But the area where he was living was not at all friendly, but a place with a high crime rate. And this is how the American rap artist landed in the wrong company when he got involved in dealing with drugs during his school days. Whatever the money Gucci collected for Christmas eve, he used it for purchasing the cocaine and sold it to others.
He did fall into the wrong company, but he was good at studies in school and was much famous among his peer group. Despite being involved in drugs, there came a time when Gucci put himself aloof from its dealing for some years. During the 90s, he had been active in drug selling for two years.
But one day he was robbed at gunpoint while he was on his bicycle. After this incident, he started carrying a handgun with him.
