[artist id=”1938028″]Gucci Mane[/artist] sure is happy to be home. The Atlanta rapper was released from prison in May, and he’s been working feverishly ever since. Not only is he crafting his upcoming album, The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted, but fans can look forward to seeing the Southern MC onscreen soon too.
Gucci recently teamed with Lil Wayne to shoot the video (albeit separately) for their collaboration “We Be Steady Mobbin’,” from Young Money’s compilation album. In exclusive footage from the set provided to MTV News by DJ Scoob Doo, who directed the clip, Gucci beams while texting Drake about a song the pair recorded together.
“Drake just hit me about the song we did,” Gucci tells Scoob as he taps back a message to the Toronto lyricist. “We going in.”
The “We Be Steady Mobbin’ ” video is set to premiere on the Fourth of July on MTV Jams. And behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the clip will be featured on DJ Scoob Doo’s latest DVD , “Entourage: Fetti Holmes Edition.” In addition to Gucci, Wayne and Drake, the project will also feature appearances by Birdman and Jadakiss.
In another scene from the DVD, Gucci is seen talking to Ciara about the visual he and Weezy completed; the two rappers weren’t able to film any scenes together since Wayne began his jail sentence in New York just a week before Gucci was released.
“We shooting my part, but Wayne already shot his part before going to jail,” Gucci Mane says to Ciara during a phone call.
Since his release, Gucci Mane has said he’s embraced a straight-and-narrow path, vowing not to make the kinds of mistakes that nearly derailed his burgeoning career.
“I feel like I got a whole new beginning, like my career just started again,” he said in May.
