Gucci Mane has clearly been a man on a mission since leaving prison earlier this year, because he’s already released two albums, Everybody Looking in July and Woptober, which he dropped on Friday, October 14, for free.
Today, Guwop alerted fans to his next release The Return of East Atlanta Santa, which proves he either has a vault full of music ready to go, or he’s in constant work mode and never leaves the studio.
“‘Woptober’ in the streets right now,” tweeted Gucci. “Coming right back with #’TheReturnofEastAtlantaSanta on 12/19.”
Earlier this month, the 36-year-old rap star spoke with XXL and talked about how Atlanta’s music scene has changed since he was locked away, and although he may not like all of today’s music, he has respect for the younger artists— especially how they’ve grasped the importance of self-promotion and doing things themselves. In that same interview, Gucci also talked about the rise of Young Thug and the good business sense that he possesses.
“I always used to tell Thug ‘You signed to me, but at the end of the day you the boss of Young Thug Entertainment,” he said. “He talented, but at the same time he understand what’s going on.”
As of now, there’s no word if The Return of East Atlanta Santa will be an album or mixtape, but we should soon find out.
