Featured Gucci Mane stories

Someone on Twitter (and I wish I could remember who) pointed out a fascinating factoid recently: Every time Gucci Mane goes away to prison — something that happens way too often — one of his 1017 Brick Squad understudies blows the fuck up. First, it was OJ Da Juiceman. Then, it was Waka Flocka Flame. More »

Last year, there was one album — Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City — that united virtually the entire rap-listening public in adoration. This year, no such luck. Many heard my #1 pick of the year (and you can probably already guess what it is) as the work of a sonic visionary, and plenty more… More »

No less than a month ago, Tom had this to say about Gucci Mane’s 2013 output so far: “[He] has always been happy to absolutely fuck up our collective music-listening schedules. ‘Prolific’ just isn’t a sufficient word anymore. I am not exaggerating for effect when I say that I’ve lost count of how many mixtape… More »

Fetty Wap – “Trap Queen (Remix)” (Feat. Azealia Banks, Quavo, & Gucci Mane)

Plenty of people idolize Fetty Wap’s exuberant druggy jam “Trap Queen,” so why shouldn’t it get a remix featuring Quavo of Migos, prolific and jail-bound Gucci Mane, and the ever-controversial Azealia Banks? “Trap Queen” is 18 months old after all, a song that rose from SoundCloud to release by Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment and currently… More »

Jeremih – “Money Do” (Feat. Gucci Mane)

“I don’t like to show off but my money do.” How can anyone on earth pretend that Gucci Mane isn’t a genius? While the whole R&B-loving world waits for Jeremih to drop his oft-delayed Late Nights album, he continues to make music with unlikely collaborators like Bobby Brackins, Flo Rida, and now Gucci Mane. Though… More »

Diplo And Gucci Mane Are Making An Album Together

Gucci Mane has been in prison since May. He isn’t really working on anything besides maybe “not being in prison anymore.” But whoever is in charge of Gucci’s music has been busy. Since he went away to prison, we’ve had a steady stream of Gucci releases, presumably made up of music he banked before getting… More »

Stream Gucci Mane Dessert EP

Gucci Mane has been incarcerated since June, but he left behind so many songs in the vault that it’s still impossible to keep up with all his music. Last week, Gucci — or his handlers, anyway — released three brand-new albums — Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner — on the same day. Today, he followed them… More »

Stream Gucci Mane Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Gucci Mane has been in prison on a gun charge since last May, but he left so much music in the vault that he’s still been cranking out new music steadily. In fact, incarcerated Gucci is more prolific than just about any actually-free rapper. It’s gotten to the point, in fact, where we don’t eve… More »

Stream Gucci Mane Views From Zone 6 EP

Atlanta overlord Gucci Mane might be behind bars, but that sure as hell won’t stop him from trolling the rap game when it needs it. Last week the hip-hop world collectively lost its shit over Drake’s very good new mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. But for a long time he’s been trumpeting… More »

Gucci Mane & Young Thug – “Down On That”

The fact that Gucci Mane is in jail hasn’t slowed his output down at all, as his Brick Squad team continues to faithfully release new music from the prolific rapper.

Gucci Mane – “Dead People” (Feat. Raury)

The teenage Georgia polyglot Raury has already turned OutKast and Kanye West into admirers, and now he’s teamed with Gucci Mane on Gucci’s new song “Dead People.” It sounds a lot more like Gucci’s trademark tripped-out trap music than the folk/soul/hip-hop genre mash Raury showed off on Indigo Child, and in fact Raury’s contribution here… More »

Chief Keef – “Paper” (Feat. Gucci Mane)

Chicago drill overlord Chief Keef may have lost his label deal, but when he gets together, he will still be a force on the mixtape underground.

Gucci Mane Gets More Prison Time

Atlanta rap weirdo-overlord Gucci Mane has spent a lot of time in prison over the past few years, and now it looks like he’s not getting out anytime soon.

Stream Gucci Mane’s Albums With Young Thug, Migos, PeeWee Longway

Atlanta rap trailblazer Gucci Mane is in prison now for firearm possession, and he’ll be locked up until 2016. This will not keep him from releasing new music.

One of rap’s big stories in 2014 has been flamboyant eccentric Young Thug and his rise to the top of the Atlanta rap heap.

The troubled Atlanta rap eminence Gucci Mane showed up on a couple of tracks form Y.R.N., the breakout mixtape from the ascendant rap trio Migos, and Migos showed up on “Jackie Chain,” a track from Gucci’s kinda-sad recent The State Vs. Radric Davis II album. And now that Gucci is in jail and looking at… More »
