“Now that Gucci’s home, it’s over for you Gucci clones” was the memorable line Guwop spit on Kanye’s “Champions,” but could the rapper himself be a clone of, well, himself?! Of course not! However, this is the Internet, where Jay Z is head of the Illuminati and Tupac was murdered for trying to buy NBC or something.
The #StayWoke faction of hip-hop is wondering whether or not the real Gucci Mane was killed in prison and replaced with a government clone for purposes of–your guess is as good as mine because it’s still unclear what purpose a Gucci Mane clone would serve. The rumors first surfaced when the Zone 6 Gawd came home from prison looking as fit as ever and seemingly without his famous ice cream cone face tattoo.
Then a satire website quoted Boosie as flatout claiming Gucci had indeed been cloned. “I rock with Gucci the long way but that ain’t the real Gucci, we both sitting in the studio and he seemed lost and after his show at Mansion he called me Herman,” Things U Think cites Boosie as stating during a recent interview with The Breakfast Club. “You know they can do that crazy clone sh*t these days, you look at Gucci and tell me that’s Gucci and I’ll pay your child support and your baby’s momma rent.” Sounds pretty legit to me.
Unfortunately, Gucci Mane won’t confirm or deny the rumors. He released a video leaving fans just as confused as ever, stating, “I am hearing that Gucci is a clone. I will neither support or deny those accusations.” I can’t say for certain if the man in the video is the real Gucci, but I will say where there’s smoke there’s fire.
