After watching many of his successors drop chart-topping releases throughout the year, Gucci Mane looks to be gearing up for some new heat of his own. This week, he liberates a new single titled “Both Sides,” which features assistance from Lil Baby and gives off the feeling of classic Guwop:

“I made it from the skreets, it ain’t no mercy on these skreets, it’s hot as mercury, these boys’ll merk you on these skreets/

These b***hes double dutch so quick, they’ll jap a n***a sheets, got n***as sleepin’ competin’ with n***as, I ain’t even competin’/

If you talk behind my back no need to dap me when you see me, ‘cause I ain’t gon’ share no tip when they pick you up off from the cement/

A real dope boy, I make it flood in any season, while rappers goin’ broke and blame corona as the reason.../”

While many of Gucci’s more recent clips portrayed his current life of luxury, the Joe Yung Spike-directed offering for “Both Sides” takes us through the real Atlanta, showcasing everything from a robbery in progress to COVID 19 testing sites — an interesting juxtaposition given that Gucci and Lil Baby have their crews out on the block in droves.

Previously, Gucci Mane dropped the holiday-themed East Atlanta Santa 3 back in December, which saw 16 tracks and features from Asian Doll, Jason Derulo, Kranium, Rich The Kid, and Quavo. In typical high-output fashion, he also dropped the albums Delusions of Grandeur and Woptober II the same year.

In a recent Instagram post, Gucci looked back to when he was last released from prison in 2016, making it clear that his code of the streets hasn’t changed:

“I [dropped] Traphouse May 24 2005 15 yrs ago started my career and I got out 4 years ago 2016 thanks all who stayed down f*** all y’all who snitched on me and switched sides!”
