Last night two of trap music’s heavyweights, Gucci Mane and Future, dropped a surprise collaborative mixtape for your listening pleasure. The mixtape, entitled Free Bricks: Zone 6 Edition, is the sequel to their first joint mixtape Free Bricks which was released in 2011.
The mixtape has received no promotion and was pretty much dropped straight after they recorded it; the tracks are literally hot off the press. Gucci commented on the surprise release saying, “Last night, me and Future met up in Atlanta. We ditched our entourages, we didn’t book my usual studio, or his usual studio… it’s like we knew we wanted to fly under the radar. There was like this positive competition in the room. I’d hear him go in on a verse, and I knew I had to step up.”
He went on to say, “He would say, the same back, and we knocked out six songs so crazy that I knew we couldn’t just sit on it. We talked about recording some more, adding more songs. But I didn’t want to over think it or over plan things. Even Future didn’t think we were dropping this tonight. This is the freshest it can get. These joints ain’t even 24 hours old. That’s like bringing you in the studio with us.”
The mixtape is six tracks deep and usual suspects Metro Boomin, Southside and Zaytoven are on production duties. Be sure to check out the mixtape here!
