Gucci Mane has already released 60 tracks this year, and he's beefing with Young Jeezy again. On Twitter, he's even invited the Snowman to his party tonight (Wednesday, October 17) at adult club Diamonds of Atlanta, but with the caveat of a $100,000 bet: "I can and will beat Jeezy ass #JUSTTRUTHS."
Then last night, Gucci Mane previewed his new mixtape Trap God, out today at 6 p.m., at Patchwerk Studios off Hemphill Avenue. In the middle of the listening session, Love & Hip-Hop's Momma Dee broke through the crowd and introduced the rapper to her friend, Flavor of Love Season 2 contestant Shay Johnson. Johnston twirled as she ran her hands through her sleek ponytail, then shyly walked away. Gucci smiled, as Trap God blared and seemingly echoed his thoughts — "I'd fuck with that."
If Gucci does indeed plan to release 10 albums in 2013, then Trap God plays out as the culmination of his training before next year's marathon. To crisp snares and stomping synths, he brags a few times of being in the trap in his long johns. He frequently spits out notable stats, such as being worth $10 million with no jewelry on. In "Get Money Nigga," featuring Meek Mill, Gucci Mane acts like Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino as he hollers, "Get the fuck out East Atlanta, you know you don't belong here!"
Despite featuring a slew of guest lyricists (Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Future) and producers (808 Mafia, Zaytoven, Mike Will Made It), Trap God's songs bleed into each other, and Gucci rarely slackens his pace and downright refuses to lighten up. As the mixtape blared through the speakers, he rarely acknowledged the dozens of onlookers surrounding him — whether nearby or in an adjacent room, either nodding along or gawking at him as he was a zoo animal. Instead, he stood with his arms crossed and head lowered, mouthing his own lyrics as if he was the only one in the studio. He makes it known that he’s a workaholic in Trap God, and based on his plans for 2013, he needs to hear Trap God the most.
Trap God is out today as the premier release off WorldstarHipHop's new mixtape site, WorldStarTapes.
*Christ, Lord sorry
"Punk" style like this seems like it is the polar opposite of punk. Bradford Cox…
They're kind of starting to look like a joke of themselves. Song's good though.
All 80s movies want you...
Their show with Chris, Lord about 3 years at the Unicorn was the best.
I am a connoisseur of this real soul music like the comment above I'm glad…
