Offset came through with a surprise party for Guwop
Gucci Mane’s redemption narrative should give all of us hope. Over the last 10 years, the rapper has been through the ringer. He’s been on trial for murder. He’s been in and out of prison on various charges. He’s been locked in a spiral of release and recidivism, with a healthy dose of drug addiction thrown in for good measure. But just look at pictures of him from yesterday and it’s easy to see that all of that has been put in the past.
That’s because since Gucci’s last trip to prison, he’s dropped a ton of weight, written a book, finally benefitted from the critical world and a younger generation giving him his credit, and gotten engaged. If that wasn’t enough, he has good, famous friends like Offset to make his life that much sweeter.
The Migos member ― one of two who was absolutely not left off “Bad & Boujee” ― threw Gucci a surprise bachelor party and the grin it left on Gucci’s face is infectious.
We gotta say, we like Offset’s style. How do you throw a bachelor party for your sober homie? Head past Michael’s on your way to Magic City and get yourself some strippers and some balloons. Throw in some decent food and you’re off/set.
A Low-Key Party
We assume the party is so mellow because Gucci already partied hard when he found out that his probation was ending early. Like we said, he’s getting a lot of good breaks after years of terrible problems. His probation was ended a whole two years early when no one contested his motion for early release from the program.
Gucci has fully admitted that he was in a dark place. In an interview with Highly Questionable he said that he suffered from PTSD due to his years of being involved in violent acts and abusing drugs.
“I felt like I was gonna kill somebody, for trying to kill me” Gucci said. “I was never afraid. I just kinda, in my mind I felt like someone was going to try to hurt me, try to rob me, do something to force my hand and defend myself and hurt them.”
What Do You Think?
Mane credits part of his turnaround to the book As A Man Thinketh. He told the hosts that he was happy he could take the self-help book to heart and actually get out from under his former life.
I’m proud of what I did. I’m proud that I’m still here,” he said. “I’m proud that I got past all of it.”
And it’s all about to pay off in a big way. Gucci’s getting married at a wedding that’s going to be over-the-top and opulent, if the invitations are any indication. Mr. and Mrs. Mane invited their friends to the event with invites made to look like mirrors that cost $1K a piece. The inside invited friends of Radric Davis and his boo to come on down with script surrounded by Swarovski crystals.
Luckily, you don’t have to be famous or super-rich to see how shiny Gucci’s wedding will get. The whole thing is being filmed as part of a BET reality series on the couple.
