Gucci Mane Talks Recording ‘DropTopWop’ Project With Metro Boomin
(AllHipHop News) Gucci Mane celebrated the one-year anniversary of his release from prison by releasing DropTopWop on May 26.
The 10-track project was a joint effort with production wiz Metro Boomin.
While speaking with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, Gucci reflected on partnering with the beat maker for DropTopWop.
“I’m just proud of Metro, to be honest,” said Gucci.
The Trap God explained how he first met Young Metro as a teenage producer that was hoping to get some bars from him.
“He would come to the studio and I’d kick it with him. But I’d never rap on his beats. He’d be like, ‘Gucci, why you never rap on my beats?'” stated Guwop. “So to see what he’s doing now… every time he pulls something up it makes me wanna rap, it makes me wanna record.”
Gucci added, “We did twelve songs in two days. The only reason we didn’t do more songs is because Metro fell asleep.”
The conversation with Lowe also included the southern rap legend talking about his life since exiting prison, his upcoming wedding with Keyshia Ka’oir, and his forthcoming book The Autobiography of Gucci Mane.
