After his early release from prison in May, the Atlanta MC came home noticeably slimmer and more dedicated to living a healthy, active lifestyle, posting his morning cardio workouts on Snapchat. What's more, fans have noticed an improved clarity in his speech, as well as a lack of his signature ice cream tattoo.
The rumour was started by satirical site ThingsUThink, which posted a fake Lil Boosie interview from The Breakfast Club in which he claims Guwop is a clone after all. The rapper hasn't made an appearance on the radio show at all this calendar year so far.
But with people believing everything they read online, a few conspiracy theorists let the Internet know how they felt.

Others thankfully had some more sensible reactions to the theory.

Only reason they saying gucci a clone is because they tryna distract us from the fact J Cole went double platinum with no features— Mr.Miyagi (@BrokeHomieLarry) June 22, 2016
I love Gucci Clone. Just another chapter in one of the most fruitful, wacky, influential and fascinating rap careers of all time. Amazing.— Andrew Barber (@fakeshoredrive) June 22, 2016
On top of all that, the man himself will neither confirm or deny the reports.

We'll let you be the judge of this one. Whatever you believe, take a listen to Gucci's "First Day Out the Feds" and celebrate his freedom here.
