Gucci Mane Won't Rock Eminem In His Car

Gucci Mane is on the cover the latest issue of FADER mag, an appropriate honor for Hip Hop's most famous recently freed man.

In the article, Gucci speaks on prison:

“Life in prison was hell,” says the 36-year-old rapper born Radric Davis. He’d been serving time on two counts of firearm possession as a felon. “It was a maximum security prison and it was a lot of violence. People were dying every week. [But] I think it helped me to get to the point I’m at now, to drive me out from the drugs. It gave me time to reflect, it made a lot of relationships that were toxic in my life just fall away.”
In a later discussion of why rappers like Fetty Wap and Chief Keef list Guwop as their biggest influence, Gucci makes reference to Eminem.

“I think I’m the easiest to imitate. I can’t imitate Eminem. And they can’t imitate Eminem, but they can imitate Gucci. Is Eminem good? Yes. Do I recognize he’s super talented? Hell yeah! But do I want to play that when I jump in my Maybach?”
Gucci is clearly going out of his way to compliment Shady's unique talent here. But he's also implying it doesn't work on the streets (or in a $200,000 car.)

Do you agree?
