Gucci Mane Stars in New Gucci Ad Campaign
After years of rocking the luxury apparel, Gucci Mane has been tapped by Gucci to appear in an ad campaign.
On Tuesday (Oct. 1), the Atlanta legend jumped on his Instagram account to announce that he was one of the faces of a new collection from the luxury clothing brand. To support the brand's new Gucci Cruise20 Collection, Guwop posted a gallery of photos shot by filmmaker Harmony Korine. The gallery includes images of the rapper taking a bubble bath and showing off some shoes while flashing his 1,000-watt smile. In another photo, GuWop is rocking an elaborately patterned tracksuit.
"Proud to announce my #GucciCruise20 Collection with @gucci!!! Yo @alessandro_michele this collection is crazy ! #HarmonyKorine dope visuals! #ComeAsYouAre_RSVP campaign for the #GucciCruise20 Collection ITS GUCCI!!!!!!!!!!!!" he wrote in the caption.
The accompanying video features Gucci playing the piano at a lively party that included partygoers punk icon Iggy Pop and actress Sienna Miller. There's no official word on when the apparel will hit stores.
The new Gucci ad campaign arrived two days after Gucci Mane unveiled the cover art for his upcoming album Woptober II. The project, which is a sequel to his 2016 project Woptober, will arrive at digital streaming platforms on Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. PST. His last project was this past June's Delusions of Grandeur.
