Since Gucci was released from prison May 26th, he got right to work with his first jail-post single “First Day Out The Feds.” This track was nothing short of SPECTACULAR EITHER. From here he went on to release three commercial SUCCESSFUL albums, Everybody Looking, Woptober and The Return of East Atlanta Santa. During this time he scored his first Billboard Hot 100 No.1 single with “Black Beatles” alongside Rae Sremmurd. To celebrate the one-year anniversary of his prison release in style, he collaborates with one of the best Trap Producers in Metro Boomin to bring us DropTopWop, about a month ago (May 26). This project features tracks with Offset, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz and Young Dolph. The fact that it took Gucci and Metro two days to make this is mind blowing.
Top 5 Songs
5. BOTH EYES CLOSED
Really dope track that featured some diversity on each artist’s verse. 2 Chainz in a very animated sound raps about his trap resume as Young Dolph was very nonchalent in his delievry on why he should be looked up to and highlight his street movements. These two complimented Guwop nicely on here.
4. DANCE WITH THE DEVIL
On here Gucci comes across cool and calm, well relatively mellow. Then his mood and the tone in his voice gets amplified as he talks about what it takes to get this girl, from my understanding, to join the DARK SIDE. For me the lyrics were okay but i loved the concept of the song.
3. HURT A N***A FEELINGS
GUCCI WILL HURT A N***A FEELINGS.
This was Gucci’s best lyrical track on here. I love his delivery on this track too! This is a most play in the clubs today. Right? If not it should be!
1. MET GALA
This track is dumb hype. You have Offset ad libbing heavy and providing that similar flow/feel ‘Bad & Boujee’. Offset made sure he put his best forward since he was teaming up with the OG Gucci Mane. This is a very good collaboration and the production….. yeah you get it.
1. 5 Million Intro (3.7/5)
2. Tho (3.8/5)
3. Hurt a N***a Feelings (4.5/5)
4. Helpless (4.5/5)
5. Met Gala ft. Offset (5/5)
6. Finesse the Plug (Interlude) (3.5/5)
7. Dance with the Devil (4/5)
8. Both Eyes Closed ft. 2 Chainz & Young Dolph (4/5)
9. Bucket List (3.5/5)
10. Loss 4 Wrdz ft. Rick Ross (4/5)
“DropTopWop” opens up with “5 million Intro” where Gucci is on here super flamboyant rapping about not having time for the bullshit. The chorus and lyrics here sound good here. Its a decent intro track. Up next is “Tho Freestyle,” where Gucci addresses the cloning rumors due to his change in appearance after jail. The fact people really thought this man was clowned was the dumbest shit ever. Y’all really have to create some bullshit when others change their life for better huh?! Well its all good because Gucci is so hip. On the next track “Hurt A N***a Feelings,” we here them infamous Gucci lyrics on how he shits on his doubters by flexing his wealth on them at the club. Talk your shit Gucci! “Helpless” was a very interesting track for me because when i first heard it i was not digging it what so ever but it’s grown. It obviously grew on me enough to be my second favorite song on here. The following track “Met Gala” might have been the best produced track on here. Shout out to Metro Boom in and Southside! This track features Offset and on here he and Gucci sound fantastic. Is Offset the best Migo? 🤔 An interesting collaboration was Gucci teaming up with 2 Chainz and Young Dolph on the track “Both Eyes Closed,” making clever references to Cartier designs and living recklessly with the items their success bought them. The closing track “Lost 4 Wrdz,” features my guy Ricky Rozay and this track actually is really dope for the fact it exemplifies various side effects from trending drugs such as marijuana or lean.
Conclusion and Rating
This was not that revolutionary project that is supposed to shake the game up nor was Gucci Mane attempting to speaking the “truth” to the masses and force a view point that the world must see. I was definitely hoping for more on a project which is produced by the hottest producer in the game with a legend and act we all love in Gucci but it just wasn’t what I expected it to be. But don’t get me wrong! Gucci Mane and Metro Boomin’, and the projects features made something fun together and that’s all that is needed to make good music.
