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… » Read more..
