Speaking to XXL
in a 2017 interview, Gucci Mane expressed his frustration that he doesn't get enough recognition for being a lyricist. He explained:
"I feel like I'm one of the coldest, as far as putting songs together cause it was four or five years where I just freestyled. I was so high, I just freestyled all them songs, 'Lemonade,' 'Photoshoot,' 'Wasted
,' I would make these songs all in one night. And I would make 30 tapes a year. I've never seen anyone do that but me."
