Last month, following the release of Woptober, we openly urged Gucci Mane to reconsider his album release strategy after he announced plans to release a third 2016 project, The Return of East Atlanta Santa, in December.
Gucci didn't listen to us.
Tonight (November 14), without any advance warning or hints, Guwop unveiled a free, six-song collaborative EP with Future, entitled Free Bricks 2K16 (Zone 6 Edition).
Featuring production work from Metro Boomin, Southside, and Zaytoven, the project was recorded on Sunday evening after Gucci and Future ditched their respective entourages.
"We knocked out six songs so crazy that I knew we couldn’t just sit on it," Gucci explained to Miss Info. "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.”
Free Bricks 2K16 is the second collaborative project between the Atlanta natives following Free Bricks in 2011.
