Atlanta’s very own ice cream cone tattoo enthusiast, Gucci Mane, will sprinkle some serious trap magic on a whole new stage. Brace yourselves for an unprecedented mashup as Gucci Mane teams up with the Atlanta Pops Orchestra for a performance that promises to be icier than a freezer full of 1017 records.

Trap Meets Symphony: A Historic Night

Mark your calendars for October 12th because Gucci is set to take over the Atlanta Symphony Hall. “ATL! I hear you’ve been asking for this one, so I’m coming home to give it to you,” Gucci declared, probably while counting his diamond-encrusted bracelets. He added, “Join me at Atlanta Symphony Hall on Saturday, October 12 as I perform my hits for the 1st Time Ever with an orchestra. Don’t Hesitate! East Atlanta Stand Up! #TheRoadTo1017.”

Best-Dressed Contest: Dress to Impress

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any cooler, Gucci’s throwing down a cash prize for the best-dressed man and woman at the show. So, dust off those tuxedos and ball gowns – or maybe just your finest Gucci Mane-inspired fits.

The Trap King’s Symphony Saga: Background on Gucci Mane

Radric Delantic Davis, better known to the world as Gucci Mane, isn’t just a name in the Atlanta music scene—he’s an institution. Since the early 2000s, Gucci has been dropping bangers and setting trends like it’s his day job (which, let’s be real, it kind of is).

Gucci Mane, the man who made it cool to rock an ice cream cone tattoo on his face, has been the pioneering force behind the trap music genre. With over 13 studio albums and a mixtape collection that could fill a library, Gucci has solidified his spot as one of hip-hop’s most prolific figures. His 2005 debut, Trap House, was the key that unlocked the door to the trap kingdom.

But it was his 2009 album, The State vs. Radric Davis, that launched him into the stratosphere, giving him the mainstream success that every artist dreams of. Not to mention Trap God, Trap God 2, Trap God 3, Writing on the Wall, Wilt Chamberlain 5-6, World War 3: Lean, World War 3: Molly, and Track Back 2.

Gucci’s influence doesn’t stop at music. He’s a fashion icon, an entrepreneur, and a cultural phenomenon. Whether he’s collaborating with top designers or launching his own ventures, Gucci Mane’s name carries weight. His distinct style has made waves far beyond the rap game, cementing his legacy in pop culture.

Song Suggestions for the Symphony Set


This track is as classic Gucci as it gets. From his 2009 album, The State vs. Radric Davis, “Lemonade” is a masterclass in Gucci’s unique flow and signature sound. It’s the kind of song that makes you want to ride around in a candy-colored car, dripping in swag.

“I Get the Bag” (featuring Migos)

From his 2017 album, Mr. Davis, this track shows off Gucci’s knack for killer collaborations. With Migos in tow, “I Get the Bag” is a testament to Gucci’s staying power and his ability to evolve with the times while keeping it 100% Gucci.

“Wasted” (featuring Plies)

An anthem for anyone who’s ever had a night out that’s one for the books. This track from The State vs. Radric Davis will have the symphony hall feeling like the hottest club in ATL.

“First Day Out Tha Feds”

Gucci’s triumphant return to the game after his release from prison in 2016. This track is pure fire and shows that even after a hiatus, Gucci Mane didn’t lose a step.

“Both” (featuring BBL Drizzy)

A smooth, hard-hitting track from his album The Return of East Atlanta Santa. Featuring the 69 God himself, this song will blend perfectly with a symphony’s lush instrumentation.

“Freaky Gurl”

A classic from Hard to Kill, this track is quintessential early Gucci, showcasing his playful yet gritty style. Imagine those iconic lines delivered with a symphonic twist. Listen here. 

So there you have it—a deep dive into the life and legacy of the Trap King himself. And with a symphony backing him up, you know Gucci Mane’s about to take this to a whole new level.
