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.)
