14. The Mentor: Gucci Mane. The Protégé: Waka Floka Flame.
Gucci Mane and Wake Floka have a volatile relationship. Friends since the age of 19, Gucci taught Waka how to rap, and promoted his music. He was a mentor in every sense of the word, but when Mane's career began to fizzle out due to jail time and stints in rehab, Waka Flocka took over. A ton of troubles have followed, including Gucci dropping Waka Flocka from his label. And now the two are from friends. Picture: Getty
