Gucci Mane Draws Praise for ‘Best Glow Up’ In Hip-Hop

Rapper Gucci Mane is clearly feeling himself these days.

Since touting his 100-pound weight loss to the world, the “Tone It Down” rapper has been showing off his cut upper body nonstop, and fans don’t seem to have a problem with it. As a matter of fact, the artist has been showered with compliments by social media on his before and after shots.

Gucci took to Instagram on Wednesday evening with a photo of himself before his weight loss beside an image of his new and improved slim physique. He wrote in his caption of his bulging belly “Stop playing Wit Me 🛑 #BigWop #wopwednesdays.”

The “Met Gala” artist said he’s lost a total of 100 pounds from eating clean and exercising. He told his supporters in an Instagram post earlier this month that if he could it then anybody can.

“For people who ain’t in shape, people who ain’t healthy, people need some inspiration. I was 290 pounds, now I’m a 190 pounds. I lost 100 pounds,” he said in an IG video recorded by his wife Keyshia Ka’Oir. “So check this out: You can do it if I can do it. Use me for inspiration, ’cause I’m seeing a lot of y’all, and y’all look terrible.

Gucci reportedly dropped 50 pounds by the time he was released from prison in 2016, serving three years for felony gun and drug charges. He has since dropped 50 more pounds.
