Gucci Mane's prolific output has not seen any signs of slowing despite the rapper being locked up for over a year, and 2016 will likely continue that tangent as the rapper has announced a new project.

In a recent letter from prison, Gucci game himself a new nickname -- The Machine; the pseudonym being a reference to his ability to put out music at an inhuman pace and function as his own label.

The Machine is now the title of the rapper's next project, set for release in "early 2016" according to his Instagram. The announcement comes with artwork that depicts Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill, only he's decked out in robotic accessories and of course, has an ice cream tattoo on his right cheek.

We're sure we'll still hear more from Gucci before the new year, but we're pretty excited for this one. Check the art below.
