Gucci Mane has announced a new series of albums which will feature contributions from Migos, Young Thug, and Peewee Longway.
Last summer, Gucci Mane hit us with a trilogy of albums in one day, dropping the World War 3 series, based on three of his greatest vices; Gas, Molly, and Lean. Ironically, the drank-inspired project was easily the strongest of the series, showcasing the new wave of his carefully built Brick Squad crew, the potential of which only becoming clear to most after Wop's most recent arrest.
After releasing the Brick Factory Vol. 1mixtape earlier this week, Gucci has announced another round of WW3 releases, which much like Lean, put an emphasis on the Brick Squad family.
It seems as though the albums will likely consist of older material the artists previously recorded for Brick Squad. As we know, Gucci still has partial ownership of Young Thug's material (though as far as we know, Migos have never been part of the imprint, which leaves some questions unanswered).
Check out Gucci's tweets, which reveal the release date and acronym for each project below.

[Update: Artwork Revealed]
Gucci Mane has revealed the artwork for all 3 of his upcoming albums, which will now apparently drop simultaneously on June 17th. The covers suggest that the albums are in fact GuWop records, and simply features the other artists previously mentioned. The Green Album, however, makes no reference to Migos on the cover.
Guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens on June 17th. Check out the covers in the gallery above.
