Gucci Mane is a man of many Mixtapes.
To be honest, some aren't great, some are mediocre, and some are audio abortions.
But SOME are incredible.
The best one is the one that caught me off guard the most, The Movie: BurrPrint 3D.
First of all the cover is insane. Like there's no way it'd be good, I mean look at this shit:
He looks like a Boss in Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
Then the tape starts and Gucci QUOTES the Evil Witch from Snow White and The 7 Dwarves. I've been listening to rap/hiphop/trap for my entire life and I have never heard that happen. But once it does happen Gucci does not take his foot off the gas until the tape ends.
When people say Gucci is a clone, this is the tape that inspires that statement. There is no way that the Gucci Mane on Burrprint 3D is the same Gucci proposing to his girl at the Atlanta Hawks game.
This is dangerous, hilarious, preposterous Gucci. This is every Gucci combined into one. This is a Gucci Spirit Bomb, this is the Gucci that scares your mom, this is Gucci Mane La Flare at his BEST. Unfortunately for us and more importantly Gucci, Gucci at his best is Gucci at his most volatile.
Every time he speaks in between tracks he sounds higher than an NRA contribution. Everything he says is hilarious until you remember he's probably holding at least 3 pistols on his person. This is the tape you listen to when you want to piss away your entire Tax Return on jewelry. This is "lets do steroids to bench 300+" music. High Risk High Reward music.
I honestly don't know why this tape is so amazing, everything barely hangs together. It's like the last shot in Space Jam where Jordan becomes a cartoon; this shouldn't be possible. But thankfully for me and Gucci Fans everywhere, this Mixtape works.
Part of me gets sad that we'll never see this Gucci Mane again, but luckily for us he left this tape as his legacy.
