What is Gucci Mane’s net worth?
Gucci Mane (actual name Radric Davis) is a $14 million-dollar rapper from the United States. Gucci Mane began rapping at the age of 14 and began writing poems as a child. In the 2000s and 2010s, he and fellow Atlanta rappers T.I. and Young Jeezy helped to pioneer the hip hop subgenre of trap music. In 2005, Mane released his debut album, “Trap House.” In 2006, Mane released “Hard to Kill,” followed by “Trap-A-Thon,” and “Back to the Trap House” in 2007.
Radric Delantic Davis was born in Bessemer, Alabama, on February 12, 1980. His father was on the run from the cops for distributing crack cocaine and heroin when he was born, and he was residing in Detroit, Michigan. While his mother was at college, Davis was reared by his paternal grandmother. Victor, Mane’s older half-brother, introduced him to rap and hip hop at a young age by taking him to a Run-DMC, Beastie Boys, and LL Cool J event. Mane and his mother moved to Atlanta in 1989. He grew up in a high-crime region. Mane started selling drugs when he was in junior high. In seventh grade, he spent his Christmas money on crack cocaine to sell to others.
Mane was a good student and well-liked by his classmates in high school. Mane didn’t take drugs for the first few years he was dealing with, despite having a side income as a drug dealer. Mane had been peddling narcotics for two years when he was stopped on his bicycle and robbed with a gun aimed at his head in 1995.
He began carrying a weapon after that. Mane earned a 3.0 GPA and a scholarship at Georgia Perimeter College after graduating from high school in 1998. In 2001, he was dismissed from college after an undercover cop discovered him in possession of crack cocaine. He was given a 90-day jail sentence as well as probation.
Mane began to take music seriously after his first arrest. He released an album called La Flare, which he distributed across East Atlanta in a run of 1,000 CDs. Mane collaborated with Young Jeezy on the song “So Icy,” which was released by Tommy Boy Records. Mane’s independent debut album, Trap House, was released in 2005. The album debuted in the Top 20 of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and reached #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album chart. In 2006, he released his second album, Hard to Kill. It featured the smash hit “Freaky Gurl,” which reached number 12 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart. Mane’s studio album The State vs. Radric Davis was released in 2010.
On the tune “Black Beatles,” Gucci Mane and Rae Sremmurd collaborated. It was released in November 2016 and quickly rose to the top of the music charts–not just R&B, hip hop, or rap music, but all music. As a featured artist, it was Mane’s first number-one single. In late 2016 and early 2017, it remained at the top of the charts for seven weeks in a row.
Gucci Mane astonished the audience at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival when he unexpectedly brought out P Diddy.
“The Autobiography of Gucci Mane” was released in the fall of 2017.
Gucci Mane has released 13 studio albums and over 71 mixtapes in his career as of this writing.
He started his own label, 1017 Records, in 2007. Drake, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey, and Marilyn Manson are among the musicians with whom he has collaborated. He has established himself as a key influence on younger Atlanta rappers like Young Thug, Migos, Rich Homie Quan, 21 Savage, and Lil Yachty as a result of his prolific mixtape releases and long-standing presence as a trap music creator in the Atlanta music scene.
On October 17, 2017, Gucci Mane married Keyshia Ka’oir. The wedding was funded by BET, who turned it into a 10-episode TV series dubbed “The Mane Event,” in which Ka’oir organizes the wedding and walks down the aisle on a diamond-studded carpet. After performing at an Atlanta Hawks basketball game, Mane proposed to Ka’oir.
He disclosed in his book that he had a son born in 2007 whom he was unaware of until 2016.
Mane was arrested for cocaine possession in 2001. He was given a 90-day prison sentence.
He was assaulted by a group of men at a house in Decatur, Georgia, in May 2005. Mane and his friends opened fire on the group, killing one of them. That man’s body was eventually discovered behind a middle school. He confessed to the murder and was charged with it. He said he fired the rounds in self-defense. In January 2006, the murder case against him was dismissed.
Mane had pleaded no contest to an aggravated assault charge against a nightclub owner the previous summer in October. Mane was serving a six-month sentence for assault when the murder accusation was withdrawn. In late January 2006, he was freed from prison. Mane was sentenced to a year in prison after failing to complete his community service hours following his 2005 assault conviction. In May of 2010, he was released.
Since 2010, Mane has been arrested and detained several times. He was most recently freed from prison in 2016, as of early 2020.
Previous Money Issues
Gucci Mane sued his former manager Debra Antney and her son, fellow rapper Waka Flocka Flame, in November 2013.
