Lemonade

Album: The State vs. Radric Davis (2009)
Charted: 53
  • This is the third single from American rapper Gucci Mane's second album, The State vs. Radric Davis. The song interpolates "Keep It Warm" from comedic duo Flo & Eddie's 1975 album, Moving Targets.
  • Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan, otherwise known as Flo & Eddie, were founding members of the 1960s Pop/Rock band The Turtles. When the band broke up in 1970, Volman and Kaylan joined Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention as "Phlorescent Leech & Eddie." They later shortened their moniker to Flo & Eddie and recorded seven solo albums with their individual quirky and at times comedic content.
  • 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."
