He’s released six studio albums and several hit songs during his career. Radric Davis, better known as Gucci Mane, is an Alabama football fan. Wale has joined ranks with him, especially with his tweet on Tuesday to social media. The 2013 Grammy Award nominee said he was coming to Tuscaloosa to get some Crimson Tide gear. He’s been in Alabama for three days, but Wale is sporting the Roll Tide.

After coming up short versus Georgia in the CFP National Championship Game, Nick Saban and the Tide look to return to the big stage and finish the job. Alabama begins spring practice on Friday.
