Tuesday, Oct 9, 2012 11:17PM
Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane may need to set up a bed in his studio after revealing plans to hopefully put out at least ten albums within the next 15 months.
If all goes accordingly, Gucci will have ten retail projects in stores by December 31st, 2013.
On Wednesday, Oct. 17, Gucci Mane will unveil "Trap God," his third mixtape of the year following "Trap Back" and "I'm Up." By the end of 2012, the prolific Atlanta MC will have released a whopping 60 tracks -- but Mane tells Billboard that 2013 will be an even bigger year. "My goal is to drop 10 projects in 2013," says the rapper. "All albums. I gotta do it. I know the 10 projects I want to drop." Of that output, Mane says that "maybe 30, 40 percent" of what we wants to release next year is complete. "I got a lot of work to do," he admits. "We collectively have a lot of work to do, but we're ready to work." (Billboard)
The rapper, widely known for stints behind bars, said 2012 served as a rebound year.
"I feel like this was a rebuilding year for me, and my whole record label," says Mane, who released two collaborative albums, "Ferrari Boyz" with Waka Flocka and "BAYTL" with V-Nasty, in 2011. "Waka dropped a great album, but at the same time, I feel like it didn't get the push it deserved. So I said, 'This is the year I'm gonna power myself up and build my war chest, and regroup for next year.'" (Billboard)
Gucci recently made headlines after coming to terms with a $60,000 case.
Gucci Mane learned the hard way ... DO NOT shove a woman out of a moving Hummer ... because that woman will sue you and then a judge will order you to cough up almost $60,000 in punitive damages. Gucci was arrested in 2011 after he allegedly pushed a woman named Diana Graham out of a moving Hummer -- all because she refused to go to a hotel room with him. He pled guilty to several charges and was sentenced to six months in jail. Diana then sued the rapper for damages following the incident ... claiming mental anguish, pain and emotional distress.

The Southern hip-hop artist could consider tagging rapper Z-Ro for one of his ten 2013 albums after previously naming him SOHH Underrated.
"I would have to name Z-Ro from Houston, Texas as SOHH Underrated. That's who I think is underrated. I like his music and I feel like he keeps it real to what he is. He's being who he is. I'm a really big fan of him. I remember always hearing a couple of his songs while I was down in Houston. He's one of those artists that always goes hard. I think Z-Ro's underrated and he's somebody that I think should be bigger than what he is right now. I've always been a fan of Texas music too. You got artists like Z-Ro and then you have UGK, Bun B and [the late] Pimp C. That's another one I've always been a big fan of. Pimp C. I remember I had a song with him right before he passed away. We were working together for a song. I was supposed to have him on my album." (SOHH Underrated)
