MTV Names Gucci Mane Mixtape Artist of the Year
Even though Gucci has been locked up for some bullshit probation violation you could hear him on every radio station and on every mixtape. From Prison Gucci made a statement "It always feels good to be recognized by the streets," Gucci told MTV this week from jail. "That's where I come from, that's where I draw my music from. That's my inspiration. It also feels good be recognized by MTV, [being someone] coming from the streets."
Others to be honored with mixtape honors by MTV included Drake, who won Mixtape of the Year for So Far Gone, while 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and Lupe Fiasco were all runners up; and DJ Drama earned Mixtape DJ of the Year.
