Gucci Mane appears to be making amends with Atlantic Records. 🤝
Gucci Mane is apologizing to his label Atlantic Records for his “rude harsh language” after airing them out in a mid-June tweet, writing, “these crackers polite racist.” Now, Gucci appears at peace with his label, using the hashtag "#1017/Atlantic."
In that same critical June tweet, Gucci also claimed that he was going to go independent starting July 3rd.
Though he still has “respect” for those who choose the independent way, he confirmed in his apology note that he's not leaving Atlantic any time soon.
But Gucci really went off during his rant against Atlantic, even encouraging his fellow artists to “go on strike,” adding, “f*ck these racist ass labels burn them down too.”
Atlantic has publicly met pushback from Gucci once before. In 2017, he announced plans to become “100 percent independent” the following year, which would allow him to drop a mixtape "every other day."
But he ended up signing a $10 million deal extension instead. Secure the bag!
If Gucci did opt for the independent lifestyle, he would've joined other artists like Tory Lanez and Russ, who recently shared the news that he was back on his own following a stint with Columbia Records.
"Boutta show y’all how to upload an album for $50 and make millions," he commented on a post about his solo status.
With his business affairs in order, the 40-year-old Atlanta artist is celebrating this Friday by dropping off a 24-song project, So Icy Summer, featuring Lil Baby, Future, 21 Savage and Young Thug, as well as new music from a few members of his 1017 team, like Pooh Shiesty and Foogiano.
