Gucci gang. Gucci Mane teams up with Lil Pump on his new single “Kept Back.”
The song, which premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record, finds La Flare rapping over the Murda Beatz production. “Murder on the beat with the murder man,” he raps, while Pump adds his own icy flow: “Wrist so cold, need a icepack.”
The two previously worked together on “Youngest Flexer” off Pump’s self-titled mixtape. “I like Pump. I just feel like they got a lot of energy,” Guwop told Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “I like the way they promote themselves. I’m a big fan of Pump, I think he be flowing. They make good music so I wanted to collab with them. They’re dope.”
The song follows the Migos and Lil Yachty-assisted “Solitaire” off Gucci’s upcoming album Evil Genius, which will also feature collaborations with Quavo, Kevin Gates, 21 Savage, and YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
“I really just been compiling a bunch of songs,” said Gucci. “I went in with Metro [Boomin], I did a bunch of songs with Southside, C.N.O.T.E. Just really wanted to just have a chance to almost make a mixtape worth of songs with all the producers that I like. I picked maybe like 60 or 70 songs. I usually just take 20 songs and put them out, but this time I really recorded a bunch of songs and then picked through them.”
