D-O-G Delusions Of Grandeur drops this Friday, June 21st.
Gucci Mane is back in album mode. The trapstar shared on social media the other day — with his new cut-up body — that his newt project, D-O-G Delusions Of Grandeur, will be dropping this Friday, June 21st. Today, he’s back with the LP’s latest single, “Proud Of You.”
Produced by the in-demand Kenny Beats, who retains an uncanny ability to tailor his musical strategy around the given artist, “Proud Of You” is a layered instrumental that harbors ominous vibes, complementing Gucci’s almost menacing flow and delivery. The quasi threatening tone is an implicit warning to all of his competitors and adversaries.
Throughout “Proud Of You,” Gucci is outwardly speaking to himself, applauding his triumphs attained in the face of adversity (like serving a three-year jail bid), but this self-adulation carries implied jabs at his peers: this braggadocios rhetoric is intended to make all other rappers insecure with not achieve Gucci-level fame and wealth.
“Proud Of You” follows Gucci’s previously-released D-O-G Delusions Of Grandeur single, “Backwards” featuring Meek Mill. The music video for this lead album track was released on June 17th.
