In 2006, the young star recorded the second studio album with the single “Freaky Girl," that appeared as number 12 on Hot Rap Tracks, 19 on Hot R & B / Hip-Hop Songs and 21 on Hot 100 tracks. Apparently, blinded by crazy popularity, he did not only work hard releasing more and more hits but also lived a kind of spoiled life.
However, something went wrong in 2013. It was in September 2013 that he was arrested and sent for three years in an Indiana federal jail for drug and gun charges. While being arrested, the tall and big man (Gucci Mane height is 6 ft 2 in or 188 cm) cursed and threatened the police. He was guilty of carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct and marijuana possession.
The rapper was released in May 2016. This period made him take a break in his creative career, and the star admitted it in one of his interviews:
“I pride myself on just being a man. I didn’t stand on the fact that I was a rapper. I stood on the fact that I’m Radric Davis the man and I made everybody who dealt with me deal with me as Radric Davis the man, from the corrections officers, from the judge, from the lawyer, from federal prisoners… I’m not rapping in prison; I’m in the same suit you in….I wasn’t in the mood to play the celebrity game.”
However, the man claims that this life experience changed him. He commented:
“[Prison] was one of the best things that ever happened to me, looking back on it. It’s a life-changing experience, being in a place that is full of death, full of violence, full of rage, full of despair. It motivated me to change my life because I’m never going back there.”
Not only spiritual transformations happened to the star in prison. 100-pound Gucci Mane weight loss became inspirational for many of his fans.
The star even created an encouraging video for those who are currently on their way to a fit body. He said:
“I used to be fat. For people who ain’t in shape, people who ain’t healthy, people who need some inspiration, listen: I was 290 pounds, now I’m 190 pounds. I lost 100 pounds. I’m 190 right now. I said I’m 190! So check this out: You can do it if I can do it. Use me for inspiration. ‘Cause I see a lot ya’ll and y’all look terrible.”
Everything is possible; however, to achieve this goal, there is no need to go to prison as Radric Davis did.
The man continued his work in 2017. He was brought up by the collaboration with Offset, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, and Young Dolph, released his 11th official studio album, and featured more stars like Migos ("I Get the Bag"), Nicki Minaj("Make Love"), the Weeknd ("Curve”), Monica ("We Ride"), and others. Also in 2017, the rapper issued his third official LP of the year, El Gato: The Human Glacier and it landed within the Top 30 of the overall albums chart. Later in 2018, the celebrity released his thirteenth album, Evil Genius, which featured Quavo, 21 Savage, Kevin Gates, Migos, Lil Yachty, and even Bruno Mars.
