Gucci Mane announced his Evil Genius album a while ago but we haven’t heard too much music till now. Today, Gucci presses the reset button with the premiere of his new song ‘Kept Back’ featuring Lil Pump.
Gucci gave Zane Lowe the green light to debut the song and also spoke on the forthcoming album. “I really just been compiling a bunch of songs, listening to beats,” said Gucci. “I went in with Metro, I did a bunch of songs with Southside, C.N.O.T.E. I really wanted to just have a chance to almost make a mixtape worth of songs with all the producers that I like. I picked like 60 or 70 songs. I usually just take 20 songs and put them out, but this time I really recorded a bunch of songs and then picked through them.”
