Gucci Mane openly admits to having second thoughts about his iconic ice cream face tattoo. In a recent candid interview with The Morning Hustle, he peeled back the layers of his decision-making process, revealing he was navigating a particularly challenging period in his life.
While Gucci refrains from claiming credit for initiating the trend, he acknowledges that he played a pivotal role in making facial inkings appear appealing to a wider audience. He reflected, “I wouldn’t take credit for starting the trend, but I think I definitely made people think it was something cool to do. I was going through something when I did it. If I could do it over again, I probably wouldn’t have [done] it.” He went on to explain, “People don’t know the backstory to that. I wasn’t in a healthy place at the time. That was just a sporadic thing I did.”
These remarks coincide with the release of Gucci’s latest album, "Breath of Fresh Air." In an earlier discussion with Streetz Atlanta, he highlighted how this project serves as a snapshot of his personal growth throughout the years. "I wanted to put out an album to be a time capsule of where I’m at in my life right now, so I can look back at it 10 years from now,” he shared. “I was like, ‘This gon’ be the discography of Gucci in 2023, with my little girl and my boy.’ So now when I look back 10 years from now, I say, ‘Okay, this where I was at.' That’s where [the title] Breath of Fresh Air [comes from]. Like, take your time, enjoy your family and just express that instead of talking about — not even the same stuff I talk about — but the same stuff I hear people talk about.”
