Scheduled for release on Dec. 22, El Gato … comes just two months after Gucci's 11th studio album, Mr. Davis. The release caps off a banner year for Guwop, during which he released an acclaimed mixtape with Metro Boomin (DropTopWop), released his autobiography and hinted at more literary efforts to come, met his favorite author in person, got married in a star-studded celebrity-filled event that helped launch a reality show, launched a new clothing line, and embarked on the first-ever tour of his lengthy career.
#ElGato is going to be my best album

Following hints that the rapper was considering taking the impendent route and opening up the floodgates on a huge arsenal of unreleased music, Gucci instead inked a $10 million contract extension with Atlantic Records this past September. He subsequently tweeted his thanks to the label, adding ,"I'm naming my next album #El Gato the #HumanGlacier I wanna make 10 mo million for my honeymoon #1017."
