Rapper Gucci Mane (born Radric Davis) is back after a three year prison sentence like he never left. Emerging from lock up as a new man that has kicked ‘syrup’ for the gym and drugs for kale, the 36-year-old Atlanta native has been catching everyone’s attention. Peep excerpts on Gucci’s return and new outlook on life.

On being back onstage after his hiatus:

The Gucci Mane & Friends concert was a very triumphant time for me. Being confined in the house all of the time, it was finally good to get back on the stage and see all of the artists I have been recording with for years. I finally had the chance to embrace and talk to them. Most importantly, it was a welcome-back concert for me and my fans. It was a chance for me to perform in front of my city and at the same time, it was a chance for me to see some of the people I hadn’t talked to in the last three years.

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.

On his new approach to fashion:

I’ve always liked a real classy look. I love colors, I love fabrics, and I love anything that’s well made and put together with class. I like my clothes more fitted now—my style has kind of matured and evolved. I’m embracing being 36 years old; I’m so comfortable with it and I think it’s just a part of my fashion direction now.

On his love of jewelry: 

My jeweler in Atlanta is named Fevzi. Aydin & Co. is one of my favorite jewelry designers; they made the ice-cream cone piece, which is one of my favorite jewelry pieces that I’ve ever had. I also have a rose gold Audemars Piguet watch that I love, and I just ordered a Patek Philippe watch in all-white that arrived the day of the homecoming show—it’s a badass watch. I love jewelry, I love being creative, and I love coming up with designs. I just love inventing stuff and bringing my ideas to life.
