Gucci Mane recently sat down for an interview with GQ and he addressed theories that he is a clone after being released from jail.

The Atlanta rapper admitted that while he does seem like a different person, he’s not a clone. Gucci explained, “In a way I feel like I grew. I kind of morphed into a different person. Shed some of my old ways. I can say I grew up. I love the person I was, I love the person I am, and I love the person I grew to be. I tried to lose weight, I tried to take care of myself, change my thinking, my environment and associates—the ones that wasn’t benefitting me. I guess that’s the transformation everybody’s saying they can’t believe. But I can believe it.”

During the interview, Gucci also touched on his influence in the hip-hop world, stating, “I’m secure in my influence. I’m proud of what I did for the culture. I know I touched a lot of artists directly, and I know I influenced a whole different generation of artists—to feel like they’re proud, to say, I’ma get in the studio and I’m just gonna rock out. Do it my way. And people gonna love it. That’s what Gucci did.”
