Gucci Mane & Waka Prep Ferrari Boys Album

Southern hip-hop fans can rejoice: Atlanta rap stars Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame are set to release a joint album this spring.

Gooch told billboard.com that he and Waka will release The Ferrari Boys on 1017 Brick Squad Records, home to both rappers, “in the next few months.”

“This album is gonna be the hardest album of the year,” he said. “The songs are so clever, the beats are so slammin’, and the lyrics are just so aggressive. There’s so much energy that we bring to the studio. Nobody’s gonna be able to top this album that me and Waka are coming out with.”

The album is set to feature up to 20 tracks with equal contributions from both MCs. Production comes courtesy of Schife, FATBOI, Shawty Redd and longtime Gucci collaborator Drumma Boy, who also produced Waka’s massive club smash “No Hands.”

But first up, Gooch will return to his roots with the release of his 13-track street album The Return of Mr. Zone 6 next Tuesday, March 22.

“It’s just like the old Gucci,” he told XXLMag.com about The Return of Mr. Zone 6 earlier this month. “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.”

Gucci enlisted Drumma Boy to produce the majority of the album, which features guest spots from Waka as well as OJ Da Juiceman, Birdman, Wale, Master P, Webbie, 8ball, Rocko and Wooh the Kid.

Gucci – who recently had a three-scoop ice cream cone tattooed on the right side of his face after a court-ordered stint at a psychiatric hospital – said that his next solo album, The Ice Cream Man, will drop this fall. —Lauren Carter

Im so tired of this mainstream BS hip-hop and everybody thinking its the shit…Gucci is far from lyrical! Tech N9ne’s ALL 6′s AND 7′s is gunna be the best album this year hands down! Every album from a decent artist will be better than this garbage! Sure yeah they got good production..But look who theyre producers are?! AND Waka and Gucci ARE NOT MC’S!!!!!! Get that straight XXL..

  • Chyllmatic

    @XXLStaffMembers, Stop posting this bullshit about Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane. NOBODY cares about them except for country ass southern niggas like “RAY-RAY”. Don’t ever call Gucci and Waka MC’s let alone call them rappers because they’re just a bunch of mediocre entertainers. And I’m still mad about OJ Da Juiceman being a XXL 10′ freshman. GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER XXL .!!!!

    • SupaDupa

      If NOBODY cares about them why do they sell more than all these”Lyrical” muthafuckers. I don’t see any Immortal Technique or none of them rappers on Billboard Charts. Waka was #1 on the charts that mean he relevant.

      Dumb ass “real” rap fans think they smarter cuz they listen to nerd rap. Nobody wants to make that shit cuz you “fans” don’t even buy their shit

  • Tray Tray

    I agree with Ray Ray, Yall jus some sensitive ass Fags who think the music they like is so precious. just get over ya self

  • NAPTOWNNUISANCE

    Dammmmn they doin a cd together, for real. This will be a cd I will be damn sure to SKIP OUT ON. Why ? Because they both suck ass along with all the other half baked rappers out who cant rap worth a shit.
    Like Rick Ross, Soulja Boy, Fat Joe and all the other dance song disposable rappers. hahahahaa

  • NAPTOWNNUISANCE

    Ever hear the saying majority rules? Well if you took a poll from rap fans I would lay my pay check on it there would be waaaaaayy more rap fans who dislike these clowns than ones who do.

    waka and gucci suck. its garbage same crap every album

  • TicNitty706

    These two fuck clowns won’t sell much either. Its not all about the lyrical rapper no doubt, but you sound stupid trying to discredit the more lyrical emcee. It says a lot about your intelligence level imo.

    We just need that balance back. There is room in rap for both sides of the coin. Just like there is a fanbase out there for the mindless entertainment there is one out there for the more thought provoking entertainment also. Really that is why Gucci and others like him get hated on soooo much. Its because its like they are the only representation of rap music and that pisses a lot of us true to it fans off.

  • http://xxlmag JOSHNEVERSLEEPSDAWG

    yea right true rap music fans recognize that these two are garbage

    The reason it looks like so many people hate on Gucci Mane etc is because all their haters are internet nerds.

    FACT: most of Gucci Manes fans are out in the street & out in real life doing real things: having fun, getting laid, getting money etc etc etc, not sitting at home typing hater-ass comments from their moms internet connection.

    FACT: internet rap nerd commenters are mixed up thinking that ineffectual posers spouting pseudo lyrical dated nonsense acting like theyre smart and ‘conscious’ (conscious of what? not their own delusions of grandeur) talking about ‘real hip hop’ when they wouldnt know sugarhill gang from shit if they heard the name they would call the police.

    Gucci Manes more hip hop than you know what to do with.

    Yr mistaken in thinking a brief trend in the 90′s of dudes portraying an image of being ‘smart’ (how are you smart when you’re so broke?) and claiming that as ‘real’ hip hop is ah whatever shit ive got stuff to do but you get the point. and by the giant contradiction that is LIFE i have turned into exactly what im railing against internet rap nerdery but whatevr……..

    Gucci burned lil wayne on ‘Steady Mobbin’ btw fyi ftw etc
