of the colors of the stones in his pieces really throw me… But that’s another issue.

        • Eve Jones

          I dont know if you white or black but what eva you is you sound lame as fuck you actually think people work hard for they money to do what some body else want them to do with it. So what cause he like jewelry. What have you done for us lately nothin but put us down and mad cause yoe lame azz got too work harder for yours then he due get ya cash up then you wont half to worry bout what the next man do wit his money put yoe money where yoe mouth is an stop judging people you not GOD we just love his music thats all we need to know bout Gucci and he fine too how you like dem apples lil slang talk fa ya proper ass!

    Here’s to the downfall of hip-hop.

    • Chilly Willy

      Look at the prints on the left edge. It says :
      XXL :We’ll hold you down Free Gucci Mane

      Free for what? For bullshit on a higher level?
      What did you do for Tookie Williams when he got a Nobel nod, XXL ? Did you say anything about Abou Ghraib ? About Ang Suu Kyi ? But the minute an icy monkey-ass simp like this here, who incidentally plays with word (if you wanna call burr a word) over a casio keyboard loop for a living end up in the big house for something he DID really DO, now you political ?

      Wait, wait, what was that ? He hiphop ? Though it’s debatable, how about highlighting those “hiphop” dudes who even through hardships didn’t end up in jail on account of their own bullshit ? Well, if you wanna be technical about it, this being a business we the fans cannot understand and all that corporate shit talk, fine.

      But how can something dubbed “THE BEST INTERVIEW EVER” be in the background of a 3 watches wearing gaudy jewellery human display ?

      • peachy

        my man. Tookie did do the shit he did too. life turn around or whatever you want to call it, he did his time and got the punishment that the law says he should. i aint supportin the fact that XXL is tryna to hold gucci down while they ignored these other dudes, i agree with you that they shul have, but dont be makin it sound like tookie and these other dudes was innocent

        • Chilly Willy

          Yeah, no doubt he did it. I ain’t arguing that fact, but when he got the Nobel nod, it suddenly became a political fight all of a sudden, not just some trivial shit. That was an important issue to be talked about. So you could be like free him, or don’t ever free him, but I mean that was an issue that was worth the argument. We know for a fact that Ang Suu Kyi is imprisoned for speaking her mind in a country where you just don’t wanna disagree with the powers that be, or else you’ll be tortured, that situation is worth asking if she should be freed or not.
          My point basically was, why make all those big declarations about trivial shit (how many days Gucci’s supposed to be inside btw) when you don’t say shit about the real issues. Because by doing that, our revendications, our hopes, our screams for our rights lose their strength when it’s needed the most. Why do you think people brush off the”race card” so easily nowadays ? Because prominent black figures have been pulling that shit for meaningless shit before so when it counts, people don’t pay attention anymore.

      • Escobar9300

        Get ‘em chilly! Co-sign all day. Cucci Mayne is flat out trash and is a legitimate embarassment to hip-hip.

    “..first few hours back in the big house.”

    Why didn’t XXL interview him before he was locked up? Just so they could say he was speaking from behind bars?

    From the cover: “Does getting locked up help or hurt rappers?” Apparently XXL is hoping it helps… to sell their magazine.

    C’mon son… what is he going to say of his prison experience after a couple hours of being back in? “Yeah, they just processed my paperwork and showed me my cell.”

    Wack.

  • HU

    Thanks XXL for helping destroy rap by putting a monkey on the cover draped in beyond stereotypical tattoos, jewelry and pants that fail to stay up properly. The Ku Klux Klan couldn’t even come up with an image this bad. This surpasses all the racist Disney cartoons as well.

  • HU

    To the 7 or so ignorant comments above me, this image is relevant whether you like Gucci or not so the criticism is necessary. You all need to educate yourselves on racism in the media, minstrels, and coons. What is “hate” anyway? “He gettin’ money” so everything he does is great and no one can criticize it? I keep black youth hooked on drugs and stupidity and rape underage girls but I’m getting money so its ok. Don’t hate. smh @ blackboy syndrome

  • Chilly Willy

    This is a real question, so Gucci stans, keep your panties:

    What in the fuck do you need THREE mothafuckin watches for ?????

    And that’s only for a literate nigga. I won’t even wanna ask it for a fonctionate illiterate as Mr Mane is rumored to be. I won’t stoop to that level, it’s just mean.

    Ain’t no diamonds worth nan nigga life. I don’t dig gucci Mane as an artist at all. I do respect his grind and hustle to the utmost though.

I don’t knock nobody’s opinion, I’m just staten mine. I’ll probably never cop gucci, but he is on his shit as far as his hustle, and that’s where it begins and stops. REAL TALK

    First of all, can we please stop using “D” in place of “TH”…i mean is it really that difficult to type “The” instead of “Da”.

    Second, I wanna say thank you to the few people from the south that have hip hop sense…I’m glad that some people from the south understand what it means to by lyrical…what it means to be an emcee…its not about money…a gucci, for all his hard work, is NOT an emcee…he’s a rapper…school yourself on the difference

    For you clowns that keep using “he’s gettin money, so he’s nice” arguements…do you feel the same way about, say, Soldier Boy? How bout Plies? Are you old enough to recall Vanilla Ice?? Ja Rule?? Selling records does NOT equate to being nice…and I would bet that MOST of that jewelry isn’t his.

