Gucci Mane Encourages Chief Keef To Not Follow In His Footsteps

Gucci Mane talks past regrets and comments on the media making their "own assumptions" when it concerns his run ins with the law.

Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane seemed to take Chicago artist Chief Keef under his wings when he signed the teen emcee to his Brick Squad label last month, but according to Gucci, he hopes that Keef chooses to now follow his path and instead learns from his past mistakes.

As an artist who has found himself engulfed in controversy, the Brick Squad rapper seemed surprisingly reflective during a recent interview with Power 107.5 as he spoke on the regrets of his past before speaking to Keef and other young men who might look up to him.

“I take responsibility for some of that bad stigma that comes from me. A lot of the things I have done, I regret. And a lot of it [I warranted]. A lot of it, it be false claims,” Gucci revealed. “Media take it and make they own assumptions…A lot of things don’t have a lot of truth in them…My advice would be to him [Chief Keef], and any other young guy, is to learn from…try not to do the same thing that I did.”

A picture of Gucci Mane speaking to a group of school children, which went viral several months ago, left many wondering why the rapper was allowed to speak at an elementary school. While the rapper didn’t speak specifically on the visit during his radio interview, he did touch on the youth preferring to hear advice from someone who’s actually in the know as opposed to their teachers.

“I feel like I can tell my story to anyone who wanna hear it,” he said. “Kids don’t usually like listening to their teachers. They wanna hear from somebody they feel likes in the streets or in the know. Got to say something. That’s the only reason I speak…I try and tell ‘em some positive.”

    it is in his DNA... He is black. He is going to buy $100k cars and throw 24" rims on it, get arrested a few times, then back to the welfare line he goes after claiming bankruptcy.

    if gucci mane were to die, people would be sad, some people would probably be happy, but all in all, the man would be martyred by the streets and probably by other rappers in the industry. Whereas if any you died any death sort of a nationally-televised public crucification, gucci mane wouldn't give to 10 shits about you or your sad ass family. So who is really the retarded piece of shit? Maybe he needs to come 'give some positive' to you hatin fags cause all yall sound real butt hurt right now off the back of some encouragement and honesty in an interview.

    I encourage all you neggaz to not follow my footsteps but you never listen.

    GUCCI IS RIGHT, HE KNOWS WHAT HE DOES. AT THE END OF THE DAY, HE HAS A COMMON SENSE ABOUT WHAT IS GOOD AND WHAT IS NOT. BUT CHIEF KEEF IS A DUMBASS IGNORANT NIGGA WHO WON'T TAKE HIS ADVICE SERIOUSLY. HOPEFULLY, THEY WILL LOCK HIM UP FOREVER.

    hopefully gucci will teach him not to cry when he goes to court and how to act like a man. when the judge asks gucci if he is guilty he says "bitch i might be"

    Fuck this ugly ass nigga

  • Big guwop the realest

    Big Guwop is the realest rapper and heres why. 1) all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. 2) Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. 3)Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. 4)Nas raps about how he is a queens thug but he wasn't. 5)Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. 6)When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. BIG GUWOP KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!

    Gucci needs to worry about himself and not Keef. He's one more arrest away from doing life with Morgan Freeman.

  • Fuck Atlanta
