#NewMusicTuesday: Gucci Mane: The Return of East Atlanta Santa
We’re less than a week away from Christmas, and iHeartRadio is gearing up by featuring iconic hip hop artist, Gucci Mane! Rocketing to mainstream success in 2009 with the LP The State vs. Radric Davis, Gucci’s album output has been prolific throughout his career, putting out an album nearly every year since 2005. Coming off his much-anticipated album release in the spring, Everybody Looking, Gucci Mane returns with the full length sequel to his Christmas-themed 2014 mixtape, East Atlanta Santa.
Gucci opens up his hip hop holiday LP with the jingle jam of the season, sampling the Christmas classic “Jingle Bells” on the song “St. Brick.” On this leading track, Gucci asserts himself as the Kris Kringle of rap — handing out sweet beats to listeners in need of an extra festive holiday tune. The rest of the album continues in similar fashion, with Gucci Mane breaking out bars of soon-to-be-classic Christmas-infused rap tracks. Without a doubt, The Return of East Atlanta Santa will be the most exciting and inventive holiday album you’ll hear this year!
So with only five days left until Christmas, get into the seasonal spirit and kick your week off right with the legendary hip hop stylings of Gucci Mane— right here on iHeartRadio!
