Gucci Mane XXL

Superstar rapper Gucci Mane’s momentum can’t be held back. Following an incredibly successful 2009, which saw Gucci appear on four Top 20 singles, be named to MTV’s Hottest MC list and release over 150 songs in addition to his smash album The State Vs. Radric Davis, Gucci will continue to take over the music scene with the launch of his new label 1017 Brick Squad Records and a new team of industry heavyweights behind him.

On the heels of the release of his latest street album The Burrprint 2HD, 1017 Brick Squad Records, Inc., is prepping new releases from Gucci, Wacka Flocka Flame and Brick Squad, a super group consisting of Gucci Mane, Wacka Flocka and OJ Da Juiceman. Gucci will serve as President & CEO of the label in addition to being the marquee artist.

To help ensure that Gucci’s success continues, he has restructured his team from top to bottom, signing an exclusive management deal with First Avenue Management, Inc., and bringing on board powerhouse agency CAA, which represents artists such as Usher, Justin Bieber and Anthony Hamilton, to handle all booking and appearance scheduling.

Gucci has parted ways and is no longer affiliated with his former management company Mizay Entertainment and booking agency Hitt Afta Hitt Enterprises (also known as HAH). Gucci is also no longer affiliated with or an officer of his former record label So Icey Entertainment.

First Nicki and now Gucci Mane fires Waka Flocka’s mother as a manager.
