Gucci Mane – Fashion Icon?

Now that the incarnated rapper is free he is ready to be on his fashion tip as he tells Vogue.com.  Gucci has been in and out of prison for some time now but has decided on this last stint to kick a bad habit, which was drinking cough medicine aka lean. He decided to start a gym routine to get him back into a lifestyle that he could embrace which surprisingly is fashion.

The 36yr. old rapper has now lost 75 pounds and choses a different kind of green to put into his body. Newly sober and trimmed-down Gucci proudly announces he can finally fit into, Balmain! Since he is finishing up his sentence by being on house arrest it has opened him up to online shopping (welcome to my world, Gucci)!

Passion for Fashion

I’ve always been really into fashion and clothes. I’ve always liked Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Hugo Boss, and just anything dope that catches my eye. Before I was incarcerated, I had gotten so overweight that I couldn’t fit into any of the clothes I wanted to wear. So with the time I was away, I decided I was going to lose weight so I could be able to wear all the brands that I really like.

Fashion & Hip Hop

I love fashion in hip-hop right now—I love how people are just taking risks, and I love how they’re embracing the high-end designers. There’s a more fitted, grown, mature look now. I love the way the young kids take chances with what they wear. Fashion is a part of your personality—it’s an extension of yourself. You can’t really get more personal than what you choose to put on. You can learn so much about a person when you see how they present themselves to the world.
