Rapper Gucci Mane is speaking out against a new album Trap-A-Thon, which he claims is an unauthorized album, recorded before he left Big Cat Records.
According to Gucci, the Trap-A-Thon CD/DVD release consists of old material and footage, and should not be confused with his upcoming album Back To The Trap House album, which is due in stores in November.
“It has come to my attention that my former record label, Big Cat, is trying to put out an unauthorized release of my music,” Gucci Mane said in a statement. “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.”
Gucci Mane, born Radric Davis, revealed that Back To The Trap House will feature collaborations with Rich Boy, Pimp C and former DTP member Shawnna, who recently signed with the label Gucci owns, So Icey.
“I ask my fans not to support this release and instead wait for the official Gucci Mane, Back To The Trap House 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.”
