Gucci Mane is an American rapper who, along with T.I and Young Jeezy introduced trap music to the industry, an event which sparked great interest in this form of music.
Today, along with his music, Gucci Mane is also known for his record label along with the autobiography he wrote.
According to recent reports by AQwebs, Gucci Mane’s net worth is $12 million.
Gucci Mane, named Radric Delantic Davis by his parents, was born in Alabama.
His family is one which has a strong military background with his maternal and paternal grandfathers both serving with the armed forces.
Furthermore, his father was also a military man and was in Korea for two years. However, his influence wasn’t that much on Gucci Mane’s life as his parents separated when he was young, and he soon started living solely with his mother.
Unfortunately, despite his own mother being a social worker, he got into bad company at a young age and started drug dealing, because of which he was sent to county jail.
Though he did get his act together to some extent as Gucci Mane’s net worth didn’t reach $12 million just like that, he still has frequent encounters with the law and has been sent to jail for other reasons more than once.
How did his career begin?
According to the rapper, he started writing lyrics when he was just fourteen years old.
His first mix-tape was called La Flare, but this wasn’t the true source of his success.
He teamed up with Jeezy and together, they both released the track So Icy. Gucci Mane mainly worked on the music, while Jeezy focused on the vocals. Though this song did garner attention for the two, they fell out as they couldn’t decide which terms their agreement should be on.
Gucci Mane’s net worth just increased after the release of the song So Icy as he then released his indie album Trap House.
Trap House reached the top 20 on the Billboard HipHop/R&B chart, a feat which was commendable for a singer’s first Indie album.
The second album released by Gucci Mane, Hard to Kill was also successful and featured the song Freaky Gurl.
The rapper then went on to get signed by Warner Bros., through whom he collaborated with Mariah Carey on Obsessed.
Gucci Mane has proved to be extremely passionate about his music as he released around 30 mix-tapes during 2014-2016. He also worked with Rae Stremmurd, on Black Beatle which was his first song to become the No.1 on the Billboard top 100 chart.
Additionally, Gucci Mane launched a record label under the name of So Icey Entertainment. However, he later renamed it to 1017 Brick Square Records, a major reason why Gucci Mane’s net worth is $12 million.
Here we list some of the highlights of his career:
- Trap House
- Hard to Kill
- The State vs Radric Davis
- The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted
- Everybody Looking
- El Gato: The Human Glacier
Though Gucci Mane continues to produce good music, an unfortunate fact is that he is often in the news for the wrong reasons.
