Song of the Day: Gucci Mane

Gucci Mane continues his prolific streak of mixtapes with Burrrprint 2, which came out today. This isn't too notable -- except that he's currently in prison. Most of the songs were recorded before he hit the clink, but he apparently dropped one track over the phone from prison.

"Gucci called me from Fulton County and told me to start recording," host DJ Holiday explained in a statement. "He busted a hot verse right there on the phone and that's what you hear on the record, with the one-minute automated warning and all, 'you have one minute remaining', it's so real."

Pretty sweet. It doesn't use the man-can't-get-me-down recording acrobatics, but "Parked Outside" is trademark Gucci -- marble-mouthed swagger, sighing desperation, love of automobiles and fuzzy, epic backbeat.
