Diplo and Gucci Mane announce joint project on Twitter (and then Diplo confused everyone)
Rap’s most prolific incarcerated artist and music’s busiest producer are teaming up—most likely.
“NEW EDM ALBUM WITH @diplo ON THE WAY !!!!!” Gucci Mane announced via Twitter on Saturday. Diplo quickly responded, laughing off the EDM label: “hahaha it ain’t EDM but we working !!! #guwap.” The internet rejoiced and all seemed well, until the Mad Decent label head tweeted out another message about the potential project today:
It seems far-fetched that Justin Bieber (“Beeber”) is executive producing anything these two seasoned vets are touching, and surely Selena Gomez is tired of the media malestrom that occurs each time she and Bieber are linked. (Oh, and that’s completely glazing over the mention of Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant — though those rumors have been swirling since Diplo posted a photo with the rocker three weeks ago.) But, maybe?
A rep from Diplo’s camp has not yet returned our request for comment.
