Gucci Mane’s 2 Billboards Milestones in a Single Week
American rapper and Trap artist Gucci Mane recently achieved two new Billboard chart milestones in the last week of August. “I Get the Bag,” his latest single landed at No. 34 in the Hot 100, Mane’s highest debut and career peak.

The single is No. 11 on both Rap Streaming Songs and Hot Rap Songs.
The initial momentum of “I Get the Bag” indicates Mane’s potentials, opening the possibilities that it will match or surpass his best received albums. His “Everybody Looking” album debuted at No. 2 in 2016 on Billboard 200, reaching 68,000 in sales. In 2010, his “The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted” made it to No. 4 on the Top 10 chart, while his “The State Versus Radric Davis” landed No. 10 in 2009, and even reaching the gold status of RIAA in 2016.
From the upcoming album Mr. Davis, “I Get the Bag” references its title to Mane’s real name, Radric Davis. Rap trio Migos who have been collaborating with Davis appear in the song. The song is set to be out on September 15 through Atlantic, and the album that contains it will offer 17 tracks that feature Big Sean, Young Dolph and The Weeknd among others.
The Mr. Davis album also includes the “Make Love” track, a collaboration with Nicki Minaj which landed at No. 78 on Hot 100. Another track, “Tone It Down” with Chris Brown spent eight weeks at No. 24 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay.
Gucci Mane’s Sauce Quote
Gucci Mane has been noted by many of his fans with regard to his comments about “sauce.” Some of his followers interpreted “sauce” as confidence or fashion sense. They saw Mane saying you have to acquire it, since we are not born with it. However, we do not need to be rich to have it. Sauce can also refer to confidence acquired from personal success. Gucci Mane sauce quote “lost in the sauce” could mean over confidence, losing humility or forgetting yourself.
“Meat” was seen as the people around you who give false confidence, as in Gucci Mane’s “no meat, just sauce” phrase. The artist may have referred to over confident people who do not have substance. The rapper’s statement can be applied to life’s many aspects. Sauce can also point to the style or fashion materials like shoes, while the meat refers to the people who bring you up.
Gucci Mane’s Fashion
Speaking about fashion, Gucci Mane is also making waves in such space. A very notable feat is him popularizing the ice cream t-shirt, which is said to captivate the artist in a nutshell. Perfect for Mane’s hip hop followers, the shirt is great to be worn in one of his concerts, or simply as a casual everyday wear. The popular unisex Gucci Mane ice ice cream shirt is available in In Color Apparel for less than $20. Aside from music and fashion, Mane is likewise recognized with his ice cream tattoo in the face that says “Brrr.”
The tattoo on the right side of Mane’s face, a three-scooped ice cream with the word “Brrr” across appeared all over the internet in 2011. As such tattoo made rounds on the internet, people were shocked and confused what it meant, considering the music artist already had lots of ink on his body and face.
It was when his spokesperson Kali Bowyer explained it meant the rapper chose to live his life as cool as ice, Rolling Stone reported. Since Mane was so cool or icy, he could make people say “Brrr.” The ice cream cone also represented a medallion the rapper has worn for long.
A Good Year For Gucci
Year 2017 has been a good year for the music artist from Atlanta. Over the past six months, he led or was featured in 10 various charting singles on Hot 100. That includes his appearances in smash hits like “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd, “Fetish” by Selena Gomez and “Down” by Fifth Harmony. Gomez’ and Fifth Harmony’s works peaked at No. 27 and No. 42 on the list, respectively. With Mane’s prolific recording history, it seems to be possible that he will have another full-length release before the end of this year.
