9. Gucci Mane
Born: 12th Feb. 1980, Bessemer, Alabama
Gucci Mane, recently released from Prison, is one of East Atlanta's most important artists in the 'Trap' scene. Any new and upcoming artists would strive for Gucci's approval, as his talent and street credibility made him a hip-hop sensation throughout the early 2000s. Even though Gucci Mane has separated himself from the brutal, drug and crime filled music of his past, many artists seek to collaborate with Gucci Mane to this day.
