Gucci Mane & Young Thug have been affiliated for a long time. Their partnership comes full circle as both cover the Fall 2016 issue of XXL magazine. Thug just released his Jeffery project and Gucci is getting ready to drop Woptober on October 17, so this comes as perfect timing. Read XXL‘s words on the issue below and get ready for it to hit shelves.

For the new issue, the two artists both sat with XXL to talk about their journeys to stardom—including some of the bumps they have hit along the way—their history with each other, thoughts on the current hip-hop landscape and personal focuses for the future. Gucci, who has been somewhat absent from hip-hop for the past three-plus years, due to a federal prison bid, also discusses his life before the jail sentence and what he had to do to change himself and succeed when he got out. Thug, who has found comfort in the world of fashion, also talks about how that fits in his budding career and what it means for himself and hip-hop.
