OVO Sound leader Drake, 2 Chainz and DJ Khaled have all come forward to promote the new release of hip-hop artist Gucci Mane‘s Everybody Looking album.
The hip-hop trio went to Instagram early Friday (July 22) to shout-out Guwop’s latest solo effort.
Over the last 24 hours, Gucci’s promoted his new album across social media.
This week, Gucci’s longtime producer Zaytoven talked about piecing together his new solo project.
“There are lots of reasons. HeÔÇÖs been gone for so long, the way the production came together was special, and if anyoneÔÇÖs a Gucci fan, youÔÇÖll know that sometimes Gucci makes music where itÔÇÖs all spontaneousÔÇöhe just raps everything off the top of his headÔÇöand you can tell there wasnÔÇÖt time and thought put into it. But this is one of the projects where he had time. He sat and thought about each line he was writing. Plus, the simple fact that he wanted me and Mike Will to work on the majority of the project together was something special. Nobody else has put out a project where two producers like me and Mike Will, who havenÔÇÖt really worked together before, are sitting down and putting a whole project together.” (Pigeons & Planes)
Recently, producer Mike WiLL Made It gushed over the highly-anticipated album.
“I feel like that’s what this album is. This is a classic hip-hop album. I haven’t really [heard] an album that felt this good since Get Rich Or Die Trying. That’s what everybody searching for. Me and Gucci had certain references that we were talking about with this album: All Eyez On Me, The Chronic. He mentioned Layin Da Smack Down by Project Pat. We were just talking about different, solid albums. And we was like, ÔÇ£We gotta bring that solid album of today.ÔÇØ It has to be somebody that’s gon elevate this trap sound, this down South rap sh*t right now. Everybody’s doing their thing, but elevate it in a different way.” (The FADER)
