Nearly two decades into his music career, Gucci Mane is known as one of the greatest rappers in the music industry and has many BET Award nominations to prove it.

In addition to the handful of albums that he has released over the years, Gucci seems to hold the record for the rapper with the most mixtapes, with over 50 under his belt.

That being said, here are his four most memorable so far.

4. "Chicken Talk" (2006)

Arguably one of Gucci's best mixtapes was one of his first, "Chicken Talk." Because this was very early on in his music career, the project did not feature a ton of features, but it did have two songs with verses from Yo Gotti ("Work Ya Wrist" and "How Hood Is This?").

It didn't reach the success of his other works, however, the 25-track mixtape laid the foundation for Gucci's rap skills and his ability to still hold down a mixtape mostly on his own, which is very impressive.

3. "The Burrprint" (2009)

"The Burrprint (The Movie 3D)" was a turning point in Gucci Mane's music career. Not only was it more of a silly/carefree take on his usual projects, but it features tons of amazing collabs, some of which say are his best yet.

The lineup of the mixtape in terms of collabs included everyone from iconic rapper Waka Flocka Flame and Kandi Burruss from the popular girl group Xscape.

Months later, Gucci Mane went back to jail on the basis of driving on the wrong side of the road and was reportedly pepper sprayed by the police to be able to detain him.

2. "Trap House III" (2013)

This project served as the third installment of the music artist's "Trap House" series and achieved great success. It even appeared on Billboard's US 200 Chart, yet it almost never happened because of a major technical issue with iTunes.

"They said that some of the files we had sent to them was corrupted, so it was some sort of technical error. They apologized for it. I don’t think they did it on purpose, ‘cause they get a percentage of that too. So it was unfortunate, but it’s the No. 3 album on iTunes right now," Gucci explained to XXL.

This was also one of the last mixtapes Gucci Mane released before he was sentenced to prison in September 2013.

He served time as the result of several different charges, including possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm as a convicted felon.

1. "The Return of East Atlanta Santa" (2016)

Last, but certainly not least, is "The Return of East Atlanta Santa." Gucci Mane released this mixtape only seven months after he was released from prison.

This project is one of the rapper's most successful yet, especially after achieving the honor of becoming Gold-certified, which means that it sold 500,000 copies (at least). These four are just a handful of how many mixtapes Gucci has out there. Which is your personal favorite?

He went on to release two more, with "East Atlanta Santa 3" dropping in 2019 and featuring rappers Quavo and Rich The Kid.
