Gucci Mane and Drake Collab on “Back on Road”
Drake dropped Gucci Mane's new "Back on Road" on OVO Sound Radio today. It's produced by Murda Beatz, and you can hear it above.
"I'm just an East Atlanta nigga with a body on my belt/I done had a lotta beefs and I ain't never call for help," spits Gucci on the track that's rumored to be the first single from his upcoming, as-of-yet untitled project. Needless to say, he's throwing shots at a couple unnamed people throughout his two verses.
Those unfamiliar might not know that this is far from the first Drake and Gucci collab. Songs like "Believe It or Not" and "In My Business" dropped years ago, but this new shit is by far their best connection to date.
Meanwhile, it's been a big year for Murda Beatz, who produced Drake's "With You" featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR. XXL sat down with the Toronto producer, who opened up about how he met Drake and working in the lab with him for Views.
"I met Drake officially for the first time two years ago at a Wiz Khalifa concert in Toronto," recalls the 22-year-old producer. "I was with Rich Homie Quan. Rich Homie Quan introduced me and Drake and he said I had good beats. And then on…you know."
As for "With You," Murda says there are a lot more records where that came from. "I actually made the beat in the studio with them. I made the beat in the studio with Party and then it was one of the nights where we were just going crazy and I think we made like 12 beats that night and we banged out 10 records."
