The rapper didn't specify when the track will be released, but hopefully it'll be soon
Marilyn Manson, as you might imagine, doesn't keep the most conventional of company, but the fact that he is good friends with trap-rap star Gucci Mane just seems that little bit out of the blue that we're still struggling to come to terms with it. What's more, it turns out that the singer and rapper have hooked up on a song together, with the pair expected to bring the most unlikely of collaborations to the fore this summer.
Gucci told The Fader earlier today (May 31) that he and Manson hooked up after the Los Angeles premiere of the new movie Spring Breakers on March 14, with the two artists recording their track in the studio until 6am. The rapper then went on to mention how the pair first met and how they each share an interest in each others work. Gucci said, "We got the dopest record in the world, me and Marilyn. Me and him got one of the craziest records ever made. We made it whatever day Spring Breakers came out in Cali. He came to the sneak premiere, and after we did the red carpet and watched the movie, me and him went to the studio and made us a record. That’s the day that we met and began being friends."
For those of you who still might be doubting the unlikely friendship, earlier this month the rapper Instagrammed a photo of the rocker wearing a 'Free Gucci' tank top, and also went on to discuss how he introduced the singer to songwriter Kevin McCall and has been keeping the singer in mind for another potential link-up whilst he records his new album.
The Bizarre reationship between the two might stem back even further still, when Gucci rapped; "Sitting in my mansion/ Listening to Marilyn Manson" on the 2009 track 'Overboard.' Gucci's fellow Brick Squad member Rulet 1017 has also dedicated a verse to Manson before, on this years 'Really Ready' from Gucci's Trap God 2 mixtape. We genuinely can't wait to hear this one.
