Atlanta rappers Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame will take their music relationship to the next level by collaborating on a new album called The Ferrari Boys.
Confident of the project’s content, Gucci described their LP as the “hardest” of 2011.
According to Mane (real name: Radric Davis), “Ferrari” will showcase the two MCs equally and arrive “in the next few months” on 1017 Brick Squad Records, with production by Drumma Boy, Schife, FATBOI and Shawty Redd featured on up to 20 tracks. “This album is gonna be the hardest album of the year,” Mane tells Billboard.com. “The songs are so clever, the beats are so slammin’, and the lyrics are just so aggressive. There’s so much energy that we bring to the studio. Nobody’s gonna be able to top this album that me and Waka are coming out with.” (Billboard)
Along with an album, Gucci and Waka are reportedly putting together a reality show.
The yet to be titled program will give viewers an intimate look at the behind-the-scene lives of two of rap’s biggest names. “We show everyday life. What we get into in studio and at our shows. We just ordinary people with a crazy Rock ‘N’ Roll lifestyle,” Gucci told RumorFix exclusively. “Because of the music we make, people think that’s what we do all the time — but we got a real family life. We got heart. We do a lot of things for the community and we love each other,” the Atlanta rapper continued. (RumorFix)
Last year, Waka and Gucci had a public falling out and temporarily ended their relationship.
“I don’t think it’s no split. We couldn’t meet each other on a business level — or a personal level,” Flocka told radio host DJ Drama. “Whatever the level is, I don’t know. I’m going this way and [he’s] going that way and we both killin’ these folk. That’s just what it is…Ain’t no drama. Don’t ever think it’s just like, ‘Ey, let’s get [him]’ … Don’t ever think I’m [going] to ride on him with another person. Let’s make that super clear.” (Hot 107.9)
However, the rapper later came forward and said their issues had since been resolved.
“Nothin’ happened! The media took a brotherly argument [and turned it in] to a separation. We was getting so far apart from each other, we was like, ‘Hold up, boy.’ But, nah, there wasn’t no argument. Just brotherly sh*t, like you argue with your brother, or friend like, ‘Man, what the f*ck? Yeah, aight, sh*t.’ That’s normal human being sh*t. But they took it like, ‘Oh, they rappers, aye, they broke up.’ There’s nothing wrong. We working on the Brick Squad [album] and all that. We turnin’ it up.” (XXL Mag)
A release date for The Ferrari Boys has not yet been revealed.
