I Told You by Gucci Mane ft. Young Thug is getting some serious love on the internet this week.
Mike Will Made It and Zaytoven joint produced the track which was released on Gucci Mane’s Soundcloud on the 2nd of November.
The song already has 354,000 plays on Soundcloud. It was featured on Hype Machine’s Twitter account as one of the new tracks getting the most buzz this week.
Gucci Mane, in a fit of prophetic genius, foretold of the track’s coming popularity: A nigga so handsome/These White women say that they want me/They say that I’m country but I’m number one in the country/It’s no need to tell me, I know you lil nig*** is hungry.
It’s not just this popular new song that has Mane’s name on the tip of everyone’s tongue. His retail mixtape Woptober (it gets shouted out at the beginning of I Told You though the song is not on said mixtape) made it all the way up to number 43 on the US Billboard 200.
Young Thug provides the vocals for the hook and he spits a verse in the in between time. Young Thug blends his singing and rapping together effectively on both hook and verse. He doesn’t hit the track quite as hard as Gucci does but then again, as his name implies, he hasn’t been in the game quite as long.
This isn’t the first collaboration between the two rappers. Young Thug appeared on Gucci Mane’s Guwop Home in July of this year. Mane was on Young Thug’s Again last year. Most recently the two performed together at the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
This continues Gucci Mane’s insanely busy 2016 which has seen him release a studio album, two EPs, 3 Mixtapes and countless singles as well as guest appearances and compilations albums.
