Rap is a aggressive trade, and lots of artists have proclaimed themselves the most effective to ever do it; course, the discourse produces a spread recurring names, together with staples like Pac, Big, Em, Hov, Nas, Andre 3000, and lots of extra. Yet the legendary Gucci Mane is seeking to shift the narrative.

Now, with Evil Genius dropping tomorrow, Gucci took to Power 106’s Cruz Show to clarify why his identify needs to be within the dialog.
Upon being requested to call the most effective rapper on the earth, Gucci comes by means of with some real ardour for his craft. “One hundred p.c me,” he proclaims. “Who doper than me like for actual?
