Gucci Mane, also known as Guwop, is an OG trap artist in the game. Gucci could push out four mixtapes at a time while incarcerated and not bat an eye, then get released from prison and release an album. The man just doesn't quit, which is probably why Gucci decided he wanted to be referred to as "The Machine." His work ethic is off the charts, and his projects top the charts, so there's no doubt why he has to perform at this year's Hip Hop Awards!