    The jewelry, the tattoos, the excessive amount of watches…that’s coonery/niggery in every sense…I’m sure you clowns LOVE B.E.T. too

    Money? The n*gga is signed to a slave 360 deal. Warner Bros gets a hefty percentage of EVERYTHING, even the biggest no-no, show money. No endorsements. Son ain’t doing no shows. Most likely getting pennies on the dollar for every CD sold. PAYING LAWYER FEES.

    That man is probably all sobered up kickin’ himself in the ass because he’s MISSING all the money right now. Son should be in the library studying up on entertainment business so he can get his sh*t in order. Because 9 out of 10, all that jewelry you see is all that he has, and any uber-rich person knows that ONE diamond can equal up to all of that sh*t Gucci has on.

    And let’s not forget that stuff about his management team. Booking shows for when he comes out don’t mean sh*t if he can’t go anywhere(probation), which is what his team is getting put on blast for doing in the first place. Son better hope that federal indictment never happens.

    So f*** the music, son caught a time-out. Use it wisely and do the knowledge to the whole situation. Fam is one step away from losing everything he “worked” for.

  • nicholasdelorejo

    Man, this is why hip hop is so fucked-the-fucked up now. Not because of Gucci but because of the what rappers are being promoted and the attitude amoung those that are okay with it. Newcommers like Lupe Fiasco, B.O.B., Cudi, and Wale make lyrical and groundbreaking music and that shit gets ignored. But get a nigga with mediocre lyrics while supporting the tired “I get money, I sell weight” content and that shit gets praised. Anyone who disagrees is considered a hater or is mad at the south because we dislike a rapper who’s “getting more money than any of will ever see”. Me personally I don’t mind seeing a rapper being rich from the music. An artist’s wealth does not stop me from liking Jay-z, Nas, or whatever. However if I’m paying money for an artist’s music I expect to feel that artists hard work on every song. Not just some half-assed shit a nigga in 10 seconds of hearing a catchy jingle. I bet you the people that are here defending Gucci are the same people that woukd cop his album on bootleg before purchasing the CD in a store.

    I don’t hate Gucci in anyway. I just hate the fact that apparently hip hop is content with it being run by the rappers who lack the initiative to be creative rather than supporting the artists that try provide understanding to their own people. But I guess I should’ve said nothing at all. As someone commented earlier Gucci or none of his fans won’t be reading these comments.

    • nicholasdelorejo

      And there lies the problem with hip hop. It’s that everyone cares about anything but the music. I can see how people don’t consider rap as a form of music because no even the fans give a shit about it musically. Not once did any you or any of these Gucci supporters bring up the quality of his music as a case for XXL putting him on the cover. Just the simple “he making money” or “haters can only hate” speeches.

      Personally I don’t hate Gucci or deny him of being on the cover. I’m only pissed that rappers who had released critically acclaimed albums this year can’t even be featured on an XXL interview rather than make it on the cover. He was projected to sell about 100K in his first week. Almost as much as Cudi and only a few more than what Wale, Asher, and Reakwon sold. The criticism towards Gucci isn’t about an anti-Gucci campaign. This is about the fact that XXL would rather cater to one type of artist (gansta or dope boy rapper) as opposed to giving artists that bring the alternative a cover. Also Gucci may have gotten a second cover, but I can’t help but think he’ll end up like Jeezy when some other trapper rapper comes up with a catchy tune. The man clearly has no staying power since his fans only care about him getting money and not the music he brings.

      Man this is exactly why people still don’t consider hip hop a form of music. Because not even the fans give a shit about it in terms of music. But when a nigga gets seen on a mag no matter what the quality of his music may be. Not a single Gucci supporter brings up his music as a case for being featured on the cover. Just the simple “haters hating on Gucci’s grind” chant. If dude was so focused on building his career he wouldn’t have gone back to jail on violating his probation, now would he? Also Gucci being on a second cover doesn’t mean shit. XXL has had a history of promoting certain artists as future acts only for them to fall apart in the end (example: Suge Knight and Petey Pablo, the new Aftermath or G-unit covers). I don’t hate Gucci as with probably many othe people. I just hate the fact that people are so hell bent on supporting mediocre rappers who bring nothing to the table rather than true artists that can actually be defended on their SKILL AND WORK ETHIC, not just for releasing loads of shit mixtapes.

  • that nigga

    @SEALSEA AND TONY $$’S: You were right, this nigga got the cover of XXL right after you called it like a week or two ago. Fuckin’ shame. Respect due, homies. No hate against GUCCI, but I tried to give this nigga a listen or two and I just cant……just cant take that shit, man. Sorry GUCCI STANS, but I tried.

    THIS NIGGA IS FUCKIN WACK.

    • that nigga

      SIDE NOTE: They got “Rakim, the greates tinterview ever” on the side of Gucci Mane. Just thought I’d point that out. For some reason I think thats really disrespecful!

  • Javito_1

    People who try to defend wack-ass Gucci Mane all sound the same, and I quote: “FUCK YOU HATIN’ ASS NIGGAS SO ICY FREE GUCCI MANE BLAH BLAH BLAH”….. All you retards do is further reiterate the point that Gucci mane only appeals to close minded “niggas” destined to stay in the hood forever. I love all types of hip-hop, so i know a wack nigga when I see one, and Gucci mane is right down there with soulja boy. Even XXl gave Gucci an “L” for lyricism on his new album, and then when he goes to jail for the 5th time he gets the cover? Fuck outta here.
