Hot Music Video – North Pole – Gucci Mane

Radric Davis, who goes by the stage name “Gucci Mane,” was born 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 old. 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 Mane is back with a new single called “North Pole” produced by Mike Will. Check out his new video and also “Trap Back” mixtape trailer below…

He is definitely going hard and back on the scene with this gangsta style “Trap Back” mixtape hosted by DJ Holiday. that is expected to drop hard just in time for some football on Super Bowl Sunday (February 5, 2012). On the cover, paparazzi are flashing pictures of Gucci, while he is sitting in his car, in the trap zone,of course. This is Gucci’s second mixtape since being released from jail back in December 2011. Also East Atlanta Santa mixtape is hopefully coming out soon, it was unfortunately delayed for unknown reasons. Which disappointed many fans in the process.

Another past failed attempt to spark his career and get it back in ice mode, was when he decided to work with Kreayshawn’s tacky rapper on BAYTL. Which was a collaboration album between Gucci Mane and White Girl Mob’s member V-Nasty. The album was released in December 2011 thru Warner Bros Records, Asylum and 1017 Brick Squad record labels. It was produced by Zaytoven, who produced 11 of the album’s 12 tracks, and Tha Bizness, who have worked with Jay-Z, Young Money, Game, Chris Brown, Ice Cube, Young Jeezy, T-Pain, 50 Cent, Wale, Trey Songz and others. The album’s first official single was “Whip Appeal”, featuring P2theLA and produced by Zaytoven, which was released in November 2011. On December 16, the two rappers were preparing to shoot a video for the song “Push Ups”, featuring Slim Dunkin, at a recording studio in Atlanta. However, once the latter arrived, he got into an altercation with fellow rapper Young Vito, who shot Dunkin dead. Vito was arrested 11 days later for the murder. As of January 2012 the album has sold 9,016 copies in the US. BAYTL received many NEGATIVE reviews according to Metacritic, scoring only 31/100. The album got a 2.5/5 rating from All Music, 2/5 from XXL Magazine, 1/10 from Spin and 0.5/5 from Consequence of Sound. That says it all, sorry Gucci. I hope it turns around for you ice cream man…
