A lot has been said about the fame that the southern artist Gucci Mane has gained throughout his career as a rapper. He started out as a rapper back in the late 1990's and worked his way up to achieve massive success. Gucci Mane music aims to glorify cars, diamonds, girls, and the real street life that he experienced in the Atlanta projects. Many people are unaware of the fact that Radric Davis, better known as "Gucci," did not have an easy path to his success; in fact, he had a lot more obstacles than most people.

Gucci Mane grew up in Atlanta and was raised by his mother. His father was not there for him, but Gucci still looked up to his dad who happened to be nicknamed "Gucci Man." Radric decided that in order for him to remember his father and keep his spirit alive, that he should adopt a similar nickname. He eventually decided to add the letter "E" to "Man," and kept the "Gucci" part. He ended up creating the nickname "Gucci Mane." Everybody who knows Gucci's music knows that he makes drug references and uses what some may consider derogatory language to describe his lifestyle.

The goal of his music is to stay true to himself and give people something to relate to and enjoy in their lives. Some of Gucci's interests include: Making good music, freestyling, partying, hanging out with friends, riding in expensive cars, and shopping for new chains. As his name implies, you know that he also likes to dress in expensive Gucci clothing. He is considered one of the biggest rap legends in the music industry today and has experienced a lot of success in his twelve-complete years as a rapper.

What people love about Gucci Mane music is the fact that it has something to offer for everyone. Whether you are from the streets and can relate to his talk about hustling and selling "bricks," or are just an average suburban white kid who likes to party and wear expensive clothes, Gucci Mane offers a great selection of songs like "Icy." His goal is always to stay true to the streets and the people who have fully supported him from day one in the rap game. He has become very close friends with other artists like OJ Da Juiceman and Zaytoven, both of whom are signed to Gucci Mane's record label called "So Icey."

Gucci Mane has really earned a top notch position in the game because he has outworked and out-hustled most rappers in the game. He travels all over and connects with radio deejays that admire his skills as a freestyler and also enjoy playing his music. The Atlanta strip clubs also fully support Gucci anytime he has a new song that he wants to get played. The internet has also given him another way to reach his fans.
