Gucci Mane (born Radric Davis), is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. Davis was born in Bessemer, Alabama, and moved to Atlanta during the 4th grade, attending Shy Haven Elementary School and first began recording in the studio at the age of 14 while attending Ronald E. McNair Junior High School. He later, in June 1998, graduated from Ronald E. McNair Senior High school. His single "Icy" (music video directed by Lisa Cunningham) has become a major hit (debuted at #24 on Billboard Hot Rap Song Charts), and his album, Trap House, (which came out the day he was released on $100,000 bond for murder), debuted at #101 on the billboard 200. Gucci Mane has sold half a million albums independently. Gucci Mane's second album was released on October 24, 2006, titled Hard 2 Kill.
He also has beef with Jay Z. In one of his records, he refers to wanting to confront him in a New York night club. The record is called 745, which disses Young Jeezy also.
Gucci Mane recently put out a diss track insulting multi-platinum rapper T.I. titled "What Kinda King (I Smell Pussy)". Gucci Mane apologized over the phone through an interview about the diss song towards T.I., consulting that he thought that "Tell 'Em I Said That" song by T.I. in the cd T.I. Vs T.I.P. was about him, after T.I. told him the song was not about him.
