Gucci Mane Cracks Billboard Top 20 From Prison
Though still incarcerated, Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane has once again cracked the prestigious Billboard 200 chart, placing in the top 20.
Gucci last broke into the top 20 four months ago. This time, his mixtape ‘Burrrprint (2)’ sold over 19,400 copies, placing it in the No. 19 position on the charts. The mixtape features some major guests, including Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross. Several of the songs and interludes on Gucci’s mixtape were recorded from Fulton County Jail, including the intro, in which he intones “My jewelry game is at an all-time high right now.”
While his sales are impressive, fellow Atlanta rapper Ludacris still beat out Gucci this week, occupying the No. 13 seat with his most recent album, ‘Battle of the Sexes,’ which moved 24,600 copies this week, with 334,500 total sales to date.
