To supply the soundtrack of all your ratchet activities over the next 72 hours, Radric Davis has you covered with his newest time honored American treasure, I’m Up. Pass it over if it’s not your cup of tea, but rest assured out of 21 tracks, there’ll be somewhere in the ball park of 8-10 worth giving spins this weekend. With production from Mike Will, Drumma Boy, Lex Luger, Shawty Redd (!), Zaytoven (!!) and more while Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Fabolous, Rick Ross, Scarface and others ride shotgun, the budget looks more album-worthy than free tape. As we all know though, album-Gucci is like the local hood rat who attempts to be fancy and sophisticated, failing miserably. Take her out to eat and ask her what she’d like to drink and she’ll probably say “orange.” That’s Gucci’s mindset when he makes album.
Mixtape-Gucci, however, you’re good money given the fact some of his catalog defining tracks have appeared on them. If my coaxing still isn’t a good enough selling point, try this. Download the tape because Scarface said so.
