Gucci Mane Is the New King of Snapchat

Gucci Mane Is the New King of Snapchat

DJ Khaled might be dethroned by Guwop.

Published June 30th

At the end of May, Gucci Mane fans got what they've been waiting for as the rapper and trapfather was released from prison after a three-year bid. But then the rest of the world got an even bigger treat shortly thereafter: Gucci Mane joined Snapchat. It's a curious case for anyone who has been devoid of technology to jump in head first and dabble with the app du jour, but Guwop seems to be loving it and mastered it rather quickly.

While DJ Khaled enjoyed the fruits of his snapping labor by becoming a life coach and motivational speaker, Gucci Mane's Snapchat (guwopsnap) is really to remind us all to love our lives — which is also inspirational in and of itself. So far on Snap he's eaten kale (a testament to his dramatic weight loss leading people to think he's been cloned), posted Game of Thrones episodes (much to the delight of his GoT loving followers), and danced to his own music (please go the other way if you think "First Day Out Tha Feds" isn't a banger).

He even gets decked out every day despite being on house arrest until the fall. Gucci approaches Snapchat with a childlike wonder; it's definitely his new toy and we're all invited to his playground. Let's check out some of the best La Flare has snapped so far, and the response from his faithful viewers.
