Gucci Mane is the poster child for Transformation Tuesday.
In a new interview with Vogue, the rapper spoke about his love for luxury brands, helped along by his new healthy lifestyle. He admitted that since cutting drugs out of his diet, he has lost 75 pounds, allowing him to enhance his personal style with more fitted clothing.
The infamous rapper added, “I feel like working out humbles me. I used to live a life of excess, greed and gluttony. Now I’ve learned to challenge myself—to get up every day and push myself to live a healthier lifestyle.”
Gucci dished on his Gucci Mane & Friends homecoming concert, saying, “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.”
On the integration of fashion into hip-hop, he revealed, “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.”
