If Santa Claus has December, Gucci Mane has October, er,Woptober.
After teasing the release earlier this month, Gucci Mane now has a solid release date for Woptober, his second new album since May.
The follow-up to his prison comeback album Everybody Looking arrives on Gucci’s unofficial national holiday, October 17 a.k.a. 10/17 via Atlantic Records. At 14 tracks, Woptober features appearances from Travis Scott, Rick Ross and Young Dolph. The latter rapper appears on the newly released single "Bling Blaww Burr."
Meanwhile, as if announcing Woptober wasn't enough, Gucci also had more exciting news to share this week as he Snapchatted himself cutting off his ankle monitor to reveal that he's officially completed his house arrest.
Gucci was sentenced to 39 months in prison after pleading guilty for firearm possession in 2014, and has been on house arrest since his early release this past May. He will still be spending time on probation, as per TMZ.
Now that house arrest is over, it may be time for that long-awaited 20-city tour he once promised:
