If it seemed like Gucci Mane had a busy year in 2016, considering that he was released from prison in May and proceeded to drop an impressive three albums (with one to be released in December), just wait until fans see what 2017 has in store.
Gucci tweeted that he will match his 2016 output in 2017 and then some. He plans on releasing three more albums as well as launching a full tour and publishing his memoir.
A spokesperson for Simon and Schuster confirmed in September that they would indeed be publishing a book by the rapper. “Gucci Mane is one of the most influential and revered hip hop artists in the world,” the spokesperson told FADER. “His impact on American music is profound. This will be a major memoir revealing the life and times of the artist and man, chronicling his youth, ascent to the top of the Atlanta trap scene, incarceration, struggles with addiction and personal rebirth.”
So far in 2016, Gucci has dropped Everybody Looking and Woptober, and he recently announced that he’ll be releasing yet another album, The Return of East Atlanta Santa, in December. And that doesn’t even count all the features he contributed to tracks like Usher’s “No Limit” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles.”
There’s just no slowing down when you’re Gucci Mane.
By the end of 2016 I will have dropped 3 albums and produced my first movie "The Spot". 2017 My first tour, My first book and 3 more albums!—
