Gucci Mane Drops 1017 Rapper One Day After Signing Him | HipHopDX

Gucci Mane has continued to prove his record executive ruthlessness by dropping an artist from his 1017 label just one day after signing him.

On Tuesday (November 2), Guwop announced on Twitter that buzzing rapper Baby Racks is no longer part of his label. He sarcastically congratulated Baby Racks for being the “first artist signed and dropped in one day.”

“Congratulations to @Babyracks1017 first artist signed and dropped on a day the guy isn’t signed to 1017,” Gucci wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

Baby Racks’ aborted deal appeared to stem from disparaging comments he made about the city of Houston, Texas, where Migos rapper Takeoff was tragically shot and killed earlier this week.

“I’m definitely not fw Houston after that DONT BOOK ME BECAUSE BABY RACKS IS NOT COMING,” Racks tweeted after Takeoff’s death.

Baby Racks appeared to be reeling from the humiliation as he fired back at Gucci Mane with his own sarcastic tweet.

“Congratulations on the baby racks [partying face emoji] appreciate the video appreciate fly me out I appreciate check Atlantic records sent thank you Gucci,” he wrote.

He then apparently mocked Gucci by asking Jeez, Yo Gotti and NBA YoungBoy – have had problems with Burr print rapper in the past – for a record deal.

“I’m a free agent now young boy get me @YoGotti wassup @Jeezy holla t me,” he added before tagging other label heads Rick Ross and quality control Pierre “Tiss” Thomas.

Although he spent a very short time on 1017, Baby Racks was able to secure a collaboration with Gucci Mane. In September, they dropped “Look Ma I Did It” along with an accompanying music video that has over a million views on YouTube.

Gucci’s imprint has had its fair share of roster changes over the years. The label started as 1017 Brick Squad in 2010, with the first artists being OJ Da Juiceman and Waka Flocka Flame.

Beef between Gucci and Waka saw the label go through a rough patch, resulting in the “No Hands” rapper being dropped. Things changed again in 2016 when Gucci rebranded its label 1017 Eskimo in collaboration with Alamo/Empire Distribution.

Four years later, Gucci renamed the label again to 1017 Global Music, LLC and signed a distribution deal with Atlantic. He released a compilation album titled Gucci Mane presents: So Icy Summer in July 2020 where he introduced his new crop of artists including Poop Shiesty and Foogiano.
