Gucci Mane has been laying down some incredible performances this Summer. The ATLien was rapping shirtless at Lolla, and even went A Capella at NYC’s Panorama Music Festival. For a rapper pushing 40, Guwop can still deliver for his fans, who are currently awaiting the arrival of his new album, Evil Genius.
Now, Gucci Mane has dropped “Kept Back“, feat. Lil Pump. The Murda Beatz-produced track served as Zane Lowe’s World Record for Thursday (August 9) over at Apple Music’s Beats 1 station. You can check out “Kept Back” below.
The track’s second verse hints to just how busy Gucci Mane has been this year, specifically because of his upcoming biopic. “Baby you a human jacuzzi/ I’ma twist a bitch like a Rubik’s/ I might turn my book into a movie (Gucci)/ I’mma put a bitch in a movie, porno/ Rockstar couple, Cher, Bono,” he rhymes. Later in the interview with Zane Lowe, Gucci Mane excites fans by dropping a few names who’ve been involved with Evil Genius.
“I usually just take twenty songs and put them out but this time I really recorded a bunch of songs and then picked through them,” he says. “I’ve got a dope record with Offset. I’ve got a crazy song with Quavo. I’ve got a song with 21 Savage. I got one with Kevin Gates. I got one with NBA Young Boy.”
Though we have yet to receive an official release date for Evil Genius, the arrival of the Lil Pump featured “Kept Back” suggests the album is arriving sooner than later. Stay tuned, Guwop fans.
