Here it is 10/17 day and Guwop’s locked away, stopped from coming out to play. Usually, the Trap God would be on Twitter raising hell and ready to release a project to feed his fans like any beneficent ruler would on a holiday. But, of course, Gucci’s currently incarcerated, leaving him incapable of leading in the festivities. No problem, we’ll celebrate the day ourselves, honoring his audio existence by keeping everyone abreast of what’s new.
What’s new is that Gucci’s got a joint tape with another reader favorite, Rich Homie Quan, dubbed Trust God F*ck 12, which hits retail today. Who knows what quality of music the project holds but we’ve got “Celebrity” and “#IJWHSF (I Just Wanna Have Some Fun)” to listen and the full tracklist below for perusal. I’d imagine it’s an entire tape of Gucci and Quan, trading borderline comprehensible bars over the likes of Lex Luger, Metro Boomin, 808 Mafia, and Zaytoven but I haven’t bought it or heard it so that’s speculation.
I have to admit that every time I see a deluge of Gucci tracks and full projects, the first thing that pops into my mind is Waka saying “He sleep in his studio. He ain’t got no house.” Then, it all makes sense again. Also, I’m still not entirely convinced that Guwop won’t be out for this monumental day, but in the mean time, he’s keeping the streets flooded with new music because that’s what he does. When you go to jail as often as he does, you have to plan ahead and have material ready to go at the drop of a dime.
