Gucci Mane’s new album Everybody Looking is officially here. His first album post-prison, the album was recorded in just six days with the bulk of the production coming from producers Mike WiLL Made It, Drumma Boy and Zaytoven. The album only boasts three features, but they’re biggies—Kanye West, Drake and Young Thug.
Over the past month, the Atlanta rapper has dropped several videos and tons of music leading up to the release event, teaming up with everyone from Kodak Black to Migos, among others. Of course, Gucci clearly emerged from prison a changed man, and not just because of his dramatic weight loss. He’s opened up about his former drug addiction and seems to generally be in a more positive head-space, which is reflected on the project. He wrote all of the raps from jail, and with that comes a slightly different perspective, one that’s a little more introspective and emotionally balanced, though it’s still all GuWop, as evidenced with the singles that he’s dropped thus far.
Although his album is finally here, Gucci is staying busy. Zaytoven confirmed yesterday (July 21) that he’s working with Drake on an upcoming EP, tentatively titled 6’ers.
“It’s in the works right now,” Zaytoven told Pigeons & Planes in an interview. ““When Drake came over to the house to shoot a video, him and Gucci got to talking about making something. It will be a small EP. I think it might be called 6’ers, you know, because Gucci is from Zone 6 and Drake is from Toronto, the 6. It’s definitely happening.”
