Gucci Mane - Delusions of Grandeur

July 31, 2019 - 11 views

The fourteenth studio album release by rapper Gucci Mane, Delusions of Grandeur was released on June 21st, 2019. Three singles support the album, "Love Thru the Computer" featuring Justin Bieber, "Backwards" featuring Meek Mill and "Proud of You." Sometimes referred to as D.O.G., the album was the second released in a period of less than six months. In the album, Gucci Mane plays on the strength of featuring artists such as Jeremih, Navé Monjo, and others giving the album a quality that is similar to R&B. Mane still acknowledges and incorporates his trap roots though, creating flows that work across several different tempos and moods. This steady quality weaves Mane's hardcore, cutting lyrics into songs that are otherwise low-key.
Surprise guest Justin Bieber may seem like an unusual pairing for well known badasses like Gucci Mane, but the juxtaposition of the two work well on the track, "Love Thru the Computer." This single pits Mane's hard, raw romance against Bieber's infectious cuteness, resulting in a song that is both high energy and very soulful.
Many fans of Gucci Mane will be pleased to find that his quality and style has remained much the same, even with the high production of two albums so close together. Gucci Mane is an institution of his own in the rap world. Since he came onto the trap scene in 2001, Mane has been pumping out solid songs with good flows and lyrics that cut like a knife. From the looks of it, that's not changing any time soon.
