Challenging the Elders
He gave hip-hop “Hell Shell” and “Yeah Yeah,” and now, Young Nudy is giving Guwop a run for his money. With the release of Gucci Mane’s autobiography, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, this past September, Gucci fans got to know him a little bit. Within the 304-page work, a gas station in Gucci’s home town (the Texaco on Bouldercrest) is a frequent backdrop.
Many years and checks later, the Atlanta native recently went to visit the Texaco on Bouldercrest, documenting the event on Instagram. In a string of posts, the Mr. Davis rapper let everyone know that he still “run Bouldercrest like #ElGato.”
However, Young Nudy found that statement debatable.
Gucci’s fellow ATL artist Nudy offered fans a picture of him and his team at the same Texaco on Bouldercrest, warning them to not believe Guwop’s hype.
“At the Texaco on Bouldercrest I sold nicks and dimes at as a teenager,” Gucci captioned the first of four photos of himself in his hometown. He then posted a #goals picture of himself with three other friends, captioned “Fo Real Ogz.”
In response, Nudy posted a picture of himself with six other friends. “Last time I checked #PDE #Run #Bouldercrest We Don’t No buddy He don’t Be in the hood Dats A big CAP I got the hold #Bouldercrest #and #Eastatlant #mygucci #voice😁,” he wrote alongside the Instagram post.
The Mane Event
Gucci may clap back, telling the young artist to respect his elders, or he may say nothing at all. After all, he’s busy raking in the dough from his shiny new record contract. Gucci recently announced a $10 million extension with Atlantic Records. His announcement, though good news, was met with Twitter memes and jokes because it came 38 days after he announced that he would be “100 percent independent and dropping a mixtape every other day” in 2018.
“Thank You AtlanticRecords for the 10 million dollar extension #ELGATOTheHumanGlacier I appreciate It sincerely,” he tweeted.
In the end, no one could truly blame him for staying where his bread is buttered. He’s a married man now, so he has a family to support. Only a few months ago, Gucci and Keyshia Ka’Oir exchanged vows in a star-studded multi-million dollar wedding. The event of the season was well-documented on BET’s Gucci Mane & Keyshia Ka’Oir: The Mane Event.
