Release Date: 2014 | Tracklist

Review Summary: Two dangerous forces join together to cause chaos and fuck your girl.

On their own, trap forerunner Gucci Mane and infamous drill popularizer Chief Keef, who also goes by Sosa, can make sharp hip-hop, chock full of charisma and witty one-liners. Both artists have made strides in popularizing their respective rap subgenres and, in the process, have put out some damn engaging releases. When these artists come together, though, they can make something ingeniously fun. The two “Gs” can bring out the best in each other and the beats they utilize.

This joint mixtape shows both rappers building on each other’s style, accommodating for the differences in approach. However, this does not mean that Gucci and Keef compromise what makes them unique; Gucci still has his effortlessly smooth flow and Keef is still just as attention-grabbing and jagged as ever. The two have a certain synergy which comes into fruition on tracks such as Paper, Top In The Trash, and Start Pimpin’. The synergy is further strengthened by the fun bars, focusing on the usual clever lines about money, drugs, and sex, which benefit from the collaboration, as well as suiting the loose nature of this project.

The beats showcased here, created by people such as Mike WiLL Made-It, 808 Mafia, and The Honorable C.N.O.T.E., provide a great frame for these bars, which are both fun loving and dark, just like the performances from Sosa and Gucci. Various samples and cymbals are used to accent the drill standards and the snares hit hard. These beats are simple, yet enjoyable enough to be blasted at obnoxious volumes, the way this kind of music was meant to be played. Whatever holes these instrumentals do leave are filled in by the star attractions with extreme ease.

Big Gucci Sosa’s album art features the two rappers depicted as Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees and despite the unfortunate comparison that could be made to the lackluster Freddy Vs. Jason films, this depiction shows them as the monstrous forces they are. Sure, they may miss a beat here and there, but they are vicious and a threat to be reckoned with. If you mess with the Big Gucci Sosa, you better expect the worst.

sosa actually spits traditionally in turn up

and besides clearly being built upon waves of one-liners and devoid of the many nuances that make so many good 'spitters' 'amazing' its freaking GREAT

dude is so good at picking what to do on a song

This looks like a good time

Also, I think you had a repeat fragment in there on accident.
