Lil Uzi Vert and Gucci Mane link up for a new 7-track EP, 1017 vs. The World which features production from Zaytoven, Honorable C-Note, DP Beatz and Mannie Fresh.
Before Gucci releases his third album of the year, The Return Of East Atlanta Santa, he decides to team up with Future for the follow-up to 2011’s Free Bricks. And according to a conversation between Miss Info and Gucci the EP was recorded less than a day ago…
“Last night, me and Future met up in Atlanta. We ditched our entourages, we didn’t book my usual studio, or his usual studio…it’s like we knew we wanted to fly under the radar,” says Gucci. “There was like this positive competition in the room. I’d hear him go in on a verse, and I knew I had to step up.”
He continues: “He would say, the same back, and we knocked out 6 songs so crazy that I knew we couldn’t just sit on it. We talked about recording some more, adding more songs. But I didn’t want to over think it or over plan things. Even Future didn’t think we were dropping this tonight. This is the freshest it can get. These joints ain’t even 24 hours old. That’s like bringing you in the studio with us.”
