Gucci Mane also previously released his first album of the year, ICE DADDY, executive produced by Gucci Mane’s son, Ice Davis, with features from Lil Baby, Lil Uzi Vert, Pooh Shiesty, E-40, 2 Chainz, and more. Highlights include “Shit Crazy (feat. Big 30)”, and “Like 34 & 8 (feat. Pooh Shiesty).” ICE DADDY is available now via all DSPs and streaming services HERE.
ICE DADDY followed the surprise release of his first-ever greatest hits collection: TRAP GOD CLASSICS: I AM MY ONLY COMPETITION. TRAP GOD CLASSICS: I AM MY ONLY COMPETITION compiles 28 of Gucci Mane’s biggest tracks and worldwide fan favorites, including such smashes as the 4x RIAA platinum certified “I Get The Bag (Feat. Migos),” the 3x platinum “Both (Feat. Drake),” and the 3x RIAA platinum certified blockbuster, “Wake Up In The Sky,” alongside Bruno Mars and Kodak Black.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential rappers of the past decade, Gucci Mane has more Top 10 albums on Billboard’s “Top Rap Albums” chart than any other hip-hop artist in history. His recent releases, compilation mixtapes SO ICY GANG, VOL. 1 and GUCCI MANE PRESENTS: SO ICY SUMMER highlighted by “Both Sides (Feat. Lil Baby)” and “Still Remember (Feat. Pooh Shiesty)”, follow last winter’s release of EAST ATLANTA SANTA 3, the final installment of his EAST ATLANTA SANTA series featuring tracks like “She Miss Me (Feat. Rich The Kid)” and “Tony (Feat. Quavo).” 2019 also saw the release of WOPTOBER II, Gucci’s 15th studio album and monumental 101st project overall. The LP made a top 10 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its October release – Gucci’s seventh top 10 debut thus far – fueled by a string of singles/videos including “Richer Than Errybody (Feat. YoungBoy Never Broke Again & DaBaby)” and “Big Booty (Feat. Megan Thee Stallion).” WOPTOBER II in turn followed the June release of the smash mixtape, DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR, highlighted by the summer anthems, “Love Thru The Computer (Feat. Justin Bieber),” “Backwards (Feat. Meek Mill),” and “Proud Of You.” The prolific icon’s many other career highlights include such classic albums as 2018’s EVIL GENIUS, 2017’s EL GATO: THE HUMAN GLACIER, and that same year’s RIAA gold certified MR. DAVIS, the latter highlighted by the 4x platinum hit single, “I Get The Bag (Feat. Migos),” joined by a massively popular companion video now boasting 500 million views at Gucci Mane’s official YouTube channel alone. Gucci Mane also released the follow-up to his New York Times bestselling book, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane; The Gucci Mane Guide to Greatness is out now.
Along with new releases from Gucci Mane himself, the seasoned A&R is taking his eye for the next big thing to his own record label, 1017 Global Music, in partnership with Atlantic Records. 1017 Global Music launched with the signing of fellow Atlanta rapper Foogiano, who was soon followed by further hand-chosen additions of artists Pooh Shiesty, Enchanting, Big Scarr, BigWalkDog, Hotboy Wes, and BiC Fizzle. Compilation mixtape GUCCI MANE PRESENTS: SO ICY SUMMER introduced the fresh crew with collaborations, solo tracks, and features from some of 1017 Global Music’s signees. After just a few months, The New 1017 crew has already seen major success with Pooh Shiesty and Foogiano featured on Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart as the 3rd and 5th fastest rising artists of the month of July 2020, respectively, and Big Scarr as #1 in the month of April 2021.
