Gucci Mane was the musical guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night (Dec. 4). He performed his new single “I’m Not Goin’” with featured artist Kevin Gates. The track hails from Mane’s upcoming thirteenth studio album Evil Genius, which is slated to drop via Atlantic Records and GUWOP Enterprises this Friday (Dec. 7).
The renowned pair of southern rappers brought all kinds of swagger to the “Kimmel” stage as they alternated verses on the track in which Mane serves up sharp commentary about his level of wealth and fame and calls out haters for disparaging remarks made about him.
He says in the chorus, “They told me stop buying all these fancy cars (But I don’t wanna)/They told me, Please take all your diamonds off (But I’m not gonna).”
Both artists pretty much make it lyrically clear they’re not going to be told what to do and not do. Their “Kimmel” performance follows the release of the dark, edgy video for the track which features ominous music and lots of rap star bling.
“I’m Not Goin’” is one of several Evil Genius tracks featuring guest artists. Other collabs include Bruno Mars and Kodak Black on the album’s dreamy second single “Wake Up In the Sky.” Quavo, Migos and Lil Yachty appear on other tracks. Evil Genius follows Mane’s Billboard 200 Top 40 album El Gato: The Human Glacier, which was released last year.
