Status 10: What is it About La Flare?

The Status 10 would not be certified without Gucci Mane’s name on the list, wonder why? It’s very easy for people to criticize Gucci without paying the proper respect to his work ethic and credibility. Therefore I must take it upon myself to bring a couple key points to light.

First of all, for the past two years who’s mixtapes have gotten the most play in cars around the country? At one point, it seemed like Gucci mania on HU’s [Hampton University] campus. Once the boojee girls start listening to Gucci, I knew something was up. Maybe you have forgotten about mixtapes such as: Chicken Talk, Gangsta Grillz: The Movie and EA Sportscenter. When these mixtapes reached the ipods, laptops and CD players of the masses there was no competition. Hands down, La Flare is the people’s choice. It was my theory that Gucci had taken the mixtape game totally away from Lil’ Wayne (that’s another story for another day).

We also seem to forget that Gucci Mane has real street credibility; he beat a murder charge in 2006. That fact alone lets you know that he is actually involved in the activities that he raps about. You know the bricks, chickens, slabs etc.

Now he has a single with Mariah Carey “Obsessed”, BLING BLOW WOW! No seriously, that alone shows progression whether you want to acknowledge it or not. By the way, I’m totally sick of that song and the summer hit “Break Up”. If I never hear those tracks again I can die a happy man. I’m not saying that you have to like “Gucci Mane La Flare” or listen to his music but you must respect work ethic, if not then you must be infected with that good old hater-virus.

Here is my personal “La Flare FAV 5” in no particular order.

  1. Cuttin’ off fingers (Ice Attack)
  2. Laughin’ (Wilt Chamberlain 3)
  3. Money on the floor (Chicken Talk)
  4. Sportscenter (EA Sportscenter)
  5. Killed the parking lot (Gangsta Grillz: The Movie)

Here is the video for the song “First Day Out” from the mixtape Writings on The Wall.
