Gucci Mane Responds to “Unauthorized” Release of Trap-A-Thon Album

gucci-mane1.jpgGucci Mane has issued a statement in response to what he says was the unauthorized release of his 2006 album Trap-A-Thon by Big Cat Records on September 25. According to Gucci, the album, which was recorded following his release from prison in 2006, was released without his approval. The Atlanta rapper signed with Big Cat in 2005 and released his controversial single “So Icy” with them later that year. The Trap-A-Thon LP features an early version of Gucci’s current hit “Freaky Gurl,” which will also appear on Gucci’s upcoming Back To The Traphouse album on Asylum Records.

Gucci’s statement is as follows:

“It has come to my attention that my former record label, Big Cat, is
trying to put out an unauthorized release of my music. Not only was this
done with out my approval, but the music they are trying to release is
unfinished and does not represent who I am today as an artist. I ask my
fans not to support this release and instead wait for the official Gucci
Mane, Back To The Traphouse album coming out on my label So Icey
Entertainment/Czar/ Asylum/Atlantic Records on November 13th, and if anyone needs to book me for a show or get in contact with me they should only call the So Icey offices.”

    gucci is the shit HATERS

  • DAVE301(DC)

    GUCCI MAN IS AN IDIOT, HE SHOULD JUST CUT THE NEW SONG AS A REMIX, AND GET THE MASTER’S TO THE FIRST CD “TRAP” AND MAKE THE NEW CD A DOUBLE DISK.

    THIS WAY HE CAN MAKE A COME UP.

    IF HE SUE’S THEY WILL STILL SELL HIS OLD CD AND RECOUP HIM A VERY SMALL FEE.

    IF HE TAKE ACTION HE COULD TURN IT IN TO
    A WIN, WIN.

    BUT THEN AGAIN THIS WOULD ONLY WORK FOR A
    REAL ARTIST HOW HAS A FLOW AKA TALENT
    LIKE A LIL WAYNE, KANYE, OR A JAY-Z, TI,
    50 CENT.

    GUCCI MAN SHOULD BE GLAD TO EVEN BE BOOTLEGGED.

Im sorry but I might have to get up on at least a bootleg copy of that though, I dont mean no harm but I want to hear what you was on after gettin out, that “735 with the Gucci interior, I see a real nigga when I look in the mirror,” inspires me. “I rather see yo mama cry, than my mama cry, bitch!”

  • Truuuf

    Is it a law that you have to be a corny, shit-colored pimp from Atlanta to put out a rap record now a days? I mean you got Gucci, Jeezy, Hurricane, Shop Boyz, Joc, Dro, and the entire snap movement. Who’s signing theese no talent clowns?

    @Nawledge
    See, I thought I was the only one who thought that was a lil sneak jab at fatboy.

  • ImFromDetroit313

    Imma keep it 100. Gucci first two albums weren’t all that great, they had a few good tracks though. His mixtapes are the shit. I feel like this next album that he’s talking about releasing in November is going to be the truth. You can’t go to a club and not hear a few Gucci songs. Plus they playing his shit on the radio so he can’t be as ass like yall hating mother fuckers are making him seem. GO TO http://WWW.MIXTAPETORRENT.COM AND IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER TYPE IN “GUCCI MANE CHICKEN TALK”. “If you hater and you know it FUCK YOU yall non rappin’ ass bitches”

And jeezy and his boys only dissing him on wax??? If somebody killed my homie the next day the dude would have been dead, and really i wouldnt make songs about that dude… So jeezy lost. Gucci’s shit is hard man admit it
