When Gucci Mane cranks out way more (excellent) free music than anyone could reasonably be expected to process, it might seem a bit weird when he makes a new mixtape and actually asks people to pay for it. But Gucci’s new Trap House III is probably the best of the many full-lengths he’s released this year, and it’s definitely the weirdest, full of bizarre little synthy circus fanfares and convoluted singsong rhyme schemes. It’s the first tape Gucci’s made since his recent split with Waka Flocka Flame, and replacing Flocka’s anarchic energy, we’ve got sly earwormy sing-raps from Atlanta up-and-comers like Yung Thug and Rich Homie Quan, which makes for an intriguing switch. If Gucci was giving this one away for free, it’d be a lock for Mixtape Of The Week next week. As it is, $6 doesn’t seem like too much to ask. But judge for yourself; Trap House III is streaming below.
If you’re so inclined, buy Trap House III at Gucci’s Bandcamp.
