With their new Baytl joint album in stores today, Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane has defended his decision to hook-up with Bay Area’s V-Nasty to record a full-length project.
Calling the collaborative effort unexpected, Gucci said V-Nasty’s music ultimately lured him into the studio with her.
“A mutual friend introduced us [and] I heard some of her material and liked it, so we decided to collab,” Gucci said. “A lot of people were surprised. A lot of people, when I told them, were interested in how it was going to sound like, asking me, ‘How’s it sound, man?’ We got production from Zaytoven. People can expect some real good music. I think people are going to be surprised. Baytl by Gucci Mane and V-Nasty album is definitely a classic album.” (XXL Mag)
V-Nasty recently revealed her admiration for Gucci Mane during her pre-fame days.
“I’ve been a fan of Gucci since Trap House. We had the opportunity to connect through mutual friends and when offered the opportunity, I didn’t have to think twice. This album is all about having good, old-fashioned, hoodrat fun with friends.” (VIBE)
Reports of the joint effort being in the works emerged online in late November.
Hey people, we’ve got some big news here this morning. VICE Music, the audio arm of our global empire, just announced a three-year partnership with Warner Bros. Records, made official with one of those gross spit handshake deals. The newest release from this partnership will be Gucci Mane’s latest collaboration, BAYTL. This hot new chunk of wild filth has Gucci going mic to mic with V-Nasty (Oakland femme thug and part of Kreayshawn‘s White Girl Mob). The album is set to come out on December 13. (VICE)
