Before we dive into Gucci Mane’s second mixtape in as many weeks, let’s take a quick look at just how much good Gucci has done for the world this year: there’s the way he pronounced Kevin Durant on “Good Drank” (or made bullets “tap dance” on Kodak Black’s “Vibin in this Bih”); “First Day Out Tha Feds” is a classic; the reunion on “Guwop Home” made my inner Young Thug stan weep.

Yes, his ego has proven to be too big for his own good many times over, but through it all, he's never let his lust for greatness drown out his love for humanity.
