Album: Writing On The Wall
Label: So Icey Ent.
Gorgeous is Gucci's ultimate stunting track, a Zaytoven collaboration that finds the producer in his most oddball watchmaker mode. As Zay plucks around on somber keyboard tones, Gucci transforms the word "gorgeous" into a repetitive mantra, a self-aware exploration of the ridiculousness of the many baubles that populate his world. This is Gucci at his most absurd, his most exaggerated, his most eccentric: "I keep on hearing voices, telling me to ball/So I keep on buying Porsches, my watch like a portrait!" And then, taking a moment away from the flossing: "Flow so perfect, twelve bars so pretty."
