Gucci Mane has his album “The Return Of East Atlanta Santa” coming out soon and is currently doing some promo tours for the release. Yesterday he stopped by ESPN and appeared on “His & Hers”, where besides music, he wanted to talk about his Atlanta Falcons, Alabama football, not using any drugs and much more.


We can get back to the sports part in a minute but Gucci seemed very proud of his sobriety since his release from prison. “To me it’s kind of being more cocky. I love telling someone ‘Hey listen, I don’t do drugs…’ I take pride in it, I like the response. It definitely surprises people and kinda throws them off, but I don’t wanna be predictive. I don’t wanna do what everyone else do, I do this for me.” Shout to him for being prideful of that and hopefully influencing some others to lay off the booze and drugs.

Given the recent success of the #MannequinChallenge which mostly uses Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” which features Gucci, it was only right they talk about the success of the song and how happy he is to be part of it.

“It’s a huge accomplishment, I’m so grateful to even be on that track,” he said. “That’s the biggest record right now in America, and I’m just proud of it. When I got the track I knew it was a hit… but you never know how far things are gonna go,” he said. “Every time I’m in the studio I’m aiming for the fences.”

Jemele Hill started off the conversation on a sports level, asking him about his teams. He also touched on the fact he released so much music while still in prison and you can check out the entire interaction below.
