Atlanta rap star Gucci Mane spoke recently to XXL about his Brick Squad imprint. Gucci plans to showcase his ever-expanding roster of talent; he says that fans can expect a Brick Squad
mixtape in coming months.
"I'm just working on my Brick Squad group album which will drop this summer. It'll be me, PeeWee Longway, Young Thug, Dolph and of course Chief Keef," Gucci explained. "I even got songs with Waka on there. I'm just gonna drop a collection of all the best songs we've been making. I dropped a mixtape for every artist on my label, so now I feel like it's just time to put our album together and show everybody the chemistry we got together. [Waka?] There was more of a miscommunication and things got misconstrued. But we got too much of a good thing. Whatever we got to work out, we always work it out."
Gucci also explained what he feels Keef brings to the crew.
"He a big fan of mine and I just see a lot of potential in him. I feel like all these years I've been in the rap game, there's a lot of things that I wish I could have did a different way," Gucci said. "So I just feel like if nothing else, I just want to give him some advice so that he can just enjoy his career. Just show him that trouble is so easy to get into. It's really more of a big brother thing. There's a business arrangement of course, but I just really like him as a person. He hard. He for real. The young people take to what's real, what they perceive as authentic."
