Mariah Carey Remix Puts the ‘G in Ghetto’

Mariah Carey is collaborating with Gucci, and this time, it’s not on her designer ensemble.

The superstar hinted that she recorded a remix to “Obsessed,” the first single off her new album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, with an unspecified rapper.

“Listening to ‘Obsessed’ remix on repeat, -guest rapper-cant tell u who it is but he put the G in Ghetto!” tweeted her friend Jasmine Dotiwala. “Sick combo-hotness.”

The special guest has been revealed as Gucci Mane. In an interview with DJ Drama on Hot 107.9 in Atlanta, the ATL-raised MC confirmed that he was in the studio with Mariah and laid down a verse on the remix to “Obsessed.” Gucci has a strong presence on the underground scene. His highest commercial-charting hit was “Freaky Gurl” off 2006’s Hard to Kill.

The original version of “Obsessed” will premiere on Tuesday on Chicago’s B96.
