Gucci Mane and Zaytoven have been making, releasing, and defining hip-hop for years, even during Gucci's current incarceration. But their latest collection Mama's Basement is a series of previously unreleased recordings before either of them made it big, tracks that reflect the mixtape's title in their scrappy, underground nature. If you've been hungering for some of their classic Atlanta sound and chemistry, Mama's Basement is raw, unfinished, and bumping nostalgia trip of songs you haven't experienced yet. Listen below, and dive further into Gucci's beginnings with our profile Hard to Kill: The Oral History of Gucci Mane. You can track Zaytoven's musical development with his FADER mix and edition of Beat Construction.
