Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane is staying busy these days with the music and has announced the title of his Brick Squad crew's debut album.
Gucci took to his Twitter page to formally get the social media outlets talking about his camp's new Big Money Talk album.
"Guccimane @ChiefKeef @1YOUNGSCOOTER @WakaFlockaBSM @peeweelongway @YoungThugWorld1 @OjDaJuiceman32 Present ...#Bigmoneytalk," he tweeted June 5th.

Last month, Gucci said his group compilation project should drop this upcoming summer.
"I'm just working on my Brick Squad group album which will drop this summer. It'll be me, PeeWee Longway, Young Thug, Dolph and of course Chief Keef. I even got songs with Waka on there. I'm just gonna drop a collection of all the best songs we've been making. I dropped a mixtape for every artist on my label, so now I feel like it's just time to put our album together and show everybody the chemistry we got together. [Waka?] There was more of a miscommunication and things got misconstrued. But we got too much of a good thing. Whatever we got to work out, we always work it out." (XXL Mag)
Gucci also broke down how Chief Keef ended up repping his Brick Squad.
"He a big fan of mine and I just see a lot of potential in him. I feel like all these years I've been in the rap game, there's a lot of things that I wish I could have did a different way. So I just feel like if nothing else, I just want to give him some advice so that he can just enjoy his career. Just show him that trouble is so easy to get into. It's really more of a big brother thing. There's a business arrangement of course, but I just really like him as a person. He hard. He for real. The young people take to what's real, what they perceive as authentic." (XXL Mag)
Along with this project, the ATL rapper is also putting together his upcoming Mr. Guwop LP.
After his unforeseen appearance during an Atlanta middle school career day earlier this year, Gucci Mane has once again made our "Caption This" list. But this time, the controversial MC has left the classroom, unveiling the album artwork of his forthcoming fall release, "MR. GUWOP," on his Twitter account. Judging from the interesting photo we're not quite sure if Gucci is still feeling "So Icy" with his white fur coat or channeling his inner TLC by "chasing waterfalls." Regardless, "Mr. Guwop" is destined to have the streets (streams and lakes) buzzing! (Huffington Post)
