Gucci Mane has been super busy since his May 26, 2016 release from prison, after serving a three-year stint in an Indiana federal penitentiary on federal gun and drug charges. So busy, that rumor has it Oxygen wants to document his life in a new reality show.
XXL reports that the rumored series is almost a done deal, and would focus on Gucci’s life since his prison release, including making new music and time spent with his girlfriend, Keyshia Ka’oir.
The Atlanta rapper proved he really needed no reintroduction to his rabid fan base since he was still dropping music while he was locked up. But Gucci clocked a million streams with his first post-prison release, “First Day Out Tha Feds” and also made a notable appearance on Kanye West’s star-studded single, “Champions” from his anticipated Cruel Winter album, spitting, “”Now that Gucci home, it’s over for you Gucci clones.”
To that end, Guwop is prepping to drop his new album, Everybody Looking, on July 22. The album was recorded in less than a week, with Mike WiLL Made-It and Gucci’s longtime beat man, Zaytoven handling most of the production. Zaytoven said that upon his release, he and Gucci took a few minutes getting caught up.
“He looked totally different,” Zaytoven told XXL, most likely referencing Gucci’s dramatic weight loss. But after just a few minutes of catching up, it was back to the studio.
“We hugged, we talked for maybe 10 minutes, and after that it was back to work,” Zaytoven confirmed. “Just like old times: I’m making the beat and he’s recording real fast. And we’re sitting back listening to it, laughing.”
With Guwop’s busy schedule, if the deal with Oxygen is real, they’ll have no shortage of material.
