Nearly six months to the day since he walked out of a federal penitentiary in Indiana, Gucci Mane is rounding into form by releasing his fourth project of new material in 2016 so far, this one a collaboration with one of hip-hop's hottest rising stars, Lil Uzi Vert, called 1017 Vs. The World. A reference to both Gucci's 1017 records and Uzi's April mixtape, Lil Uzi Vert Vs. the World, the new project is seven songs long and features production by Zaytoven, Honorable C.N.O.T.E. and Mannie Fresh.
The tape is the second collaborative mixtape Gucci's released in the past 10 days, following the surprise joint project with Future, Free Bricks 2 (Zone 6 Edition), that they dropped to widespread acclaim on Nov. 14. And lest anyone think that Gucci hasn't blessed fans enough, he also unleashed a new video for "Selling Heroin" off that Free Bricks 2 tape, which largely consists of behind-the-scenes footage of Gucci and his friends (Future, Young Thug and Young Dolph all make cameos, as well as Keisha Ka'oir) at various performances and appearances. Check the new tape and video below.
1017 Vs. the World follows the full albums Everybody Looking and Woptober in addition to the Future mixtape, with the promise of another album, The Return of East Atlanta Santa, scheduled for December. And congratulations are in order for Gucci after he proposed to Ka'oir on the Kiss Cam at an Atlanta Hawks basketball game this week as well. Brrr!
