Southern rappers Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame will light up television screens in the near future with plans to launch a reality series.
According to Gucci Mane, they will provide viewers with an inside look at their lifestyles.
The yet to be titled program will give viewers an intimate look at the behind-the-scene lives of two of rap’s biggest names. “We show everyday life. What we get into in studio and at our shows. We just ordinary people with a crazy Rock ‘N’ Roll lifestyle,” Gucci told RumorFix exclusively. “Because of the music we make, people think that’s what we do all the time — but we got a real family life. We got heart. We do a lot of things for the community and we love each other,” the Atlanta rapper continued. (RumorFix)
Waka’s mother/manager, Debra Antney, will also be involved on the untitled show.
Gucci tells RumorFix he hopes the show helps people getting a better understanding of him and his best friend. “I think they’ll get a laugh more than anything. I’m not serious all the time. People think we are thugs because of our music.” Waka Flocka’s mother, Debra Antney, will also star in the show, that if picked up, will air on BET. (RumorFix)
Last week, Gucci made headlines after showing off a new ice cream cone face tattoo.
Rapper Gucci Mane, 30, revealed his latest tattoo today (January 13)–an ice cream cone located on his right cheek–causing many fans to question the reasoning behind the artwork. Kali Bowyer, Gucci’s spokesperson, spoke to Rolling Stone about the meaning of the image. “It’s a reminder to fans of how he chooses to live his life,” she said. “Cool as ice. As in ‘I’m so icy, I’ll make ya say Brr.'” Bowyer also said the design was inspired by a medallion that Gucci has worn for years. (XXL Mag)
On a more serious note, Waka Flocka recently posted bail after being arrested earlier this month on drug/gun-related charges in Georgia.
Waka Flocka Flame was released from custody Wednesday (January 5) after turning himself in for an array of weapons and drug charges earlier this week.
