Listen to Chief Keef Name Check ‘The Godfather,’ Gucci in ‘Gucci Gang’
By Courtney E. Smith
Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Burberry get name checked alongside Quentin Tarantino and The Godfather in Chief Keef‘s drugged-out new track, “Gucci Gang.”
In now-standard Keef style, he’s delivered another sluggish rap on top of trap production paired with a video shot in some generic apartment — possibly the one he’s moved into after being reportedly evicted from his last home.
The visual disconnect of the less than bourgeois location and clothing make it clear: this is really a Gucci Mane shout-out track — from the dragging, unclear delivery that apes Mane’s own style to the chorus, which isn’t a shout-out to the brand that has fallen out of favor with hip hop. It’s a chant for Gucci Mane.
