Most people have never heard of Radric Davis, but almost everyone knows him by his rapper alias, Gucci Mane. His first studio album hit shelves in 2005 and had a few successful follow-ups, but what hip hop fans really cannot stop talking about are the amazing Gucci Mane mixtapes.

In 2005, while serving a jail term for assault charges, Gucci Mane was charged with murder.

The mixtape was made up of completely new music and featured collaborations with artists such as Piles, Juelz Santana and Shawty Lo.

In addition to his mixtapes, Gucci Mane has had a great deal of success with his many studio albums. His 2007 release, Back to the Trap House featured a remix of his hit Freaky Gurl, which featured Lil Kim and Ludacris. He has also appeared on hit songs for a number of big stars, including remixes for Black Eyed Peas and Mariah Carrey.
