Tuesday Wednesday: Gucci Mane at the Observatory
Things are about to get really ratchet in Santa Ana. If there's one thing to know about the current trap music phenomenon, it's that Gucci Mane is the coldest motherfucker in the game. Or, at least the craziest. Dude got an ice cream cone tattooed on his face. So when we heard he was making the trip out to the Observatory this Friday, we wondered whether the building could withstand the ungodly amount of ass-twerking, 808 clapping insanity he's about to bring with him. On stage, he might not move around too much, but songs like "Icy" and "Supa Cocky" have a sole purpose of causing bonfide freakouts in the crowd. But there's much more to Atlanta's insane, ice-wearing enigma than meets the eye. This tortured genius combines the old school gangsta mentality of Rick Ross, the Internet saturation of Lil B and the lyrical lunacy of 2Chainz.
Since 2005, the rapper born Radric Devonte Davis has made a sport of turning dance floors into sweaty, writhing dens of Southern style debauchery. If you haven't started polishing your platinum grills and ironing your fresh white tees, we suggest you do so. And for those of you who don't have your tickets yet we just might be able to help you out with a pair of free ones. Find out how to get 'em after the jump.
