Rappers I’ve Been Listening to Lately

Gucci Mane

Description – Seems to be ‘a real street nigga,’ to a large degree, re selling drugs, being sent to jail for murder, and having the lyric “I’m a street nigga dawg / I’m a street nigga dawg / You a street nigga just like me / I’m a street nigga dawg / I’m a street nigga dawg / There’s no industry we’re in these streets,” sung convincingly over a ‘hard’ beat.  Is the CEO of ‘So Icey Ent.’  Seems not very creative; however, seems to make up for it in ‘hardness.’  Raps almost exclusively about selling cocaine, smoking weed/taking ecstasy, and his jewelry.  Signature ‘noises’ include “burr!” “yeeahh,” and “damn.”  Notable physical features include gut, chains (Bart Simpson on a skateboard / egg beater), yellow ‘grill.’

Albums/Songs I Currently Like Back to the Traphouse / “Kush N’ Pills” / The Burrrprint 2 HD

    doesn't seem like it needs four pages since they're basically two paragraphs applied to two artists w various descriptions of appearance

    met him once
    he seemed crazy 'irl' too

    Jordan,

    • Jordancastroisthepresident

  • chris

    think waka flocka left the brick squad because gucci changed management, and waka flocka's mom was gucci's manager

    • Jordancastroisthepresident

      jesus… he left brick squad, are you sure? i knew that re waka flocka flames' mom.

      • chris

        yeah, read it in hip hop weekly or something at walgreens.

      • Jordancastroisthepresident

        i just read on 3x 'online source' that gucci mane left 'so icey' for 'brick squad 1017' which is 'home to' oj da juiceman, waka flocka flame and gucci mane (he is the ceo as well). i think i was wrong re waka flocka flame being a part of 'so icey,' according to [online sources] he is a part of 'brick squad 1017'

    this spring was the spring waka flocka seemed to 'go hard' like every fucking day. it definitely kept my nihilism in check. whenever i'd start to feel jaded, i'd think, “but would i be existentially okay being waka flocka right now?”
    the answer was always “no.” it seemed like just going out in public, for waka flocka, was a game of russian roulette, and i wasn't committed to chaos enough to 'go that hard.'

    Waka Flocka Flame should have waited until LeBron made The Decision before dropping “Lebron Flocka James 2”. He looks silly wearing Cavaliers jersey.
