In anticipation of his forthcoming album The Return of East Atlanta Santa, Gucci Mane was interviewed by Jemele Smith on ESPN discussion show His & Hers earlier today. Guwop covered a wide variety of topics, including his sobriety, his prison mixtapes and his Rae Sremmurd collaboration, “Black Beatles.” When asked how he was able to put out such a vast amount of work while locked up, Gucci shares: “While I was away, I came up with a strategy. I was like I wanted to have a presence even though I wasn’t physically there. So I just instructed my team, I said, ‘Every song that I record, everything that’s on my computer, on my hard drive, we’re going to release it. Just a way to make money and keep my name going while I was away.” Watch the interview below.
