October 17th brought trap music fans together to celebrate Gucci Mane's career on this year's 1017 day.Gucci Mane, The Spot With rappers and producers along the likes of Metro Boomin, 808 Mafia, Sonny Digital, Yung Gleesh, Ilovemakonnen, and many more all paying homage by dropping music or excessively posting #freegucci, this 10/17 day was quite a jubilant affair.

In 2007, Gucci Mane and rapper OJ Da Juiceman founded the record label 1017 Brick Squad. Trap God, Gucci Mane, has had the streets of Atlanta locked down for over a decade and brought trap music to the mainstream of the hip hop industry. With Gucci currently behind bars and still popping like he never left the streets, celebrating Guwop's legacy never felt more necessary.

Gucci has been serving his prison sentence for over a year and is expected to serve yet another. He is known for his unending work ethic, which has allowed him to stockpile tons on solid material ready to release from the joint. He has managed to keep a steady stream of releases with multiple mix tapes and albums. The Purple Album, The Green Album, The White Album, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Dessert, Trapology, King Gucci, Trap House 5, Views from Zone 6, and more have all been released from the slammer and all riddled with hits.

In addition to his music, he's been able to premier and promote his debut film, The Spot. The film stars Gucci and fellow Atlanta rapper Rocko, and is due out in November. The film features Keyshia Kaior, OJ Da Juiceman, Shawty Shawty, Kelly Walker, and Young Scooter. Here's a look at the trailer:

This 10/17, Gucci Mane gifted us with a new track entitled "Ball With You." The banger is produced by Honorable C-note. Check it out here:

Whether you're into Trap House one or you're a Hard to Kill type, come into an Amoeba, pick up a copy of your favorite Gucci album, and hit the streets hollering, "Free Gucci."
