Gucci Mane Covers The Source

Gucci Mane shows his grill for the cover of The Source’s annual Green Issue. The feature is written by moi and hits newsstands March 22nd. Below is an excerpt of La Flare on making the Forbes list last year.

Source: You don’t make Forbes by being stupid. Do you feel like people doubt your intelligence?
Gucci: Yeah. The critics and bloggers ridicule and scrutinize [but] it fuels my fire. I can’t say I want to enjoy all the spoils of the game without being criticized. I actually welcome it as a part of success. I don’t want everybody to like me. So many people feel like I don’t deserve the things I got. I know I worked so hard for ‘em, so [criticism] makes me work even harder.

On a personal note, this is technically my first cover story. A few years back, I split duties covering Lil Boosie for RIDES and XXL. Shouts to Bonsu Thompson and the countless others along the way (Tiffany Chiles, Jack Erwin, Vanessa Satten, Rachelle Gauthier, Datwon Thomas, etc.) that helped make this moment possible. You are appreciated.

  • B Dot you made it homie!

  • Donn

    Congrats B.Dot

    Ppl can say what they want but these artist don’t get where they are without hard work, they may not express themselves on the par of the Jay-Z’s, Nas’ and Raekwon’s but that’s what music is for, to express yourself how YOU want. Not how the world thinks you should. Do your thing Gucci!! And stay outta trouble.

    Still bumping Grown Man (feat. Estelle), realest Gucci record i ever heard
