Gucci Mane Preps Release Of New Album | Music News

Published February 10, 2011

It's Gucci time again. And this time, it's about his music. The Atlanta rapper is set to release his latest "street" album "The Return Of Mr. Zone 6" via Warner Bros. records. Over the last few months, Gucci has run into some problems with the law (as well as with his mental health), but in a statement released to the press yesterday, Gucci claims he is ready to get back to makin' music.

"2009 was a great year. 2010 was a hell of a great year. I'm hoping 2011 will be a hell of a great year," says Gucci, whose album is set for a March 22 release date. For the 13-track album, Gucci teamed up with producer Drumma Boy, a long-time collaborator, and Southside and Zaytoven. Guest artists on the album include Waka Flocka Flame, OJ Da Juiceman, Cash Money's Birdman, Wale, Master P, Webbie, 8ball, Rocko and Wooh the Kid.

"It didn't really make sense to not have some of the people who've been responsible for some of my best street records behind me," he says. "This street album is a return to the music that got me buzzin' in the first place." The album will be available both online and at local retailers.
