Surprise! Atlanta kings Gucci Mane and Future have reignited their fruitful collaborative relationship, dropping the heavily anticipated sequel to their 2011 joint tape Free Bricks completely unannounced. Titled Free Bricks 2K16: Zone 6 Edition, this features six new tracks, recorded in one single day. It doesn’t get much fresher than that.
Free Bricks 2K16 is Gucci and Future’s first collaboration since 2013’s Confused, and features the pair’s signature styles gloriously paired with only the freshest producers, Metro Boomin‘, Southside, and Zaytoven.
Speaking to Miss Info, Gucci explained how the pair linked up once again, and just how new this tape really is.
“Last night, me and Future met up in Atlanta. We ditched our entourages, we didn’t book my usual studio, or his usual studio… it’s like we knew we wanted to fly under the radar. There was like this positive competition in the room. I’d hear him go in on a verse, and I knew I had to step up.”
“He would say, the same back, and we knocked out 6 songs so crazy that I knew we couldn’t just sit on it. 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.”
There’s no doubt this really is Guwop’s time. After being released from prison five months early back in May, he’s already released 3 projects and just received first ever number 1 single with a feature on Rae Sremmurd’s Black Beatles. Thought he was done for the year? Think again, Gucci Mane is already gearing up to release his solo album The Return Of East Atlanta Santa due December 17, a project which he said might feature 21 Savage, Young M.A., Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, and “anything that’s hot”.
