Gucci Mane Drops Mixtape, Sees Ice Cream Tattoo Memorialized in Sculpture
'Trap Back' is the Atlanta MC's first official solo effort since leaving prison
Yesterday wasn’t only Super Bowl Sunday. It was also the day Gucci Mane released his first official solo mixtape since his December 11 release from prison. Hosted by DJ Holiday, who shouts out effusive praise fewer times than Super Bowl announcers Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth (everything was “brilliant” to Collinsworth, wasn’t it?), Trap Back> brings out a roster of guests that includes Waka Flocka Flame, 2 Chainz, Future, Jadakiss, and Yo Gotti. They rhyme over beats from Lex Luger, Zaytoven, and Drumma Boy, among others. Stream the mixtape below, or download it via Dat Piff.
Even when Gucci isn’t giving away music, he is on our collective minds. Partly because of that ludicrous giant tattoo of an ice cream cone permanently etched onto his right cheek. As Buzzfeed points out, an artist has made a sculpture based on the Atlanta rapper’s mystifying tat. Tre Reising, a student at Michigan’s Cranbrook Academy of Art, reportedly said, “I mean, I would give it to him … if he wants to miss out on all the swag points he would get from buying it.” Based on Trap Back’s lyrics, Gucci might’ve already spent too much money on lawyers and wristwatches. Burr!
