Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir are considered one of the strongest power couples in the rap game, right now.

Settin’ The Record Straight:
Although many parts of Gucci and Keyshia’s life played out on their BET reality series The Mane Event, there’s still alot fans don’t know about Keyshia. Now, she’s shedding light on it all. “Gucci always says, ‘It’s crazy how of a great businesswoman you are, and how successful you are.'” She continued, “People don’t know this. They get a glimpse of it, but they don’t really know how I run my business. My friends were all like, you can’t wear blue lipstick because people will make fun of you. I ignored them, because I’m always a unique person and I want to be over the edge.”
Back in the day, Keyshia may not have been as well-known as she is now, but many rap fans know she definitely had a distinctive look. She was always the model “with the mohawk and the blue lipstick.” That signature look is what opened many professional doors for her. “No one knew my name, no one knew who I was, but everyone wanted to be the girl with the mohawk and the blue lipstick. I had to come up with my own makeup line, starting with that blue lipstick. It now retails for $17.99. If you see someone back in 2010 with blue, yellow, green lipstick, I knew it was my brand. It was successful because it was different. You couldn’t get it from anywhere else.”
In a matter of just six months, Keyshia’s business skyrocketed. She’d made so much money, she was able to purchase her first Rolls Royce. She admitted the moment was a pivotal point in her career and it even brother tears to her eyes. “When I bought it, I cried, and I don’t cry for nothing.”
The Supportive Husband:
Now, after more than 10 years in the game, Keyshia has continued to expand her businesses. She’s gone from selling hair and cosmetics to fitness. So what does Gucci have to say about his woman’s success? Keyshia has admitted that he’s a strong support system only pushing her to reach new heights. Since they both want so much out of life, the money definitely has to keep flowin’. “Gucci is an amazing husband because he supports me. A lot of men are intimidated by successful women. Not him, though. He wants me to shine. He wants me to be successful. At least, it’ll have him save more of his money if I’ve got money, right? Because I’m an expensive wife.”
Congratulations to Keyshia Ka’oir and Gucci Mane.
