Gucci Mane - Brick Factory Vol. 31017Gucci Mane has been incarcerated since September 2013, but that hasn't stopped the infamous.
Gucci Mane has been incarcerated since September 2013, but that hasn’t stopped the infamous and prolific emcee from releasing nearly 20 batches of material recorded before he was locked up. With Brick Factory Vol. 3, it seems the well has finally run dry.
Gucci shows up on the opening track, then disappears for the rest of the album, leaving the heavy lifting to disciples like Young Thug, Peewee Longway and multiple interchangeable rappers with the MPA prefix, making this the weakest of the Brick Factory releases.
The album screams “throwaway.” Even the frequently unstoppable Young Thug has trouble overcoming the cheap-sounding video game plinks and frequently puerile hooks. It’s Thug’s pal Longway who ends up the star of the tape, displaying sly wit, slipping into a hypnotizing double time at a moment’s notice and imbuing his raps with the same larger-than-life wonder that once buoyed Gucci’s career.
