‘We Got Bamboozled’: Gucci Mane Addresses ‘Clone’ Rumors and It Backfires

Gucci Mane is letting the world know he is not a clone.

The “Icy” rapper transformed his lifestyle, health and physical appearance a few years ago which led to rumors about him being genetically cloned. Gucci and his wife Keyshia Ka’Oir denied the rumors, but folks still had their suspicions.

Last week, the “Trap God” decided to make light of the “ridiculous” conspiracy with a throwback photo of himself beside an up-to-date photo. He wrote in his Instagram caption, “Haters Gone Say U Was Cloned! 😂 🤦🏿‍♂️”

Despite Gucci poking fun at the rumors, some fans still expressed their skepticism.

“We got Bamboozled,” one fan said.

Another added, “Om god you was cloned tf is you talkin bout 😂”

A third wrote, “Not the same gucci the gov got him”

Others defended the “I Get the Bag” artist.

“They hating big time. You know what lol.. I did say that.. but I ain’t gone say it no more.. cuz this proves me wrong fa sho 😂😂my bad”

“Mfs just didn’t understand the switch up 🌻 we been rocking old and new Gucci. #Backtodatraphouse”

In 2013, Gucci began serving three years behind bars after catching a weapons charge. After getting released in 2016, he’d slimmed down and supposedly lost over 50 pounds in in prison. He would continue to change his appearance, growing out his beard and getting new veneers.

Gucci eventually addressed the clone theories in September 2018 with GQ magazine.

“In a way I feel like I grew,” he said, before saying he somewhat emphathized with fans. “I kind of morphed into a different person. Shed some of my old ways. I can say I grew up. I love the person I was, I love the person I am, and I love the person I grew to be. I tried to lose weight, I tried to take care of myself, change my thinking, my environment and associates—the ones that wasn’t benefitting me. I guess that’s the transformation everybody’s saying they can’t believe. But I can believe it.”

He continued, ” Like they say—sometimes people kind of want you to fail. They wanna see you fall. I get it. People love to see tragedy. You going through the worst things in your life—for somebody else, that’s entertainment.”
