Gucci Mane Wants to Make You Feel “Powerful, Aggressive, Invincible”

"I never really made music to make people try to feel sad. I don’t want people to feel sorry for me."

With his first post-prison album Everybody Looking making the rounds and emerging as his highest-charting debut yet, Gucci Mane connected with FADER for an in-depth new interview. Speaking to Andrew Nosnitsky, Guwop opened up about his experiences in prison, drugs, his music and more. Young Thug even provided a few statements for the feature, expressing the following thoughts about Gucci to FADER:

“He taught me everything,” Thug says. “Most definitely he taught me don’t never stop. He was rapping every day, all day and all night. He’ll be mad at me if I’d leave the ‘yo [the studio]. He’d be like, ‘Man, you dead broke and you goddamn running around and I’m up a whole lot of millions and I’m working every day. How the hell that look?’”

Notably, Gucci Mane shared this regarding the intentions behind his music:

I never really made music to make people try to feel sad. I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. I want them to feel powerful, I want them to feel aggressive, I want them to feel invincible. I want to hear the fuckery. I want to hear the shit that people probably think, ‘This ain’t good to be played around kids.’”
