Gucci Mane producer Drumma Boy recently opened up about his chemistry alongside the "Burrrrrr Man" and revealed their biggest collaborations together.
Naming "I Don't Love Her" one of their best club smashes, Drumma also revealed the Trey Songz-assisted track "Beat It Up" lacked label support.
"I Don't Love Her" (featuring Rocko and Webbie): "That's one of the biggest Gucci records in the club," Drumma said of the Zaytoven-produced lead number from Zone 6."Hands down, the club goes absolutely ridiculous." "Beat It Up" (featuring Trey Songz): "The label didn't get behind it [and] never shot a video for it," he said of the Burrrprint (2) HD track. "I always tell Gucci that was one of his biggest songs and it could have been bigger." (MTV)
He also credited tracks like "Classical" for exposing a different side of Gucci.
"Worst Enemy": "A lot of DJs still hit me to this day and tell me it's one of his most substantial records," Drumma said about the sobering State vs. Radric Davis record. "Just about his situation and what was going on and how he felt, I get a lot of reviews about that one, still." "All About My Money" (featuring Rick Ross): "People go crazy listening to that one," he said. "Classical": "It was something different that I tried, I have the live orchestra," he said about the Radric Davis opener. "It's fun to bring out different sides of people. I bring out the thinking side of Gucci." (MTV)
Last year, producer Bangladesh hit up SOHH to speak on Gucci venturing into a different creative realm.
"I think Gucci Mane's interest in doing pop records lately is the label, trying to satisfy them. He's on a label now so he's got to kinda go with what they want a little bit. It's just how it is when you join somebody else's label man. You can't always just do what you want to do all the time. They could tell you, "I want you to make these songs," because at the end of the day, they're gonna be the ones putting it out. So they gotta feel what they're putting out. So it just comes along with the territory. So talking about pop records, it's usually the powers that be and the people at the label telling him he should do [them] so he can cross over. I know that's not Gucci himself wanting to make pop records." (SOHH Guest Star)
As of late, Gucci has been linked to pop star Britney Spears.
Gucci confirms to RumorFix that he'll be spitting a few bars on Britney's new tune, "Hit". The unlikely duo will meet next week in an Atlanta studio at Mizay Entertainment to record the track. The hip-hop artist tells RumorFix that Britney has been a fan of his music for years, that's why he chose to do the song with her. "Britney's so icy," Gucci tells RumorFix exclusively, "I'm going to make her go Brrr." Gucci tells RumorFix he chose to work with Britney because she's "raw and exciting. She's crazy. We like to get down like that." (RumorFix)
