The Appeal: Georgia's Most Wanted
by Gucci Mane
Released: Sep 2010
Label: Asylum/Warner Bros.
Why does Gucci Mane keep getting in legal trouble? "I've got a hard head like my daddy had," he confesses on "Grown Man" from The Appeal: Georgia's Most Wanted. It's not much of an explanation, but at least it's a first step at much-needed introspection. Don't worry, Gucci hasn't gone soft: he's more comfortable dropping "Trap Talk" and "Making Love to the Money" over production from Swizz Beatz ("Gucci Time"), the Neptunes ("Haterade") and Drumma Boy ("Weirdo"). Several albums deep, the "Zone 6" Atlanta trapper knows how to rock a down-South party, although The Appeal rarely transcends it.
