Gucci Mane was born Radric Delantic Davis, on the 12th February, 1980, in Bessemer, Alabama. His father was a former U.S serviceman and power plant worker, and his mother a social worker and teacher. Gucci’s family had a strong military background with his paternal grandfather, James Dudley, Sr., serving in the military for twelve years, and his maternal grandfather, Walter Lee Davis, serving in the Pacific during World War II. Mane’s father also served in the military, and was stationed in Korea for two years.
Gucci Mane married Keyshia Ka’oir on October 17, 2017. The wedding was paid for by BET which produced a 10 episode TV series based on it, called “The Mane Event” showing Ka’oir organizing the wedding, culminating in walking down the aisle on a carpet sprinkled with diamonds. Mane proposed to Ka’oir after performing at an Atlanta Hawks basketball game. In his autobiography, he revealed that he has a son born in 2007 whom he had not known about until 2016.
Gucci had been in a trouble several times. In 2005, he was attacked at his house in Decatur, Georgia, he fought back and Gucci and his crew shot and killed one of the attackers. Then he got into further trouble in June of that year after assaulting a nightclub promoter. In October he pleaded no contest to the assault charges which landed him six months in county jail.
While he was locked up in the district attorney’s office they dropped the murder charge after realizing there was insufficient evidence to prosecute. In September 2008, Gucci Mane was arrested for violation of probation having completed 25 hours of his requested 600. He also spent the next six months in jail as result. In 2010, Gucci was again arrested for driving on the wrong side of the road damaging government property, and a whole bunch of other traffic charges.
