Prolific Atlanta-based rapper Gucci Mane is back with another new album, The Return of East Atlanta Santa. The digital release (the follow-up to Woptober, which came out less than two months ago) will be available exclusively via iTunes and Apple Music beginning December 16th. Gucci Mane previously released a mixtape called East Atlanta Santa in 2014, and second one called East Atlanta Santa 2: The Night GuWop Stole X-Mas, on Christmas Day 2015.
At the November 22nd Atlanta Hawks game versus the New Orleans Pelicans at Philips Arena, Gucci Mane proposed (via the jumbotron “kiss cam”) to his longtime girlfriend, fitness and makeup model Keyshia Ka’oir. The rapper reportedly put a 25-karat diamond engagement ring on her finger, estimated to have cost several million dollars. He also performed at that night’s game during halftime. A wedding date has been set for October 17th, significant because 1017 is Gucci’s record label, named for the address of his grandfather’s Georgia house.
