Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane was a prominent figure in the city’s hip-hop scene during the days of Crunk in the 2000s. Although the artist did not represent the subgenre, he most certainly had much respect and notoriety in his hometown.
In an interview with Vlad TV, Quavo of the Migos explained how Gucci Mane (real name Radic Davis) connected with them and disclosed that he got a phone call while he was driving his car when Davis stated that he had seen them on YouTube.
However, although he helped them in their early days, in 2019, the Atlanta artist made the claim that he played a vital role in the Migos’ success and recalled crafting the 2013 track track ‘Holmes,’ which he assisted alongside Young Scooter.
Posting a photo of himself and the Migos, Davis wrote, “The First day I met the @migos @quavohuncho @yrntakeoff both threw away the fake chains they had on cuz I gave them both the 2chains off my neck.”
He continued, “Same day @offsetyrn called from jail and told me send racks to his lawyer to get him out, and I did that the same day off our first conversation.” However, the late emcee Takeoff refuted Gucci Mane’s claims.
Commenting under his post, Takeoff wrote, “Das Cap U Kno Dat… But I’m So Blessed We Gon Leave It @ Dat… Thank You.” However, Gucci responded with another picture that showed him with Takeoff who was praising him and crediting him with changing his life.
The Offset post read, “When Guwop called my manager, that night it changed my life! #TheTruth #BigFacts #NoCap.” However, there was no bad blood between Davis and the trio, as after listening to Migos’ Culture II mixtape, the rhymer tweeted, “Culture 2 out @yrntakeoff my fav rapper now!!!”
