Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir are arguably the embodiment of a modern day hip-hop fairy tale. The two have been through considerable trials as a couple and stuck together throughout. Gucci took to his Instagram to remind us that theirs is not an ordinary relationship, but a regal one – and we’re not mad.
Most may not be aware of the fact his other half, Ka’oir, gained notoriety long before her relationship with Guwop, for making moves as a businesswoman. She launched and operated businesses in the fitness, wellness and beauty fields, acting as the CEO. Their relationship began shortly after Gucci spotted Ka’oir in a magazine while doing a stint in jail in 2010. She told Fader that Gucci, “called [his manager] Amina from jail, and he was like, “Who is Keyshia Ka’oir? I want to meet this girl.” He was like, “I’m getting out soon, I need her for my next video, you have to find her!”
Shortly after his release, and after much persistence from Gucci’s camp, Keyshia agreed to be in a music video for the rapper. When they first met, it was reportedly “love on sight.” Throughout his various arrests and prison sentences, Keyshia has remained by Gucci’s side and the two can be seen attending many a ball game or high profile event looking fresh to death.
We see you Wopsters, we see you.
