After a delay in dropping his second album in 2017, Gucci Mane has finally dropped “Mr.Davis“. October 13,2017, Gucci released his 11th studio album with seventeen tracks. These seventeen tracks are filled with Brr, Brr but yet you would notice the maturity in the artists’ approach.
With appearances by The Weekend, The Migos, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, School Boy Q, Chris Brown, Young Dolph, Slim Jxmmi, A$AP Rocky, Ty Dolla $ign, Monica, and more.
There is production by Metro Boomin, Southside, A1, Zaytoven, Young Berg, Detail, and more.
“Mr. Davis” is a variety of sounds where Gucci Mane has his appearances tap into their artistry with no effort. ” I Get A Bag” featuring The Migos is an example. Gucci Mane’s flow is compared to the long time collaborative group. Matter of fact, our first encounter with The Migos was with Gucci. With production by Metro Boomin and Southside, the track is pretty dope. Gucci Mane’s verse was the highlight. He fell right in with his flow and demeanor.
“Stunting Ain’t Nuthin” featuring Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi and Young Dolph is another highlight on the album. Slim Jxmmi definitely impressed our team because his verses were entertaining. Even Dolph’s verses was a good listen. Gucci Mane made a good choice with these artists combined on this album.
Listen to “Enormous” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and enjoy this feature as well. Gucci did it again with production by OG Parker, Rex Kudo, and TM88, which gave itself away throughout the entire song. The song has a definite feel for the ladies besides his potty mouth. Ty Dollar $ign has created a new sound for Gucci. This is one of our favorites on the album.
When hearing Big Sean as a feature on a track, you should know it has been twisted into his own way because of his originality. “Changed” is a fire track, especially with its content and objective. The track is produced by Key Wane, and has a glorify affect, as if it is apart of a testimony.
Our last highlight is “Miss My Woe” featuring Rico Love. Rico Love sings and actually apart of the production which is live as hell. Danja and Chris Bosh also has credits to production. The song begins with ” Took a shot Dusse, Now I’m Missing My Woe“. The song explains the pain from losing a close friend and how it affects Gucci. From a drug dealing lifestyle, not all make it to see 40 years old. Gucci reminiscences and adding Rico Love brings the track to a sentimental point.
Overall, “Mr.Davis” is a transition for Gucci Mane, but still you are able to hear that Mr.Zone 6 throughout the album. His features were remarkable and we use that word because Gucci has been an influence to the Trap Music genre. With his mishaps with prison, and being released making tons of music, Gucci is definitely the man.
