London producer/dj Sinden is set to release a free Gucci Mane mixtape this week, commissioned especially by the US rapper, and featuring work from a striclty British cast of beat makers.
‘Free Gucci 2: The Great Burrrtish Edition’ is the follow up to Diplo’s Mad Decent released ‘Free Gucci’ mixtape, made when the Atlanta rapper was incarcerated for probation violation following his arrest for assault in 2005.

A “dream project” for Sinden, the remix project, a re-imagining of his latest album ‘The Appeal’, features work from Wiley, Hudson Mohawke, Mosca, Funkineven, Terror Danjah, Rustie and more, pitting some of the the UK’s cutting edge talent against one of the finest deep-south rappers of his generation.
