As if it weren’t surprising enough that Gucci Mane was even in a movie, the rapper will also have a sex scene in the feature film “Spring Breakers.” And according to director Harmony Korine, Gucci was a little less than excited during the shooting of the scene. In fact, he fell asleep.
In an interview with Vulture, Korine shared the details of filming Gucci’s sex scene, which took place on set at 4 a.m. But the director said it wasn’t the late night shoot that put the rapper to sleep, it was the rapper’s weed smoking.
“In his entourage, everybody smokes weed from the beginning of the day to the end,” Korine said. “So we’re inside this house in St. Petersburg, and the f—ing weed smoke was so insane and Gucci was basically catatonic. I was like, ‘Gucci, you’ve got to have sex with this chick now!'”
As an attempt to do less physical work, Korine also said that Gucci suggested that the girl be on top during the scene. The result? A sleeping Trap God.
“So we’re shooting the sequence, and as he is getting f—ed, I start to hear snores,” the director said. “He had literally passed out! And she was riding his d— the whole time. I’d never in my life filmed a sex scene where the dude was sleeping… and she was on top of him for a good 45 minutes.”
Vulture also got Gucci Mane on the phone for his side of the sex scene story. He confirmed that he had in fact fell asleep during shooting, but that he and the actress were not engaging in actual intercourse. Gucci also shared that Korine did not mess around on set.
“Yes, I was knocked out. I was tired. I had a concert down there in St. Petersburg, one of the days I had to shoot a scene. Same time, same night,” Gucci explained. “We started shooting at ten o’clock in the evening until one or two o’clock. I was extremely tired because Harmony would work for almost 48 hours straight, I think. Even though Harmony is a close friend and a great director, he’s a hard boss. Make sure you put that in bold letters.”
Once Gucc finally woke up, Korine recalled him saying “I feel real nice. I feel like Mozart’s on my d—.”
