Last month, Gucci Mane released an unofficial remix to Rick Ross' "War Ready," which was equal parts intriguing and confusing. Upon its initial release, "War Ready" was packaged as an important moment because the song marked the end of a longstanding feud between Ross and Young Jeezy. By most accounts, Gucci Mane and Rick Ross are currently on good terms, while Gucci and Young Jeezy are still very much not on good terms. So it wasn't clear what Gucci’s intentions were in inserting himself onto the record, though by alluding to his 2005 shooting of a Young Jeezy affiliate in his verse ("Say Gucci got a Murder One/ I killed a man allegedly") it didn’t seem like he was extending any kind of olive branch of his own. So, why then did Gucci Mane want to be on "War Ready"? And considering that he's been incarcerated since September awaiting trial on federal gun charges, just how did he manage to get on "War Ready?" I ventured down the Lemon Brick Road with the hope of finding the answers to these questions, and what I got was a glimpse behind the curtain of the Gucci Mane operation.
