Gucci's been freed, and with his release, he's letting loose a series of sick spits and licks! Gucci Mane is set to release the second part of his trilogy The State Vs. Radric Davis, The Appeal, at the end of the summer and is planning a worldwide tour to promote the upcoming effort. A fresh start with a new record label, a new management and some new collaborations will do any hustler right.
She Geeked is officially the first track Gucci did after his release from county jail. It's a track by Sean Garrett, which also features Tyga. Mane sounds a little softer than he did when compared to his pre-jail verses, but it’s a killer cut nevertheless. Sticky's Jumeirah Riddim gets a hot drop towards the end of the track too...major. The song will appear on Garrett’s upcoming mixtape, Inkwell.
Gucci's also made a cameo on a French Montana track produced by J. Cardim. Busy boy's keepin' his nose to the grind and out of trouble. Grab Straight Cash along with She Geeked below.
Note: "she geeked" is my new summa catchphrase. Thanks Mane.
Earlier this year, Sticky's Jumeirah Riddim was a constant staple of my playlist rotationals. Hell, it still is...who am I kidding. With a stringed bass and beat that makes my pulse race like none other, it's easy to see, nay HEAR, why I love it...in addition to the respect it garnered from being used in a Ludacris track.

Prepare yourself for a pleasure of guilty proportions. There's a reason that I've fallen into swoon-mode for Ludacris' track, My Chick Bad; and before you jump to conclusions, no, it's not solely because of the rad drop from Nicki Minaj, who we pined for earlier this week.
The noticeably-rad bass and string line used in Luda's track, from his upcoming album Battle of the Sexes, actually is a sample from Mixpak artist, Sticky.
This past November, the London-based producer released his Jumeirah Riddim EP, from which Ludacris pays homage to the title instrumental by slowing it down and giving it a sexy hood swagger. Personally we're fans of Sticky's original, but normally that's the way it goes. Now if only we could get Miss Minaj to spit a lick over it, we'd be all set. (watch Luda's video here)
