But shortly after changing his name, Gucci decided not to switch his moniker and will remain known as Gucci Mane.

Gooch would have been the latest in a line of emcees to publicly change their names. Snoop Dogg recently made headlines for changing his moniker to Snoop Lion, while Mos Def recently became Yasiin Bey and N.O.R.E. became P.A.P.I.
