Gucci Mane’s newfound freedom is something that he is holding onto dearly. As a rapper (and trapper), he has been in and out of the bing more times than anyone can count at this point. But his latest three year stretch sounds like it has changed him for good. For his new The FADER cover story, Guwop opened up to seasoned writer Andrew Nosnitsky about why prison was “hell,” his career plans, sobriety and more much.

Check out an excerpt below and read the cover story in full here.

kanye west kim kardashian harpers bazaar

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian land their third couples cover by fronting the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, shot by the legendary Carine Roitfeld and Karl Lagerfeld (spoiler: it’s less raunchy than their L’Officiel Hommes spread, but more intimate than their Vogue one). In a wide-ranging interview with Laura Brown, Mr. and Mrs. West talk about everything from their favorite music and TV show to their public perception and biggest insecurities…oh, and nude selfies. It’s all quick fire questions and ADHD answers, but it’s still a pretty fascinating look into the life and times of KimYe.

Check out a few of the best quotes below, and click here to read the full interview. The issue hits newsstands on August 16.

Tory Lanez has been releasing music every week, but a lot of it won’t land on his album I Told You.

With I Told You dropping August 19, Lanez is looking for that next smash hit from the album leading to the drop.

It’s not often we get excited for soundtracks, but the fact The Land has appearances by Nas, Erykah Badu, Pusha T, Kanye West, Dave East, Fashawn and more on it is enough to get us excited to listen. Plus, it’s got some joints with Nosaj Thing, who we can appreciate on the non-rap tip. The Sundance Film Festival flick is sure to get some exposure on the big screen, but considering the soundtrack was executive produced by Nas, is clear indication that the music on it will be banging. Luckily, now it’s available for stream ahead of its release at midnight.

pusha t jeremih

Yesterday we saw Nas and Erykah Badu team up for “The Bitter Land,” and now here’s another tag team track from the soundtrack to The Land. “Paid” pairs Pusha T’s paper chasing rhymes with Jeremih’s velvety vocals over a Western saloon-style backdrop, and it makes for a feel-good get money anthem.

The Land, an indie drama about young skate rats looking to escape the streets of California, stars Michael K. Williams and Erykah Badu. The accompanying soundtrack features French Montana, Kanye West and Stalley, and is available to stream in full here. The film and the soundtrack both officially release tomorrow (July 29).
