Hot off the release of The Appeal: Georgia's Most Wanted, Gucci sits down with Spin to give an extended interview about his life and music. Well, sort of. After the reporter starts asking him about various probation violations and whether or not his newly de-grilled teeth are fake - seriously - Gooch decides to get up and walk away. (No big deal; he does stuff like that.) The incident - and Gucci's subsequent refusal to pose for pictures to accompany the feature - inspires the writer to label the rapper "his own worst enemy." He also insinuates that Gooch's career has been hindered by his reluctance to conform to the norm. Really? While there's no question that Radric Davis does what the fuck he wants, I doubt anyone could seriously argue that it's hurt his album sales. (One might rightfully posit that in fact, the opposite is true.)
Despite the spurned reporter's semi-catty tone, and his tenuous grasp on Gucci's psyche (and, arguably, on southern hip-hop in general), it's a relatively revealing article, and worth a read. Though now I really want to hear the two Pharrell-produced tracks that didn't make The Appeal. "Haterade" is fine and dandy, but the description of the cutting room shit has me quite curious.
ooooohhhh, I'm so excited!! I can't wait to see them together!
come on man you know you got a bromance. you probably still rock that OutKast…
Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
