I know how scared you were for a second, skimming that headline too quickly and thinking that Gucci Man had dropped another sh*tty rap song recorded over the phone from prison. Psh, as if Mr. Mane doesn’t have enough music on ice for at least three years to do something like that.
Instead, it’s a brief phone recording of Gucci updating his fans and “declaring war” with what’s to come release-wise. Think of it as a missed phone call and subsequent voicemail left for you by Gucci.
June 17th, 1017, the empire’s declaring war, I’m dropping the World War 3D. Three albums in one day. The Green Album by the Migos, The Purple Album by Young Thug, and The White Album with Peewee Longway. I would like to thank Mike Will Made It, 808 Mafia, Sonny Digital, Metro Boomin, C4, DJ Plugg, and The Honorable C Note for their help in producing the 2014 soundtrack for the summer…July 4 I’m dropping Trap House 4 and Sept 13 I’m dropping Trap God 3. Even though I’m locked up, I still run the streets from jail. It’s Guwop Coreleone.
The other day, Gotty and I were talking about how Gucci seemed to know that an extended jail stay was in his foreseeable future and stockpiled material for the downtime. More than enough to keep his fans fed while he was gone. Even if he didn’t know exactly when, he must have expected it to happen at some point in time, hence the entire projects with not one, not two, but three of the hottest artists out of Georgia, plus solo projects packed away as well.
I, for one, am intrigued to see how the World War 3D plays out, whether it’s Migos and Gucci songs separately and linked together with the same producers and engineers, or if they are all truly collaborative efforts between the artists and their mentor.
According to Gucci’s aforementioned plans, we won’t wait long to find out.
