World Premiere: Gucci Mane “My Own Worst Enemy” and why he hopes Young Jeezy will hear him out (Update: Gucci in jail)Posted by Miss Info under Beef , Exclusives , New Music , Quotes , Relationships and Family , Videos
It’s been a hotly debated topic in the comments section every time we’ve had a Gucci Mane-related post, drawing lines in the sand between fans claiming regional prefs, or fans fighting about the merits of high-brow vs low-brow raps, or even the Team Jeezy fans vs. the Team Gucci splits. But one thing that keeps coming up again and again is the recognition of this widespread Gucci-Mania that has gone from “the Trap,” to pop radio to indie hipster to music-tv takeover, and more.
Well I got to see what the mania was all about when I was down in Atlanta….Gucci has very limited free time, but in between shooting multiple videos, eating lunch at the scripclub (lol), dropping 3 mixtapes at once, and holding court with his rabid fans, Gucci took me to the very housing complex where he grew up and admittedly screwed up in Zone 6/East Atlanta….to chat about many things (his history with T.I., being blacklisted in ATL, his childhood,etc). But in this clip, we talked about the song that surprised me the most.
Far from a diss song, is “My Own Worst Enemy” an “at-peace” song?

UPDATE: Just about an hour ago, a judge sentenced Gucci Mane to 12 months in Fulton County jail for probation violations. He was then taken into custody. He will most likely to do 6 months at minimum. (BET’s Carl Chery just posted this report)
After the jump….Meka/2DopeBoyz produced this Digiwaxx sit-down with Gucci’s labelmate and buddy, OJ da Juuman
