Gucci Mane has been sculpting talent, and promoting new artists since the beginning his career, but it's only over the last couple of years that he's been recognized as a great A&R. Part of that is because following his most recent incarceration in September 2013, we saw many of the young artists he was working with at the time earn Atlanta the title of rap's most exciting city once again.

From Young Thug and Migos, to producers like Mike WiLL Made It, Zaytoven, and Metro Boomin, Gucci has not only seen the star quality early in artists, he's helped them to become the best at what they do through his strong work ethic and undeniable ear.

Today, we're taking a look through some of Gucci's biggest co-signs, many you're probably already aware of, but others may surprise you. Click through the gallery and get in tune with the GuWop Effect.
