Gucci teamed up with the New Orleans rapper for “Choppers & Bricks,” a 13-song project with additional contributions from Mike WiLL Made-It, Lil Jairmy, C-Murder, DJ Paul, Honorable C.N.O.T.E., D.A. Got That Dope and more. The release arrives on the heels of the official visual for the Gucci Mane and B.G. assisted single “Cold.”
“I’ve been a fan of B.G., you know what I’m saying? Even before I put out my first commercial album, like ’98, ’99. His first tapes, all his sh*t, I been on,” Gucci said during an appearance on the “Rap Radar” podcast. “To me, it’s been like a wish in making, even before I even thought about it. I know that was an artist that I liked, and I really only gravitate to a certain few artists.”
B.G. also spoke on being able to create music as a free man.
“It feel good, man. It’s nothing short of a blessing. To be gone as long as I was gone, for 12 1/2 years… To come back out here and people still be receptive to the music, to even still want to hear me. It let me know that the music I contributed passed the test of time. I just feel honored, man, and blessed.”
The album also serves as the follow-up to Gucci Mane’s previously released album, “Breath Of Fresh Air.” The drop is B.G.’s first full-length release since he was released from prison in September after spending more than a decade behind bars. The former Cash Money rapper has kept busy since coming home as he’s released a handful of singles and appeared on tracks with E-40, Kevin Gates, Boosie Badazz and more.
