Despite being known to cosign anyone, Gucci wasn't having it this time.

One thing that rap fans have consistently associated with Gucci Mane is his willingness to cosign just about anybody. That comes from the amount of shoutouts and occasionally actual collaborations that nearly any rapper can get with Gucci. But that was clearly put to the test recently. During a media appearance, a fan tried to rap for him but got unfortunately shut down. Though the clip is pretty short and doesn't show much, the major beats of the interaction are clear.

Fans in the comments reacted a few different ways. Some cracked jokes as Gucci's willingness to back almost anyone. "I’ll be mad because Gucci just be signing anybody too whatchu mean you ain’t trynna hear me," one of the top comments on the post reads. Others expressed sympathy for the rapper trying to show off his skills. The top comment on the post compares him to another famous rapper who was overlooked at first. "Remember they ignored Kanye, don’t give up, keep going buddy," the comment reads. Check out the full video and various fan reactions below.
