Gucci Mane is spotlighting The New 1017
Gucci Mane entered a partnership with Atlantic Records, forming The New 1017 to sign upcoming rappers. Some of the rappers signed to 1017 include Pooh Shiesty, Big Scarr, Foogiano, Roboy and So Icy Girlz, a duo consisting of K Shiday and Enchanting.
Back in June, Gucci Mane suggested that his relationship with Atlantic Records was hostile, calling the label ‘polite racists’. About a month later, Guwop tweeted an apology as he formed The New 1017. “I’m not going independent but so respect those who go that route I apologize for my rude harsh language lately I’m a do better #1017/Atlantic.”
Gucci released his project Gucci Mane Presents: So Icy Summer in July. The tape served as an introduction to the new 1017 signees. They were featured throughout the project.
The Trap legend recently announced in a tweet that the So Icy Gang mixtape will drop on this Friday. “We dropping our mixtape this Friday,” he wrote.
It’s always refreshing to listen to a project full of new sounds. The only way hiphop has managed to stay relevant for over four decades is by the breeding of new talents in every other generation. Gucci Mane knows better on how to keep the game running, by giving young stars opportunities to shine. Are you looking forward to So Icy Gang mixtape?
