Atlantic recording artist Gucci Mane is celebrating the release of his eagerly anticipated new album. MR. DAVIS , which is available now.
MR. DAVIS includes the singles, Tone It Down (Ft. Chris Brown), I Get The Bag (Ft. Migos), and the just-released Curve (Ft. The Weeknd). The latter track drew instant acclaim upon its arrival last month, with SPIN hailing its “hypnotic, sleazy hook.”
In addition, Tone It Down (Ft. Chris Brown) and I Get The Bag (Ft. Migos), are both joined by roof-raising companion visuals, streaming now at Gucci Mane’s official YouTube channel. I Get The Bag (Ft. Migos) is proving an especially popular online favorite, now boasting more than 92 million views at YouTube alone.
MR. DAVIS follows the release of DROPTOPWOP, which features the smash hit Met Gala ft. Offset, the video for the which was released just last week and has already amassed over 3.4 million views. Produced by Metro Boomin, the mixtape received widespread critical attention, with Pitchfork declaring it to be “their most unhinged music in some time.”
A true multi-platform superstar, Gucci Mane has just published his extraordinary memoir, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane (Simon & Schuster), quickly earning critical applause from coast to coast in the US, landing on the New York Times Best Sellers list. GQ hailed the tome as “a cautionary tale that ends in triumph…There are scenes from Gucci Mane’s new autobiography that seem better fit for a gripping Oscar drama than for the story of a guy who recently won his first MTV Video Music Award for a guest spot on a Fifth Harmony song.”
“Better than any urban novella,” raved Newsweek, “the book is an exemplary account of the life and times of Radric Davis from Bessemer, Alabama – otherwise known as Gucci Mane.” “The Autobiography of Gucci Mane is about growth, resilience and how no matter the setback,” declared Essence. “Many of us reading this would not be able to handle it but the many lessons Gucci Mane endured and shared in this autobiography can be valued by us all.”
Currently starring on covers of PAPER Magazine’s Beautiful People Issue, High Snobiety, CLASH, and the 20th anniversary edition of XXL, Gucci was among the top nominees for BET Hip Hop Awards.
As if all that weren’t enough, Gucci Mane recently joined Fifth Harmony for the worldwide hit single, Down (Feat. Gucci Mane). Gucci and Fifth Harmony made a series of high profile TV performances supporting the single, including ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and the MTV Video Music Awards. What’s more, Down (Feat. Gucci Mane) was this year’s MTV Video Music Award winner for “Best Pop Video” following its Teen Choice Awards 2017 triumph as “Choice Song: Group.”
Widely ranked among the most gifted rappers of his generation, Gucci has been incredibly productive since his early release from incarceration in May 2016. EVERYBODY LOOKING – Gucci’s first studio album in half a decade – arrived soon after and made an incredible chart debut at #1 on the US Soundscan/Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart; his highest ranking debut to date.
Recorded in Atlanta over six days immediately following Gucci’s release from prison, EVERYBODY LOOKING includes the hugely popular track releases, Back, the Drumma Boy-produced All My Children, No Sleep (Intro), Guwop Home (Feat. Young Thug) and First Day Out Tha Feds. The latter proved a true pop culture phenomenon, earning close to 1 million SoundCloud plays within the first 12 hours of its May 27th release.
Gucci’s third commercial release of 2016, THE RETURN OF EAST ATLANTA SANTA dropped just weeks after the arrival of his acclaimed surprise release mixtape, WOPTOBER. The latter collection includes such tracks as Bling Blaww Burr (Feat. Young Dolph), Money Machine (Feat. Rick Ross), and Aggressive, each of which are joined by companion video clips streaming now at the OfficialGucciMane YouTube channel.
THE RETURN OF EAST ATLANTA SANTA is available now for purchase on the iTunes Stone while streaming exclusively on Apple Music. The album includes blockbuster tracks likeBoth (Feat. Drake), Last Time (Feat. Travis Scott), and Stutter, all accompanied by official companion videos streaming now on the OfficialGucciMane YouTube channel.
