Stream Gucci Mane Trap House III

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 thi… More »

The Gucci Mane & Waka Flocka Flame Beef Is Apparently On

Amidst all the news and conjecture about Lil Wayne's health, another major rap story is exploding tonight. Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame -- friends, frequent collaborators for years, and partners in the 1017 Brick Squad crew -- are apparently embarking on what could be a bitter feud. More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Gucci Mane & Young Scooter Free Bricks 2

Earlier this week, for about half an hour, Gucci Mane officially changed his name to Guwop, announcing the change on his Twitter: "Thanks Fans, for 8 years as Gucci now it's Wop turn." It didn't last long because Gucci's fans' predictable Twitter freakout changed his mind, and Guwop became Gucci again. As bursts of lamentable… More »

Stream The Spring Breakers Soundtrack

After the video for Trinidad James's "All Gold Everything (Remix)" was released, Tom took to the Twitterverse to assist him in uncovering the identity of the "dreadlocked crustpunk-looking dude standing next to Young Jeezy." The guy in the video is rapper White from Jeezy's label CTE. We know this because the person who gave… More »

Download Gucci Mane & Young Scooter Free Bricks 2 Mixtape

A couple of months into the year, it's becoming increasingly apparent that Atlanta's 1017 Bricksquad crew are pretty much determined to dominate the street-rap landscape. Since the year started, we've already heard strong mixtapes from Young Scooter, Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, and Young Thug. (Maybe there was a Wooh Da… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Gucci Mane Trap God 2

Real talk: There have been more good mixtapes than good albums in 2013. I don't know that there's been a single out-and-out classic, but every week I have to make a seriously difficult decision when I pick a single tape for this column, and this week was harder than most. Iamsu! and Problem, maybe the… More »

Download Gucci Mane Trap God 2 Mixtape

Last year, after spending way too long in the drug-haze-and-prison-time wilderness, a reawakened Gucci Mane released three mixtapes, and all of them were pretty good. The most recent of those was October's Trap God, and last night, Gucci released its sequel. Trap God 2 has appearances from Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Waka Flocka Flame,… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Gucci Mane Trap God

Knee-jerk Gucci Mane haters, I am no longer talking to you. Three-plus years after Gucci's still-staggering 2009 breakout, if you're still unwilling to concede the mere possibility that Radric Davis is good at making rap music, I can't do a thing for you. I'm sorry. Your life is not as fun as my life, and… More »

Gucci Mane – “Crazy” (Feat. Waka Flocka Flame) Video (NSFW)

Obviously, if Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame are going to release a video on Halloween, they're going to go all the way with it. Specifically, they're going to put on rubber masks and gloves and chainsaw-murder dominatrixes. In fact, the only thing that confuses me about director Gabriel Hart's "Crazy" video is the… More »

Download Gucci Mane Trap God Mixtape

I've been looking forward to this one. Last night at 10:17 p.m., the messily wonderful Atlanta rap star Gucci Mane released Trap God, his third full-length mixtape of the year. (Yesterday was 10/17, Gucci's label is 1017 Brick Squad, and I think his old drug-dealing location was 1017 whatever street it was. He's really running… More »

Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire – “Telephuck” (Feat. Gucci Mane)

Here's Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire's debut single for Universal, a maximalist, stuttering cut called "Telephuck" that features Trap God Gucci Mane. Hear it below. More »

Gucci Mane – “Fuck The World” (Feat. Future)

Here's another cut from Gucci Mane's forthcoming Trap Lord mixtape, a laid-back but assuredly menacing rumble called "Fuck The World." Keeping it strictly ATL is Future, who supplies the hook. Listen below. More »

Gucci Mane – “Bussin Juugs”

Gucci Mane isn't rapping with the absurd goofball-wizard consistency he had a couple of years ago, but he's released two seriously enjoyable mixtapes this year, and he's got another one called Trap God coming soon. The first single from it is "Bussin Juugs," which finds Gucci yelling louder than usual and generally abandoning… More »

Waka Flocka Flame – “Rooster In My Rari (Remix)” (Feat. Gucci Mane & 2 Chainz)

Here's a remix of Waka's "Rooster In My Rari" featuring ATL peers Gucci Mane and 2 Chainz, who is basically trying to shatter the record for features in a calendar year. I'm not sure what Gucci's up to here -- he delivers an off-putting, staccato verse without much of his signature mush-mouthed, fluid flow… More »

From T.I. To TNGHT: A Look At Trap Rave

Do a search for "trap" on SoundCloud and you'll find more than 500 tracks uploaded with the tag in the last three days. What's interesting, though, are the labels that show up with the most frequency in the similar tags section: "bass," "club," "dance," "dj," "dubstep," and "electronic" appear right below the expected "rap," "hip-hop,"… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Gucci Mane I’m Up

Here's something funny: Gucci Mane records a goofy-ass song called "Scarface," which is all about his stupid, ridiculous face-tattoo of an ice-cream cone with lightning bolts coming out of it, and how the existence of said face-tattoo makes him a scarface. And then he recruits the legendary Texas rap fatalist Scarface, a guy who neverMore »

Download Gucci Mane I’m Up Mixtape

As promised, Gucci Mane dropped his new mixtape I'm Up this morning at 10:17 AM. We've already heard the 2 Chainz-featuring title track "I'm Up" and the rest features production from heavy hitters like Mike Will and Drumma Boy as well as up-and-comers like Young Chop (Chief Keef's "I Don't Like").

Gucci Mane – “I’m Up” (Feat. 2 Chainz)

ATL trap music icon Gucci Mane will put out a new mixtape next week, and today he released the title cut, "I'm Up," a lurching Drummer Boy production that features the ubiquitous 2 Chainz. Drumma Boy gives these dudes a softball -- it's unspectacular in the sense that it's one of those "right-in-the-wheelhouse" track… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Gucci Mane Trap Back

As a human being, Gucci Mane is a mess. Back when he was on his hot streak about three years ago, that was part of his charm. Like fellow Southern-rap face-tat aficionado Lil Wayne before him, Gucci rose to the top of the heap by methodically cranking out mixtape after mixtape in which he cleverly… More »
