During the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards, Gucci Mane performed onstage at least 4 times with different artists but it was his performance of “Wasted” that warranted a public service announcement. BET, in an effort to discourage youths from celebrating in being drunk and wasted, ran the brief PSA from Gucci Mane himself advising all watching that he’s serious about his sobriety:
Yeah it’s ya boy Gucci. I want y’all to know that I do make party records and it’s all fun. But on a serious note, I’m taking my own sobriety very seriously. And this is for real. It’s coming from ya boy Gucci. Be safe.
I wonder who’s taking the credit for this PSA. Gucci’s probation officer or BET? Performance video below:
