Diplo adds Gucci Mane to his ever growing list of contributors.
Radric Delantic Davis, better known as Gucci Mane, has been on the down low for a couple of years, but Diplo is about to change that. The two revealed on April 19th (Sunday) that a collaborative project is in the works, and the pairing between the two of them has broken the internet.
Gaining both support and ridicule, Gucci shared his excitement via Twitter, followed by confirmation from Diplo.
NEW EDM ALBUM WITH @diplo ON THE WAY !!!!!

The American DJ/producer however, was quick to deny that the album would be an “EDM” one.
In 2010, Diplo released a collection of remixes entitled “Diplo Presents: Free Gucci (Best Of The Cold War Mixtapes)”, so it only makes sense that Diplo would seek out Gucci for a new collaborative project. The 2010 mixtape received a mixed of praise and hate, but it just shows Diplo’s admiration for Gucci’s lyrical talent.
Personally, we don’t know what these two minds will yield considering that they’re creating a new album from scratch but we have no doubts that it’ll be a game changer. The album announcement follows a steady stream of Gucci Mane releases this year, including his triple album “Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, Dessert” EP, and “Trap House 5” mixtape.
