Gucci Mane and Marilyn Manson, May not be a pair that you’d guess would be good friends but the two recording artist just did an interview together CR Fashion Book. The interview has plenty of interesting hot takes and revelations from Guwop and maybe one of the most interesting ones is about how dead-set he is on ignoring the “what ifs” of government–“If Hillary won, if Jeb Bush won, if Ben Carson won, I got the same plan: get me some money, keep putting out my music, keep just trying to be a better person than what I was”–and a few descriptions of his upcoming memoir.
The interviews greatest surprise was finding out Gucci’s love for rock music and how the genre has become one of his biggest influences:
MM: Would you say that you want to approach doing a rap show more like a rock-and-roll show?
GM: I’ve been looking at Flaming Lips concerts and, I’m not saying I want to do it just like they did it, but I want people to feel like that when they come to my show. I just want it to be like a big party. I want people to sweat. I don’t want people to come trying to look all pretty. No, I want you to leave the concert wet as hell, like you’ve been working out for damn near an hour and a half.
MM: You want to have that chaos.
GM: If I could mix anybody, I would want to mix Jimi Hendrix, the Flaming Lips, and Liberace. I want to look like Liberace, just big diamonds, shining. But I want the production to be like the Lips. I want the crowd to feel that sweat, like Hendrix. That’s how I want it.
