Since his release from prison earlier this year, Gucci Mane has released two albums: Everybody Looking and Woptober. The latter actually arrived a few days earlier than it’s expected 10/17 release date, leaving that date open for La Flare to announce a third album, The Return Of East Atlanta Santa, dropping December 16th.
It’s been a big day for Gucci. First he joined Pusha T on Common’s “Black America Again (Remix).” Then he scored his first No. 1 record with Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles.” And now, he’s capping it off with a surprise project.
“Last night, me and Future met up in Atlanta,” Gucci told Miss Info. “We ditched our entourages, we didn’t book my usual studio, or his usual studio…it’s like we knew we wanted to fly under the radar. There was like this positive competition in the room. I’d hear him go in on a verse, and I knew I had to step up.
“He would say, the same back, and we knocked out 6 songs so crazy that I knew we couldn’t just sit on it. We talked about recording some more, adding more songs. But I didn’t want to over think it or over plan things. Even Future didn’t think we were dropping this tonight. This is the freshest it can get. These joints ain’t even 24 hours old. That’s like bringing you in the studio with us.”
