It’s a meeting of our best minds on how to recover from a setback. Meek Milland Gucci Mane took a break from living their best possible post-prison lives to record a song together called “Backwards”.
The song was dropped with little notice, with Ebro debuting it on his Beats 1 Radio show on Thursday.

Guwop said that “Backwards” was one of the easiest songs he’s ever done, with Meek connecting over their shared experiences.
“It’s one of the most organic records you can ever make. We made this in a penthouse in Miami…Just in my house, just vibing. So I feel like this, you can’t get more natural than this, man,” he said. “You know what we had in our lives, man, that was special. Like two kings, it’s like salute to salute… I was praying for you, I was praying for you. I was rooting for you. I knew this was going to happen.”
In addition to the new song, Gucci shared some details about his upcoming album. He told Ebro that his new album will be called Delusions of Grandeur and it’s coming in just a few weeks.
Beyond the new song and album, Gucci took the time to dish on a collaboration that seemed to be as nonsensical as the one with Meek made sense. Gucci wanted to make it clear that his Justin Bieber track was an organic offshoot of their real-life friendship.
“That’s my guy. We had been talking and chatting it up, just about life,” he said.”Him being married and just going through a bunch of stuff, and just talking and building on the friendship.”
