Just four short years ago, Gucci Mane was sitting on top of the rap world. He was featured on the official remix for Mariah Carey’s hit single, “Obsessed.” His own single, “Wasted,” was near the top of several Billboard charts. And we were all anxiously awaiting the release of his second solo album, The State vs. Radric Davis. Life was good for Gucci, and it looked like he was destined to be a superstar.
Unfortunately, that’s not how things played out for him. Due to a number of legal issues, a slew of subpar releases (we still haven’t forgiven him for teaming up with V-Nasty for BAYTL!), and several high-profile beefs, Gucci Mane’s career has gotten sidetracked. And he pretty much ensured that he will never be the mainstream star that we thought he would be earlier this week when he went on a Twitter rant and took shots at everyone from Nicki Minaj and Waka Flocka Flame to Eminem and Drake. (Gucci later claimed his ex manager hacked his Twitter account.) It’s not the only questionable call Gucci Mane has made in recent years, though. Here, 7 other strange career moves.
