Ever wonder how Gucci Mane stays releasing material even though he's currently sitting in a jail cell? Well, Noisey did too and they had writer Neil Martinez-Belkin get to the bottom of it. They reached out to Ronald “Caveman” Rosario—who co-executive produced Gucci's The State vs. Radric Davis II: The Caged Bird Sings and is referred to as Gucci's "money guy"—who revealed that Gucci has a wealth of material in the stash. So, Gucci just hops on the phone (from jail) with his engineer Sean Paine and together they basically cut and paste vocals Gucci recorded when he was free.
“We could drop three albums a year for the next three years and still have enough material for another three years," said Caveman, to Noisey.
However, the most interesting part of the piece is how Caveman, who is the Director of Urban Music at 101 Distribution, convinced Gucci that he was giving money away to sites like LiveMixtapes and got him to start selling his projects online. Caveman goes on to claim that Gucci netted "about 1.3 million" by releasing nine Gucci Mane projects and three 1017 projects in 2013.
Last December, Gucci was charged in federal court on two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon. If he's convicted he could face up to 20 years in prison.
