Not only did I have that stigma that rappers were all broke and lame, but I had long ago convinced myself that people never take me seriously if I started up rapping.” Gucci Mane didn’t always wanted to be a rapper, in fact he thought they were all lame. He always thought if he started to rap, no one would take seriously. Not until one of long time best friend, Zaytoven, encouraged him to do so. This would change his life forever
”As the U-Haul pulled off I waved good-bye to family and friends as they chased the truck”. Gucci must have felt very emotional as he said goodbye to everybody. He was moving to Atlanta to escape all of the family troubles. Him moving to Atlanta would be a very big influence on his music and lifestyle he had while living there.
“ I need you guys to sell the hell out of this CD” Gucci found a vendor on the streets and asked if he can sell his CDs here and they agreed. He had to do a few things to make sure they sold the CDs but to him it didn’t matter because now his music was being pushed throughout the state of Georgia. This would be a very important step into his career.
