After the whirlwind year he’s had since his release from prison last summer, it is easy to overlook the fact that Gucci Mane’s career was not always sunshine and rainbows. In fact, quite the opposite. Over the weekend, Guwop stopped by ESPN’s interview segment “Highly Questionable” to discuss his dark past with extreme candor. Watch the full interview below.
When talking about his career before his prison sentence, Gucci described it as a “blur of violence and paranoia and drugs,” one that he is currently experiencing PTSD from. He also tackled his past addiction with lean, of which he says he is “100 percent” surprised that it did not kill him.
Since his release, Gucci has an unbelievably prolific year. 2016 saw the release of Everybody Looking, Woptober and The Return of East Atlanta Santa. And those are just his solo albums. At this rate, expect an even dozen releases from Guwop this year.
