GUCCI MANE PREPARES RELEASE OF STREET ALBUM, THE RETURN OF MR. ZONE 6, AND RETURN TO MUSIC FOR THE STREETS
After a series of well-publicized and wily events, Radric Davis, better known as Gucci Mane, is getting back to the music. On March 22, 2011 the Atlanta enigma will release the next chapter in his series of street albums titled The Return of Mr. Zone 6. The disc will be available on online music stores as well as in local retailers.
“This street album is a return to the music that got me buzzin’ in the first place,” expresses Gucci. “It didn’t really make sense to not have some of the people who’ve been responsible for some of my best street records behind me.”
Gucci Mane teamed up with long-time collaborator Drumma Boy to produce the majority of the album with producers Southside and Zaytoven each contributing a song to the 13-track release. Features on the album include Brick Squad counterparts Waka Flocka Flame, OJ Da Juiceman, Cash Money’s Birdman, Wale, Master P, Webbie, 8ball, Rocko and Wooh the Kid.
Tracklisting is as follows:
1. 24 Hours

In March of 2010, Gucci Mane released The Burrrprint 2 for purchase between 2009’s critically acclaimed The State vs. Radric Davis and it’s follow-up The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted where it cracked the Billboard 200’s Top 20 releases with almost 20K copies sold in its first week. While these past efforts marked Gucci’s experimentation with different sounds and styles, the rapper touts The Return of Mr. Zone 6 as a reintroduction to the music so popular amongst his most ardent of fans.
“2009 was a great year. 2010 was a hell of a year. I’m hoping 2011 will be a hell of a great year. This project is going to set the tone for the new decade and I can’t wait for the feedback from the supporters, haters and everyone in between. I’m back, yall. BRRR!!!”
