Born Radric Delantic Davis, rapper Gucci Mane has had a roller coaster life in his hip hop career: from a rising star to being sentenced to jail, only to come out better than ever, at the top of the charts, smiling all the time now and got married to the love of his life. Gucci is riding all the waves of life, whether up or down. Because according to him, he’s able to adjust to those waves better now due to dealing with something that’s not readily discussed in the Black community: mental illness. Gucci Mane opened up about his mental health and addiction in an interview with ESPN’s Highly Questionable.
