Last year, a few months after he called Waka Flocka Flame “disloyal” and tried to dump him from Bricksquad over Twitter, Gucci Mane told FADER that he hoped the two long-time collaborators would be friends again. “This isn’t the first time that me and Waka been at odds with each other,” he said. “We always work it out. This is like the sixth or seventh time. I don’t see no difference between this and the last one.” Well, it’s time to add another time to that tally because “Shine,” the latest drop off Young Thugga Mane La Flare, one of the two projects Gucci Mane will release on April 1, finds the on-again-off-again rappers reunited. Are they back in working order? Are these old files salvaged for release? Did Waka get to sign-off on this? Would Gucci Mane, given his precarious legal situation, care what he thinks? Only time will tell. Until then, listen below.
