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: Continue Reading…
Usher & Gucci Mane on set of “Spotlight” video shoot
Check out a few screen shots from the set of Gucci Mane’s upcoming video for “Spotlight” featuring Usher. The song was featured on a recent “A” Pod (Click Here if you missed it) and is yet another hot joint for Gucci. As if an Usher duo wasn’t enought to create quite a buzz, there’s much talk about the video in that it features Bria Murphy, the oldest daughter of comedian Eddie Murphy and his ex-wife Nicole.? The scenery may also look familiar to some of you club heads. It was shot at LIFE over on Cheshire Bridge.
Gucci Mane is hot like FIRE these days and on dayum near everybody’s song…even my Big Boi’s “Shine Blockers”!? Now a new track has dropped from his upcoming “State vs. Radric Davis” LP, which is scheduled for release in December. This new track is produced by none other than Polow Da Don and features the divorce PAPERS king, Usher Raymond, who sings, “The spotlight ain’t nothing without you girl, and the dance floor ain’t nothing without you, girl/ You a show-stopper/ Let’s get it poppin'” over the hot track.
The new song is entitled “Spotlight” and it’s so hot that the video has already been recorded! According to MTV:
Gucci and Usher shot a video for the song over the weekend in Atlanta. The clip was directed by Benny Boom and according to Gucci’s camp, it’s heavy on performance and club scenes. Young Money princess Nicki Minaj makes a cameo in the clip, and Gucci’s leading lady comes straight from the bloodline of one of the most successful actors in Hollywood history: Bria Murphy, daughter of Eddie, is the woman who makes Gucci goes crazy in this one.
That should be interesting….

Check out the newest leak from my future ex-husband/baby daddy Big Boi called “Shine Blockas” which features Gucci Mane.? Now because I’m biased I’m not gonna say much EXCEPT that this song is one of my favorites from Big’s unreleased CD. I’ve heard Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty in it’s entirety twice and I’m still anxiously awaiting it’s release. Yep…hear it and download it right here first cause I always have to represent for the home team. Naah meen?
Shine Blockas ~ Big Boi ft. Gucci Mane
And speaking of representing… I read a tweet earlier that said in essence ‘if Jay-Z released a song New York radio is all over it’, so how come Atlanta radio hasn’t represented for their own? I’m not privy to all that radio talk, but I’ve heard that the first song I leaked, For Your Sorrows has gotten “ZERO spins” on Atlanta radio…. WassssupWitThat?
