Even before he got out of prison, Gucci Mane’s return was already receiving commentary from his fellow rappers.
In a recent interview with MTV News, Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo gave his opinion on Gucci’s release.
“Basically, me and Gucci, when my career started and Gucci’s career started, we was in the struggle. We was blackballed,” explained Shawty Lo. “So me and Gucci, we feel like we’re brothers from a different mother. Just to be here, man, it feels good to be here. I been arrested 28 times, and I been convicted four times, so I know how it feels. The Hip Hop police got it in [for us]. But at the end of the day, I’m here, thick or thin.”
Lo, who added he that he’s awaiting Lil Wayne and Boosie’s release as well, was joined by DJ Holiday, who proclaimed his support for Gucci was genuine, and not fabricated for publicity.
“I ain’t about getting that look. We’re brothers. We family. It’s bigger than that rap stuff.”
