CD Review: Gucci Mane 

The Return of Mr. Zone 6 (Warner Bros.)

Here's what we're dealing with: After spending a year in prison on an assault charge, Gucci Mane was arrested on multiple traffic violations. Then he was committed to a psychiatric hospital. Topping it all off, he had a big-ass tattoo of an ice cream cone inked on his face. So don't expect stability or logic to guide the Atlanta rapper's fourth album. In fact, The Return of Mr. Zone 6 is kind of a mess, weighed down by blah guests (from old-school Master P to new-school Waka Flocka Flame), trite rhymes, and Gucci's own inconsistency. His rap style pretty much amounts to grasping a phrase and then repeating it over and over and over again ("24 Hours," "This Is What I Do"). And the phoned-in southern hip-hop beats don't slink, they crawl. — Gallucci
