Gucci Mane’s first project of 2017, DropTopWop, comes on the one-year anniversary of his release from prison.

Very few people had a better 2016 than Radric Davis.

At long last, Gucci Mane was freed from prison. And though a little lockdown hadn’t stopped him from putting out material, fans could tell that Gucci was eager to get back to the music and get his life right. Literally, within 24 hours of his release, Gucci dropped “First Day Out Tha Feds.” What followed after that, was a slew of projects – three albums over the course of six months – and an impeccably consistent track record of turning every single one of his features that year into gold. Oh, and he proposed to the love of his life.

He began 2017 with a Grammy nomination for Everybody Looking and the announcement of his first book. Now, Guwop hopes to continue to build on his momentum with the release of his latest LP, DropTopWop. Though the album’s release was teased as early as January, it wasn’t until Wednesday that Gucci revealed, via Twitter, that it would touch down on the last weekend of May. The date is not a coincidence: May 26, 2016 was the exact date of Gucci’s prison release.

At only ten tracks deep – technically, nine tracks and an interlude – DropTopWop appears to favor quality over quantity. The album features production mostly from Metro Boomin (though LondonOnTheTrack adds his magic to “Both Eyes Closed”), with Gucci (branding himself “Gucci Boomin”) serving as executive producer. 2Chainz, Young Dolph, Offset, and Rick Ross (on the traptastic outro cut “Loss 4 Wrdz”) show up as features on the project.
