Gucci also delivers a video for 'Off the Boat.'

Gucci Mane made his long-awaited return with the release of his Evil Genius album on Friday (Dec. 7).

The project is loaded with a strong cast assisting on his fifth post-prison LP, as Guwop notches features from Quavo, 21 Savage, Lil Skies, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Kodak Black, Migos, and Bruno Mars, to name a few. 

Earlier this week (Dec. 6), the trap pioneer stopped by Beats 1 to chop it up with Zane Lowe, where he detailed his hopes for the project. "I think this time, this album was like the first time I kind of had more fun making the records," Gucci admitted. "I want it just to be classic. I want people to be like, 'Damn, Gucci. This album right here, there's something special about it.'"

The 38-year-old also blessed fans with a scenic visual to Evil Genius opener "Off the Boat." Big Guwop heads a naval fleet at sea, while he's joined by a seductive crew on deck for the celebratory clip. "Same day, my bricks came off the boat, boat, boat, boat/ I think I'm Pablo on the low/ But free El Chapo he the goat, goat, goat, goat," the 1017 Records frontman rhymes.
