Gucci Mane has reacted to being excluded from a recent “Mixtape Mount Rushmore” meme, and he’s none too pleased with the snub.
LaFlare sat down with Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller for the Rap Radar podcast on Friday (December 15), and responded to Wilson’s question about his exclusion.
“I definitely belong there on the Mount Rushmore of anything,” Gucci said. “That’s just my opinion, but I’m biased.”
He continued: “I’m not blind, you know. I’ve got different criteria that what I judge than what, probably, you judge. Or somebody else might judge. Or the popular opinion might judge.”
Gucci Mane stopped by the podcast with the recently freed B.G. to promote their joint mixtape Choppers & Bricks, and the pair have revealed that they equally impressed each other as they were putting the project together.
In the same interview, the Southern rap legends gave each other their flowers for the verses they each put down.
“When he told me let’s do the tape and start sending me records, it became apparent to me soon like damn, all these songs hard,” La Flare said.
B.G. added: “I ain’t lying, though – there was a couple of records that I sent and he sent back that I wanted to change my verse on. I called him like, ‘Wop, man, you crushed me on this one! I think I might need to go back in.’ But I ain’t go back in and touch it though. And he’d hit me like, ‘Aw man you got off on this record!’ And I’m like aight yeah, that’s what’s up. But yeah, it was a friendly competition but I think we pushed each other to go hard and it came out to be what it is.”
Choppers & Bricks serves as B.G.’s first full-length project since he was released from prison in September after spending more than a decade behind bars.
