Gucci teams with his 1017 signee Ralo on this highlight from “Ralo LaFlare.”
Ralo’s new mixtape Ralo LaFlare is a tribute to Gucci Mane, the Atlanta legend who signed the rapper to his new imprint 1017 Eskimo earlier this year. On top of sporting Gucci’s signature ice cream tattoo on the album cover, Ralo teams with Guwop on a few tracks throughout the project, including the Honorable C-Note-produced track “I’m Sorry.” The hook uses the proven Gucci formula, where one phrase is repeated and flipped in increasingly catchy ways. On the first verse, Ralo is a worthy protege, using his screechy voice to great effect as he delivers personality-filled quotables. Gucci’s verse is less animated but the wordplay is just as colorful, making the two a powerful team. Listen to the full tape here.Ralo released his Famerican Gangster mixtape in February.
