Best of the Best 2010 Spotlight: Gucci Mane

Welcome back, Gucci Mane. The Alabama-born, Atlanta-based trap rapper's songs are full of street swagger and sordid tales, and his latest series of personal misfortunes back it all up as reality. While he finally scored a major deal with Warner Bros. last year, his celebration period would be short-lived. Late last year, Gucci Mane was sentenced to a 12-month prison stint for violating probation on an earlier assault conviction. Still, while Mane was away, singles like "Wasted," "Spotlight," and "Lemonade" only continued to gain heat. Released just this past May 12, he finds himself now both a free man and a bona fide star. His appearance at Best of the Best marks his first major concert since his release.

Best of the Best 2010. With Diddy, DJ Khaled, Gucci Mane, Capleton, Barrington Levy, and others. 1 p.m. Sunday, May 30. Bicentennial Park, 1075 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. Tickets currently cost $54 and up; children under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult. 305-438-9488; bestofthebestconcert.com
