Gucci Mane is making his comeback Billboard official this week, coming in at the #2 overall spot with his latest album Everybody Looking, which also has a couple tracks debuting on the Hot 100.

Gucci Mane's "Everybody Looking" (Review)
I didn't listen to each and every one of the 32 projects Gucci Mane released during his three year stint in federal prison, but I can say that of the 15 or so I am familiar with, none have anything approaching how heavy the majority of his first post-prison release is.
