The first "Free Gucci" just never gets old, we got our friends from all over the world to remix the track. This time around Sinden is trying to keep the Queen happy by putting all the remix work to his British homies and wow this is as packed as the last.

In Sinden's own words. “Gucci has been on my radar a long time – I’ve always waited with baited breath for the next tape to drop. To have the opportunity to curate a mixtape of his material and A&R the project is a dream gig and I knew that with the talent over here it would yield some really interesting results."
