This story is iconic.
Gucci Mane recently released an autobiography with the assistance of former XXL editor Neil Martinez-Belkin. The 270-page book is a must-read for any avid music fan, providing an insight into the career & personal life of Atlanta’s most notorious trapper.
One of the most memorable anecdotes told by Gucci involves his first encounter with the Migos. Despite Offset being locked up on a parole violation, Quavo and Takeoff linked with Guwop at the infamous Brick Factory recording studio after being personally invited by the Zone 6 icon.
Gucci writes, “The first thing I noticed about these boys was that they had on a bunch of fake-ass jewelry. I took two gold necklaces off my neck, gave one to each of them, and told them I wanted them to be on my label.”
Following a brief paragraph explaining the circumstances of their newly signed record deal, Guwop continues with, “Shortly after Migos left, Scooter called me out of the booth. There was something I needed to see. ‘You see those boys threw their jewelry in the trash can?’ I figured Scooter was trying to be funny, making a joke about those bullshit chains. But I looked in the trash can and sure enough, there they were.”
