Gucci Mane has produced a huge body of work over the last 15 years to earn a name for himself in the hyper-competitive world of rap and hip-hop music. But he has also been in trouble with the law and surprisingly released music even from prison. Gucci Mane’s estimated net worth is $12.0 million, and his lifestyle showcases it. Keep reading to find out how Mane made his fortune and how he is spending it!
His real name is Radric Delantic Davis, but the world knows him by his professional name, Gucci Mane. Mane has made his fortune by rapping and acting, though he is known primarily for his music. After releasing his debut album Trap House in 2005, Mane has gone on to release 12 studio albums and more than 70 mixtapes. It sure seems like the word “prolific” was invented for him, considering the large body of work he has put out over the years!
Thanks to his albums, collaborations with other artists, live shows, and concerts, Gucci Mane’s estimated net worth is a cool $12.0 million. He has added to his estimated net worth by producing albums for other artists under his own label, 1017 Records.
Fighting the Odds
Born on February 12, 1980, in Bessemer, Alabama, to his parents Vicky Sean Davis and Ralph Everett Dudley, Gucci Mane’s age is 38 years. Mane had a tough childhood as his father went away to Detroit, Michigan around the time he was born, as he had been dealing in crack cocaine and heroin.
Mane’s mother also had a troubled personal life. S, Mane was brought up in an unstable household before settling down in East Atlanta, Georgia, where he attended Cedar Grove Elementary School. Mane eventually graduated from McNair High School in 1998 and attended college briefly before he was busted by the cops for possessing crack cocaine.
A Passion for Music
The one constant thing in his life was music as Mane started writing poetry and rapping at the age of 14. He released his first CD titled La Flare and followed it with the single “Black Tee”, which got him attention as a talented rapper trying to make it big. When his debut album Trap House was released to good reviews and moderate sales, Mane’s career went into overdrive. Today, Mane is known as one of the pioneers in the hip-hop sub-genre “trap music”, which has become increasingly popular among listeners.
Busting the Charts
Mane has released a dozen studio albums to date, which include Hard to Kill, Trap-A-Thon, Back to the Trap House, The State vs. Radric Davis, The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted, Everybody Looking, Mr. Davis, and El Gato: The Human Glacier. 2018 will see the release of his thirteenth studio album, The Evil Genius.
Some of the songs that have made Mane famous include “Icy,” “Freaky Gurl,” “Wasted,” “Spotlight,” “Lemonade,” “Bingo,” “Gucci Time,” “Face Card,” “In Love With a White Girl,” “Black Beatles,” and “I Get the Bag.”
Mane is so passionate about music that he released several mixtapes even while he was in prison on a gun charge! And he cashed in on those mixtapes while he was locked up, reportedly earning over $1.3 million by releasing them!
Sharing His Life’s Story
Mane kept himself busy while he was incarcerated by working on his music and writing his autobiography. He co-wrote the book titled The Autobiography of Gucci Mane along with Neil Martinez-Belkin, a former XXL Magazine editor. The book was released in September 2017 and went on to be a critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller.
A Wedding to Remember
Mane married his long-time girlfriend Keyshia Ka’oir on October 17, 2017, in a lavish ceremony, which was the talk of the town for a while! According to reports, the wedding cost the couple a whopping $1.7 million and was featured in their 10-part reality series, Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir: The Mane Event.
The Mother of All Cakes
Nothing epitomized their expensive wedding more than their wedding cake, which was over 10-feet tall! The wedding cake was made up of four double-tiered layers with crystals hanging from every section. It looked like a white chandelier and perfectly complemented the “diamonds and crystals” theme of their wedding.
The cake was so big that the couple had to use a sword with a blinged-out handle just to cut it! No wonder the Gucci Mane wedding cake cost a massive $75,000, but all guests agreed that it was well worth it. His invitations sent to all the guests cost Mane a sizeable $50,000 in all!
An Expensive Ring
It wasn’t just the wedding that was incredibly rich and awe-inspiring. Even the way Mane proposed to Ka’oir and the wedding ring he gave her made the news! Mane proposed to Ka’oir after performing at a basketball game for the Atlanta Hawks and gave her a ring that people just couldn’t stop talking about.
Ka’oir revealed on Instagram that the wedding ring was 25 carats and though she did not give it’s exact price, diamond experts pegged it to be worth between $3.0 to $5.0 million! Wow!
Launching His Own Clothing Line
Mane has his own line of clothing called “Delantic” which gets it’s name from his real middle name. Mane launched his clothing label in September 2017, and the initial reports were very encouraging. The label sells a variety of clothing such as T-shirts, hoodies, and underwear. The T-shirts were a hit for the business straight away. Some famous rappers like 21 Savage, Lil Xan, and Bhad Bhabie have modeled for his brand, and many of the shirts are priced at a reasonable $40.00 each.
A Brand Ambassador
Mane has also made a decent amount of money by endorsing several products over the years. Some of the brands he has endorsed include Delantic, Footaction, Supreme, and Reebok. Mane has also been named a brand ambassador for Reebok Classics by the sportswear company. Mane will be promoting his own sneaker line called the “Guwop” Reebok DMX Run 10, which will be all-white with metallic silver detailing.

He currently lives with his wife in a house outside Miami, Florida, which is estimated to be valued between $20.0 and $26.0 million.
It comes with a huge 100 feet swimming pool and $500,000 worth of chandeliers. It has a multi-car garage where Mane can keep his growing collection of expensive cars.

The King of Bling
