Radric Davis, who goes by the stage name “Gucci Mane,” was born on February 2, 1980 in Birmingham, Alabama, but moved to East Atlanta Georgia; Zone 6. Radric chose his stage-name “Gucci mane” based off his father’s nickname “Gucci Man,” who was a hustler. He had been living with a single mother and first began recording music at the young age of fourteen years. Though Gucci had really loved to write poetry at a young age, he had gotten especially excited and passionate about creating rap music after seeing artists like Big Daddy Kane achieve success.
He formerly worked with Big Cat Records who provided him with studio time and helped release his records. Big Cat discovered Gucci while they were doing time in jail together. Gucci let loose a crazy freestyle and Big Cat understood that he had a lot of talent. They started by promoting his single “Black Tee,” which garnered Gucci a lot of attention from radio stations and club DJ’s.
He even got a lot of calls from record labels hoping to sign him. Even though Radric “Gucci Mane” Davis has parted with Big Cat, he still respects the studio time, hustle, and stardom that was achieved together. Since moving on from Big Cat Records, Gucci has developed his own lineup of artists affiliated with his self-established “So Icey Entertainment” label that include: OJ Da Juiceman, Zaytoven, Wooh Da Kid, Frenchie, Waka Flocka Flame, and Chilla Pertilla.
Gucci has not had an easy time staying free of legal trouble throughout his rap career. On the date of May 10, 2005, men tried to attack Gucci and steal his trademark So Icey chain. The men trying to steal Gucci’s chain were quickly shot at by Gucci’s clique out of self-defense. It only took a few short days before people found out that there was an arrest warrant that had been issued for Gucci Mane.
Gucci Mane ended up turning himself into police investigators on May 19, 2005. Around the date of December 30, 2005, police let people know that there was not enough evidence to form a case against Gucci for a murder charge. Gucci Mane was however not done with his legal trouble. Shortly thereafter, he was arrested for possession of marijuana and having an unlicensed gun on the exact day before that his debut album “Trap House” was scheduled to be released.
The police department of Georgia dropped the charges against Gucci Mane in January 2006 because they didn’t have solid evidence to prove him guilty. He left prison that same month on charges that were unrelated. A couple years later on July 23, 2008, Gucci was pulled over by officers just outside of the Atlanta area during a scheduled traffic stop. The police found that marijuana was in his car and he faced the drug charges.
On September 14, 2008, Gucci faced on year in jail because he violated the terms of his probation. After the violation of probation, he did time for over one year in jail. The police reported that Gucci did not do enough community service to get himself out of the situation. In 2009, Gucci Mane was finally released from jail after what seemed to be too long of a wait for his fans. Ever since getting freed, Gucci Mane has collaborated with superstar musicians like Mario, Mariah Carey, and Lil Wayne. He has also released the mixtape “Writing On The Wall” with his in-house So Icey Entertainment producer, Zaytoven.
As of 2009, Gucci Mane is preparing to release a new album for his fans. His mixtape buzz actually grew during the recent year that he spent in jail for the probation violation. He is set to be releasing a new mixtape called “Guccitendo” as well as another official mixtape called “Guccimania” which will have some of his hottest singles. He is currently affiliated and signed with Warner Bros. Records and is promoting his “So Icey Entertainment” label as well. Due to the fact that Gucci Mane has a work-ethic that is unparalleled right now in the game, he will continue to gain popularity and appeal to a wider range of audiences.
Gucci Mane is back with the “Writing On The Wall 2 mixtape” that he promised the fans with DJ Holiday if you follow them on Twitter. A lot of people have been highly anticipating this release and it was a relief to know that he’s finally out of jail again. Everybody is hoping that he keeps his head high and shares the struggle that he’s been through while making good music for the people. The homie Waka Flocka Flame has been really anticipating Gucci getting free so that they can make a big push for their Ferrari Boyz album which is on deck at the moment and scheduled to be released August 2nd according to the “Gucci Talk” track on this mixtape – he says it will be “in stores!”
