Gucci Mane’s The Return of Mr. Zone 6 Track by Track Breakdown

Although we’ve heard his name recently, it’s been a while since Gucci Mane has given the world some new music. Or spoken out publicly, for that matter. In fact, Gucci’s last official project, The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted, dropped half a year ago, in September 2010, and the Brick Squad leader

it’s been Part of that mini hiatus comes to an end now, with the second half to follow in the coming weeks. Gucci is prepping his upcoming street album, The Return of Mr. Zone 6, slated for a March 22 release. On the album, which will be available for purchase online and in stores, the Southern spitter links up once again with Drumma Boy, who produced the majority of the 13-track release, as well as Waka Flocka Flame, OJ Da Juiceman, Birdman, Wale, Master P, Webbie, 8Ball, Rocko and Wooh the Kid.

Below, Gucci Mane speaks for the first time in the new year, as he offers a track by track breakdown of The Return of Mr. Zone 6. —Vanessa Satten with additional reporting by Adam Fleischer

Gucci Mane on the mixtape, in his own words:

The new mixtape is called The Return of Mr. Zone 6. It’s just like the return of my roots. It’s just like the old Gucci. It’s really hardcore. It’s an emphasis on the streets. It’s me going back to my core friends and just giving them a lot of what I didn’t give them on my album—fifteen straight, just gangsta songs. No singing on the songs, just all just straight rap.

On this mixtape, I didn’t holdback. I didn’t cater nothing to no artist. I just went [with] what was on my mind. And there was a lot on my mind at the time. It’s a mini album, but it’s actually, more of a hood albumN=; not a commercial, mainstream album. My fans that have been with me from day one, they gon’ be really pleased on that. And I hope that I gain a couple of new fans, as well.

Most important thing I felt I put on my album that I didn’t put on my last album, I got Waka on there.

Yeah. And the song, I got Wooh Da Kid on there. I got more Brick Squad people on there. My last album, I wanted to show people that I could really do it on my own, so I collaborated with a lot of artists like Wyclef and Swizz Beatz. I took my album as an opportunity to meet people and make music with people who I know’s repertoire. My mixtape, I just took that as an opportunity to really show people what I got, and what me and my boys could do.
