Since being released from prison, it’s safe to say Gucci Mane has done his best to make for lost time musically.
Now, he has surprised fans with the release of a joint mixtape with Future, called Free Bricks 2 (Zone 6 Edition).The mixtape contains six records, with production handled by the mainstays: Metro Boomin, Southside and Zaytoven.
Gucci called Miss Info today and explained how two of the biggest stars in rap managed to catch everyone by surprise:
“Last night, me and Future met up in Atlanta. We ditched our entourages, we didn’t book my usual studio, or his usual studio…it’s like we knew we wanted to fly under the radar,” says Gucci. “There was like this positive competition in the room. I’d hear him go in on a verse, and I knew I had to step up.”
He continues: “He would say, the same back, and we knocked out 6 songs so crazy that I knew we couldn’t just sit on it. We talked about recording some more, adding more songs. But I didn’t want to over think it or over plan things. Even Future didn’t think we were dropping this tonight. This is the freshest it can get. These joints ain’t even 24 hours old. That’s like bringing you in the studio with us.”
