So Icey/Asylum/Warner Bros. Records are pleased to announce the release of Gucci Mane’s first major release, The State Vs. Radric Davis. The long-awaited album will make its way into stores December 8, 2009.
The State Vs. Radric Davis comes after a slew of independent releases, mixtapes and features over the past few years. It brings together some of the best production work from Polow Da Don, Drumma Boy, Sean Garrett, Mannie Fresh and others. Confirmed features so far include Usher, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy and So Icey Entertainment family OJ Da Juiceman and Waka Flocka.
The news comes on the heels of the rapper being named the #6 Hottest MC currently in the game by MTV staffers and fans. The network justifies the decision in stating “no artist this year has more effectively merged the underground with the mainstream. He’s broken through in ’09 and shined through the clouds of controversy that have continued to dampen his career.”
