Album: The State vs. Radric Davis
Label: 1017 Brick Squad, Aslyum, Warner Bros.
Gucci and Gotti had an incredible recording chemistry. Beginning with their first major collaboration, "Work Ya Wrist" on Chicken Talk, mid-period bangers like "Mo Money," and as recently as 2012's "It Ain't Funny," the two had a yin-yang complementary style. Gucci had a manic unpredictability, chaotic, and unrefined; Gotti, by contrast, was all muscular control ("It Ain't Funny" works so well for pushing towards an inversion of this dynamic, even if it never quite achieves it). The duo's highest-profile collaboration was the hooky "Bricks," a massive single that became one of Gucci's early signature hits.
