Gucci Mane’s Legal Problems Keep Him From Performing At North Carolina A&T University Homecoming Concert

Well looks like even the fame is not big enough to overcome legal issues. Gucci Mane was supposed to be on the line-up of stars to perform at North Carolina’s AT&T Homecoming concert and was banned due to legal issues. This is not a good look as he has been on a really big buzz and not being allowed to perform out of his home state (Georgia) is making him miss out on a lot of shows and money. The concert went on as planned, with acts such as Nicki Minaj, Keri Hilson, Trey Songz, Fabolous, Mario, GS Boyz and FLY picking up the slack.
