On Dec. 3, artist and entrepreneur Berner will release his new project Gotti. The album is slated to feature many of the biggest names in the culture including Future, Cozmo, Rick Ross, Nas, Jadakiss, Kevin Cossom, Rod Wave, Conway the Machine, Styles P, Benny the Butcher, Ty Dolla $ign, Ryn Nicole, Millyz, Wiz Khalifa, Janelle Marie, and Madeline Lauer. The most unique standout on the tracklist and muse for the album is John Gotti, the infamous Gangster and crime mob leader. Woven throughout the album, with the blessing from the Gotti family, are never before heard audio clips from Gotti’s deposition.
The first taste from the project, the Future-assisted “Draped Up,” arrived earlier this week. The song is a boastful look into the perks of the street game that effectively sets the tone for the album:
Three or four wars thirty-four stores, just seen another cover story on me by Forbes/ In a black Cadillac with the bulletproof doors, lift a hotel mama, white ashes on the floor/ Got a Plane Jane Rollie, I don’t need a whole kid/ Another billion of weed, I don’t need a whole brick
Just last month, Berner released his fifteenth solo LP, Russ Bufalino: The Quiet Don, named after the Italian-American crime boss of the 1900s. The project boasts 18 cuts and features from Wiz Khalifa, Tee Grizzley, G Herbo, Mozzy, Trae Tha Truth, Damian and Stephen Marley, and more. Russ Bufalino: The Quiet Don follows this year’s The Warning and Los Meros, two collaborative releases with R-Mean and legendary rapper B-Real, respectively. His last solo release, La Plaza, came out last November and was packed with dope assists like Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, Chris Brown, OMB Peezy, Nef The Pharoah, and plenty more.
Be sure to press play on “Draped Up” by Berner featuring Future.
