Gucci Mane ft Raury
Dead People

Gucci Mane has been no stranger to controversy throughout his career. Whether it’s his countless stints in jail, his beef with other rappers, or his ice cream tat, Gucci has always been a polarizing figure in the hip-hop scene. No matter what your opinion of him though, good or bad, there’s one thing about Gucci that demands respect: he is always willing to put on up-and-coming artists. While the cynical among us may see this as a ploy to leech onto younger talent in an effort to remain relevant, we think the Burr man has good intentions. Here we have just the latest example, as he teams up with stalwart youth, Raury, for “Dead People.”

Armed with a hypnotic hook about stuffing his pockets with “Dead People” (a common rap idiom that refers to one’s love of wealth), and the evil voices in his head that command him to collect as much of it as possible, Gucci turns in a deft performance, while Raury backs him up with a compelling verse of his own. It’s not often that we get a chance to hear Raury spit, but it’s no secret at this point that the fledgling artist can pack a punch on the mic. Check out the infectious tune above, which we hope is just one of many more collaborations between these two in the future.
