Throughout his career, Gucci Mane has always taken new artists under his wing. Waka Flocka Flame, Young Thug, and Young Dolph are just a few of the artists who have received some form of mentorship from Gucci, and it seems he's taken on a new protege in Playboi Carti.
Posting to Instagram Sunday, Gucci Mane shared a photo of himself and Carti with the caption: "I just want to be a better mentor to these talented new artists." He tagged the post "PlayboiLaflare," which sounds like it could be a great joint mixtape title somewhere down the line.
Playboi Carti was recently arrested following an incident in which he allegedly grabbed his girlfriend by the backpack and pulled her out of an airport terminal. He will not face charges. As someone who has made an effort to change his lifestyle for the better following run-ins with the law, Gucci could potentially be a positive influence on the rapper.
