Gucci Mane, Quavo and 2 Chainz Have New Music on the Way Together
2 Chainz is going to release a new single featuring Gucci Mane and Quavo. Footage of the three rappers shooting a music video hit the net earlier today (Oct. 18). 2 Chainz confirmed the collaboration via Instagram, also noting that Mike Dean produced the track, which looks to be called "Good Drank."
This isn't the first time Tity Boi's worked with Mike Dean. The Houston producer did production on two songs from TrapaVelli Tre—"Neighborhood" and "GOAT," both being standout cuts on an already excellent mixtape.
This collab will add to the huge amount of music Gucci Mane has released since getting out of prison. He recently dropped his Woptober album and is scheduled to follow that up with a project titled The Return of East Atlanta Santa.
Gucci Mane's renewed focus can be credited to his ability to get off drugs. The Atlanta native told XXL that getting off drugs has allowed him to be a better artist.
"If you would’ve told me before I went to jail that I could stop drinking lean and smoking weed... I knew people could do that and I had heard stories of that, but I never wanted to do that," Gucci said. "I never ever wanted to not be high. I enjoyed doing it so much so… but I was thinking about putting my plan together, after, like, a year of being away from drugs, it became part of my plan. The way I’m handling business now and the way I think now is way more sharper than how I was before. Maybe if I don’t do that, that’ll keep me from keep going back and forth to jail. I just kept building on that and making that a part of my life. Once I embraced that, it just made me treat everything different. And I think that’s why I’m getting better results now ’cause my whole approach is just different."
