Gucci Mane -- the rapper who tattooed an ice cream cone on his face and decided to change his name to Guwop and then decided not to half an hour later -- slept through his somewhat epic "Spring Breakers" sex scene. And yes, that sentence means exactly what it says.
Director Harmony Korine revealed the production nugget in an interview with Vulture:
"So we’re shooting the sequence, and as he is getting f--ked, I start to hear snores," said Korine. "He had literally passed out! And she was riding his dick the whole time. I’d never in my life filmed a sex scene where the dude was sleeping … and she was on top of him for a good 45 minutes."
Korine says marijuana was to blame. The folks in Mane's entourage apparently smoke all day, so by the time the sex scene was being shot (around four in the morning), it was pretty much a wrap.
UPDATE: Vulture also got Gucci himself on the phone to verify the details of the sexual slumber party. The rapper confirmed that he did, in fact, take a nap during the raunchy scene:
Yes, I was knocked out. I was tired. I had a concert down there in St. Petersburg, one of the days I had to shoot a scene. Same time, same night. We started shooting at ten o'clock in the evening until one or two o'clock. I was extremely tired because Harmony would work for almost 48 hours straight, I think. Even though Harmony is a close friend and a great director, he's a hard boss. Make sure you put that in bold letters.
He also cleared up another question: The sex in the scene was simulated ("They just wouldn't let me. It was simulated, but, you know, I wish it wasn't.").

"Spring Breakers" caught fire at the box office, where it earned enough last week to become the year's highest-grossing limited release film. The movie is also teaming up with Opening Ceremony for a clothing line.
But box office figures aside, did Mane ever wake up? Eventually, Korine says the "I'm So Icy" rapper came to: "At the end, he woke up and was like, 'I feel real nice. I feel like Mozart’s on my dick.' And that was it, and he went back to sleep."
