Gucci Mane Starts a Mixtape Cold War (Audio)

blame it on Shake October 16, 2009

For the fans of Gucci Mane out there, I advise you be around a computer tomorrow (October 17th) at 10:17pm as he’s partnering up with DJ Drama, DJ Scream & DJ Holiday for a three-part mixtape.

“Gucci wants to flood the streets, takeover,” DJ Holiday said. “The mixtape is called The Cold War, and it’ll be a three-part series, [subtitled] Guccimerica, Great Brrritain and BurrRussia. They’re droppin’ Saturday at 10:17 p.m.”

So why all the 10-17 references? According to Holiday, it’s the name of the apartment building where Gucci grew up and the name of his new label. Holiday has the DJ duties for BurrRussia, while Scream is commandeering Great Brrritain and Drama is handling Guccimerica.

“All the covers will coincide with each other and go together like a puzzle,” Holiday added. “Eventually, we’ll put out one big CD with 30 songs.”

Gucci has 10 new songs on each mixtape of the series, Holiday explained. And it seems like Gucci’s time in the studio does not stop. He just dropped a mixtape with DJ Drama called The Burrprint (The Movie 3-D) with all-new material last weekend. Shawty Lo also revealed that around Halloween, he and Gucci are putting out a mixtape called Fright Night.

Now this would be pretty dope, if it were an artist I actually listened to.
