Several months after dropping his Goodfellas-inspired album Paulie Cicero, Berner is gearing up to release another record that pays homage to one of America’s most well-known mobsters, but his new project deals with a real-life crime boss rather than a fictional character.
Berner has officially announced that his next album, titled Gotti, will arrive on December 3, and it will be loaded with a plethora of exciting guest appearances artists such as Rick Ross, Jadakiss, Nas, Rod Wave, Kevin Cossom, Conway the Machine, Benny The Butcher, Mozzy, Ty Dolla $ign, and Wiz Khalifa, among others. Gotti will reportedly also feature approved, never-before-heard audio from John Gotti’s trial, meaning that the legendary Gambino crime family boss will serve as a contributor on Berner’s album as well.
Today, Berner dropped off “Draped Up” to hold fans off until the album drops in December, and the booming track also comes with a spirited hook and verse from Future. The hard-hitting cut features a savage version of the Atlanta rapper that sounds hungrier than ever, and combined with Berner’s flawless execution, “Draped Up” is definitely a great first glimpse of what fans can expect on Gotti.
