Gucci Mane's third album of 2016, "The Return of East Atlanta Santa," drops on December 16.
What a run it's been for Gucci Mane this year. And it's not over. After three years in prison, he was freed at the end of May, and he dropped a crushing Mike Will-produced single, "First Day Out Tha Feds," the next day. Since, he's collaborated with basically all of the game's biggest stars and has released two solid albums, Everybody Looking, which made its chart debut at No. 2, and Woptober, which, of course, was one of the essential projects of last month. According to Guwop, the best is yet to come. He has another album, The Return of East Atlanta Santa, dropping in December, and he has already proclaimed it as the "Album of the Year."
Gucci Mane announced The Return of East Atlanta Santa just a few days after Woptober, and tonight, he has confirmed that his third album of the year will drop on December 16. Wop has already shared three new tracks since Woptober, "I Told You" (feat. Young Thug), "Floor Seats" (feat. Quavo), and "Moon Walk" (feat. Akon and Chris Brown), and each of them are of the requisite quality for The Return of East Atlanta Santa. He also recently acquired a new Santa Claus chain, which he felt was deserving of its own social media accounts.
