Prepare for the Evil Genius.
Gucci Mane has announced a Dec. 7 release date for his long-awaited album. “Fuck it I’m dropping #EvilGenius Decemburr 7th!!” he tweeted.
Evil Genius, which he announced last December, marks Gucci’s first and only project of 2018. Last year, the prolific rapper released three projects—DropTopWop, Mr. Davis, and El Gato: The Human Glacier.
“I hate to say it, but I don’t think [there’s] the same market for that—if I put out 15 mixtapes, they cannot really do what I need them to do,” he told GQ earlier this year. “When I do put my songs out, I gotta put out a serious project that everybody gonna like. If I got 16 to 17 punches, I want those punches to count.”
