As the holidays roll around, Gucci Mane has a lot to be thankful for — his early release from prison, his return to the rap game, his recent engagement to Keyshia Ka’oir. To celebrate the spirit of the season, Mane has released “St. Brick Intro,” a holiday song that casts him as a drug-dealing, ATL-running Santa Claus.
“Middle of the winter I pull up in a vert/ It’s the middle of December she pulled up in a skirt,” he raps. “Santa Claus of the hood I pull up with the work/ They call me East Atlanta Santa run up on me get murked/ I’m just trappin’ through the snow/ Sellin’ nine half a bricks in four ways.”
It’s a kind of origin story for the “East Atlanta Santa” Gucci rapped about in 2014, and references the success of Free Bricks 2, his 2016 project with Future. Listen to “St. Brick Intro” below.
