Remember when Gucci Mane simultaneously dissed T.I., Young Jeezy and Yo Gotti on “Birds of a Feather,” just days before his Trap House III album hit iTunes? Or how about the time he called the same trio his “top 3 p*ssy ass rappers” ahead of the release of his triple-project, World War III: Lean, Gas & Molly? It appears Guwop’s recent three-day Twitter rampage was nothing more than a promotional stunt (albeit a heavily destructive one) for his new free album, Diary of a Trap God, which dropped last night.
Funnily enough, the 23-track offering includes records with Waka Flocka Flame, OJ Da Juiceman, Chief Keef, Young Scooter and Tyga — five guys he either dissed or offered to sell on the cheap (or both). It’s likely that these tracks were recorded some time ago (or at least before this week), but who knows why Gucci decided to hold on to them after publicly insulting his collaborators.
Oh yeah, about that whole Twitter rant. Yesterday, Guwop claimed his account was hacked by his ex-manager. How convenient, right? As hip-hop fans, we’ve suffered through staged “beefs” as artists or groups look to claw at what relevancy they have left, but Gucci’s played this card too many times for it to not backfire. Burnt bridges for extra clicks? “Don’t kill ya self build ya self,” to quote the man himself.
