How did he become where he is today?
1980 – 2000
The rapper was born in Alabama on February 17, 1980. At nine years old, he moved to one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in East Atlanta and started to sell drugs.
He found his passion for hip-hop music at the age of 14 and began to rap. Mane rapped some of the best hip-hop mixtapes that put Atlanta’s trap music on the charts.
2001 – 2016
He was charged with murder in 2005. Mane and a group of his friends allegedly shot at another group of people. The rapper didn’t receive jail time because he claimed that he shot in self-defense.
Mane was charged eight years later for possessing a gun as a felon. As a result, he was offered a plea deal and spent the next two years in prison.
On May 26, 2016, Mane was released from prison. Two months later, he dropped a new fire album called, Everyday Living.
Six months later, on November 22, 2016, Mane proposed to his long-time girlfriend Keyshia Ka’Oir. Have you seen her engagement ring? It is breathtaking!
