- Gucci Mane said of the new album in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.
“I really just been compiling a bunch of songs, listening to beats,” he said. “I went in with Metro [Boomin], I did a bunch of songs with Southside, C.N.O.T.E. [I] just really wanted to just have a chance to almost make a mixtape worth of songs with all the producers that I like. I picked maybe, like, 60 or 70 songs. I usually just take 20 songs and put them out, but this time I really recorded a bunch of songs and then picked through them.”
