Gucci Mane isn’t a lyrical juggernaut. He w0n’t astound you with his lyricism, but his gangsta persona resonates to his audience and hip hop culture. It has been a few years since we’ve seen Guwop in the flesh, but his insane work ethic has allowed us to listen to plethora of mixtapes. While he is misunderstood, he’s undeniably one of the hardest working rappers in the game. Love him or hate him,  Gucci is finally coming home.
