Mike-Will-Made-It sits down with Fadar and explains how Gucci Mane made "Everybody Lookin" in six day. Check out the excerpts below and flip over the FADER for the full article.
Had you guys discussed your plans for this new record at all prior to Gucci coming home, or did you jump right in and knock the whole thing out off the cuff?
We were talking to each other over text. Gucci like "Man, explain the beats to me." I'm like "I don't want to talk your head off over this [inmate texting service] CorrLinks stuff." He was like "Man, please talk my head off, I ain't got nothing else to do but read this."
So I'd be like, "This shit sound distorted, this shit sound like this." He'd be like, "We gotta have this shit real crazy, beats knocking hard." So I'm playing back whatever he said in text and that's the vibe I'm going on in the studio. Whatever he said to me that's what I was able to make. When he got out, he was hearing the beats, just like, "Oh yeah I got a song for that." Zaytoven send over a beat, "Oh yeah I got a song for that." Zaytoven pull up and we make a beat together, boom, wrote a song to it.
Gucci’s a machine man. That man's a machine. He's a great. I don't know how Tupac worked, I don't know how Biggie worked. I wasn't able to be there to witness it. But I'm here to witness Gucci Mane and he's making history. People have an idea but they don't really know. He's super smart, he's super ill, he want to see the next person win. He was able to see me at a young age and always fuck with me. And same thing with a lot of people coming up. He love that music and he's talented with that shit. I'm just happy to play my part, because dude's one of a kind.
