Gucci Mane’s ‘Mr. Davis’ Album Pushed Back
It looks like we're all going to have to wait just a little bit longer for the next Gucci Mane album. Recently, it was revealed that his newest project, titled Mr. Davis, has been pushed back to Oct. 13 on iTunes from its original Sept. 15 release date.
Gucci tweeted that the album would be dropping on Oct. 17, but in an interview with MTV, he talks about why he chose a different date. "I planned on originally putting it out September the 15th," he told MTV News. "Then, I started [thinking], October the 17th, but that's the day I get married [...] I love putting music out on 10/17. I feel like, it'd even make the whole wedding more powerful, because that's like, my national holiday! In my mind, it's coming out 10/17, but I'm dropping it early, Friday the 13th."
Now, Mr. Davis is all set to drop just a few days before Gucci's marriage to Keyshia Ka’oir, which will be the focus of a new BET Special.
Guwop's first book, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, is also coming out Sept. 19, and just this week, he dropped "Curve," a new collab with The Weeknd.
With a book, a new album and a wedding on the way, Gucci's got a lot going for him these days. Roughly a year-and-a-half ago, he was sitting in a prison cell. Now, he's prospering, and this past spring he even called the time he spent between his release from prison and the release date for his Drop Top Wop album the best year of his life.
“This has been the best year of my life,” Gucci told Zane Lowe. “It has been a hell of an experience, you know. And I just feel like the best way for me to celebrate is to celebrate with my fans that supported me all while I was gone. The fans who supported me the whole year I been back,” he said of dropping the project on the anniversary of his release from prison.
Gucci Mane's album may have been pushed back, but make no mistake: Gucci season is still in full effect. Pre-order Mr. Davis on iTunes and peep the album tracklist.
