With Gucci Mane putting the finishing touches on his anticipated Evil Genius album, Guwop unleashes the project's second single by teaming up with Lil Pump for "Kept Back." The Murda Beatz-produced track served as Zane Lowe's World Record for Thursday (August 9) over at Apple Music's Beats 1 station.
On the tune's second verse, the ATLien hints at his forthcoming biopic that is currently in the works. "Baby you a human jacuzzi/ I'ma twist a bitch like a Rubik's/ I might turn my book into a movie (Gucci)/ I'mma put a bitch in a movie, porno/ Rockstar couple, Cher, Bono," he rhymes.
Gucci shared some insight into what fans can expect from Evil Genius during his FaceTime chat with Zane Lowe. "I really just been compiling a bunch songs. Listening to beats. I went in with Metro Boomin], I did a bunch songs with Southside, Honorable C.N.O.T.E and really wanted to just have a chance to almost make a mixtape worth songs with all the producers that I like," the Trap God explains. "I picked maybe like 60 or 70 songs."
The 38-year-old later unveiled some the collaborators he worked alongside on the record. "I usually just take twenty songs and put them out but this time I really recorded a bunch songs and then picked through them," he says. "I've got a dope record with Offset. I've got a crazy song with Quavo. I’ve got a song with 21 Savage. I got one with Kevin Gates. I got one with NBA Young Boy."
