This mixtape is slept on.
We all have our guilty pleasures. Something that you like and you quite can’t put your finger on. It might be bananas and peanut butter sandwiches or Glee (#shots). Seeing as I think I listen to great music and quality artists a lot of people can’t understand why I’m a fan of Gucci Mane. I’m always declaring my dislike for artists such as Plies and Ace Hood. Super ignorant lyrics and rappers bother me but for some reason I see Gucci Mane as a comedian who tells jokes to beats. I honestly believe Plies knows better and he just plays on the ignorance of his listeners in order to sell records. He probably doesn’t believe most of what he raps about. La Fluer on the other hand cannot fake the type of ignorance he personifies.
Gucci was released from his latest stint today after serving six months for violating his probation. The Atlanta rapper scheduled a press conference early this morning to announce plans for a nationwide tour this July to promote his forthcoming album “The Appeal.” In honor of this holiday I’ve been listening to my Gucci/10-17/So Icey playlist since about 11:30 this morning. Hopefully dude can stay out of jail at least long enough to finish out his tour.

Oh yeah this post was so facetious and I hope you saw the humor it in. To bring balance to the universe I think I’ll do a Common or Reflection Eternal post next week.
With that I leave you with some of my favorite tracks Gucci (with key Gucci quotable) is featured on:
Bricks– “95 Air Max cuz I’m a dope runner, ballin like an athlete but got no jumper. It’s Bricks!”
Heavy– “yeah I got amigos but they don’t bring me tacos, they only bring me kilos but keep that on the d-low.”
Beat it Up– “Money never limited, So Icey with benefits my driveway need a passport, all my cars are immigrant.”
Superhero– “I cut more girls than Wolverine, I put 6’s on my batmobile, Spiderman diamond chain, red, blue same color my rims.”
Lemonade– “Canary yellow lemon watch, big bird yellow top, yellow polo, polo, slippers white and yellow polo socks.”
Kush Is My Cologne– “I’m inhaling, exhaling it, it makes me more intelligent, I feel like I’m still mailing it, I’m selling it, they smelling it.”
Stupid– “Heavy on the licorice, this industry ridiculous, got juice magnificent, I’m not very articulate. “
Do you like ignorant music every now and then or maybe everyday? Am I poisoning my mind by listening to these lyrics? Who is your favorite ignorant rapper?
