Gucci Mane “Jewelry Selection” Mixtape Download & Stream
Gucci Mane releases his Official Mixtape Jewelry Selection, Hosted by DJ Holiday. The 17-track tape has Features from Swizz Beatz & Talib Kweli.
Gucci Mane is a rap version of Heath Ledger‘s Joker, his exaggerated mania grounded by the violent reality he represents, the more rote gangster formulas given new life by his colorful charisma. For the tape he teams up with DJ Holiday. Swizz Beatz has a feature on the tape on “Gucci Time“, as well as the random guest appearance from Talib Kweli on “Poltergeist“.
Jewelry Selection displays Gucci Mane starting to experiment more, rather than sticking to the bread-and-butter style that got him here in the first place. There are snippets in Jewelry Selection that are heavily influenced by pop and/or contemporary R&B. “Something just to get the people ready to know that I’m coming,” Gucci Mane said about Jewelry Selection. “I don’t want them to be surprised when they hear my album how slick and clever I am on the mic. It’s just a prelude.” When Gucci Mane sticks to his roots, he aces it.
Jewelry Selection embodies Gucci’s offbeat eccentricities that constantly contrast with his tough-guy persona. The mix has a handful of gems, all of which retain the inventive and sometimes absurd lyricism that makes Gucci Mane so appealing. Notable tracks are “Making Love To The Money“, “Trap Talk“, “Gross” and “Cleopatra“. His Swizz Beatz-produced single “Gucci Time” featuring a Justice sampling, was also set to become the single on his upcoming album, The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted, due September 28th. In the end, Jewelry Selection once again shows Gucci Mane pushing into new creative terrain. Follow on Twitter @gucci1017 @Djholiday @MedievalBeatz Hip Hop Beats For Sale
