Though we dearly miss his public presence, we're grateful Guwop and his team have continued to bless us with new music throughout the year. And, behind bars, Gucci can still feel the love, and, tonight, on "Guwop Day," he's written an inspiring letter to his fans. 

In the letter, Gucci explains the difference between himself and a major label rapper. Unlike the latter, writes Gucci, "The streets signed me and the trap named me God."

He also suggests that fans make an addition to his plethora of nicknames and start calling him "The Machine." Whereas most rappers enlist the help of "the machine" -- a major label -- to achieve their success, Guwop writes, "I am the machine behind me." Read the full letter below.
