Gucci Mane's unfortunate prison stint has become a running joke in rap talks, mainly because his cell seems wholely incabable of stopping him from releasing new music. On "1017 Thug Introduction (Beast Mode)" he states this is the last release from the 1017 Thug series, so these might the final tracks to trickle down from Young Thug's tenure on Gucci's imprint. It makes sense: though firmly in line with Thug's own eccentricities, the track lacks some of the smoothness and refinement of the joyous "Lifestyle," and his later more polished work. But, new Thugger Thugger remains a reason for celebration. 1017 Thug 3: The Finale lands on iTunes this Friday.
