While all the Hip-Hop boys and girls were opening Christmas presents and stuffing their faces with sugar plums and candy canes, Gucci Mane was enjoying his state-issued holiday meal from a cold, dry cell.
The troubled rapper from the streets of Atlanta is currently facing 20 years in prison for packing pistols and even copping out to charges of a lesser extent will still have him on ice for a minute, most likely.
While all the legalities were being sifted out, Gucci Mane wisely continued to record for moments like this. The end result is Mr. La Flare's ninth studio album, The State Vs Radric Davis 2: The Caged Bird Sings. Albeit the guest appearances are light (Migos, Verse Simmons, Young Scooter, etc.) the album is a full 19 tracks, leaving no doubt that Gucci is telling his tale in full, without incriminating himself of course.
The productions include Gucci's usual suspects in Mike WiLL Made It, Zaytoven, Honorable C.N.O.T.E. and Drumma Boy, just to name a few.
