Gucci Mane has been keeping himself busy behind bars. The rapper penned a letter to fans, and dropped three brand new tracks for good measure.

In the letter, Gucci talks about being more than just a rapper, and how he’s different from other entertainers. What apparently separates him is that others want a major label “machine” behind them, while Guwop is his own “machine.”

He writes:

Dear Fans,

If someone asked me to describe who I am? I would say that I am a man. I am a man that makes mistakes, I am a man that takes pride in getting back up anytime I fall. I am not the typical entertainer. I have made a profession out of writing and recording music but I’m more than a rapper. The difference between me and the average entertainer is the dream of signing to a major label so they can have a giant machine push them and propel them to stardom, but I don’t have that dream. My reality is I am all I got, I am the machine behind me. The streets designed me and the Trap named me God.

I am a machine. They call me Gucci some call me Guwop but they should call me The Machine.


Gucci, a.k.a. “The Machine” is scheduled for release next year.
