"Bitch I Might Be" is an ambiguous retort falsely attributed to Atlanta-based rapper Gucci Mane in a photoshopped image posted to Reddit in April of 2013. The phrase is often used in text posts and image macro captions shared on the microblogging site Tumblr.


On April 10th, 2013, Gucci Mane appeared in court where he was indicted for assaulting a military soldier with a champagne bottle.[3] On April 17th, Redditor hellpony submitted a photoshopped screenshot of a local news report to the /r/Funny[2] subreddit, which changed the on-screen text to read "Rapper Gucci Mane responds with 'bitch I might be' when asked if guilty" (shown below), referencing a lyric from his 2006 single Pillz."[1] Within one month, the post accrued more than 10,300 upvotes and 360 comments.



The same day, many blogs reposted the photoshopped image trying to diffuse the truth behind the image including[4], E! Online[5], The Drop[6], Buzzfeed[7] and MTV.[8] Also on April 17th, the phrase was used on Twitter[9] more than 10,000 times.[10] By April 30th, Tumblr users were discussing[19] the popularity of the catchphrase on the microblogging site (shown below, left) and within several days began adding the phrase “bitch I might be” into quotes attributed to historical figures (shown below, right).
