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
Last month (June), Gucci Mane announced on Twitter that he was leaving Atlantic Records this summer. The 40-year-old artist has been with the record label since 2016. A year into his deal, Gucci Mane thanked Atlantic Records and announced his $10 million dollar extension with the label. He stated: Thank You @Atlantic Records for the 10 million dollar extension #ELGATOTheHumanGlacier I appreciate It sincerely
