Gucci Mane Drops Managers, So Icey; Begins 1017 Brick Squad Records From Jail
Gucci Mane, who is currently serving a one year sentence for violating the conditions of his parole, has done away with and is no longer an officer of his old label So Icey Entertainment.
Rapper Gucci Mane is reportedly dropping his old label So Icey Entertainment as well as all relationships he has had with the label, former management (Mizay Entertainment) and booking agent Hitt Afta Hitt Enterprises.
Gucci Mane, his new imprint ’1017 Brick Squad Records, Inc.’ and all business from now on will be exclusively handled by First Avenue Management, with new business manager David Bolno, Managing Director at Nigro, Karlin, Segal, & Feldstein and top entertainment law firm Davis Shapiro Lewit & Hayes, LLP.
1017 Brick Squad Records will be the new home for Gucci as well as Waka Flocka Flame and OJ Da Juice Mane.
Gucci Mane released a statement from Prison regarding the new move.
“The rest of 2010 is going to be real major,” says Gucci Mane. “I’m taking control of all of my business properties and keeping the focus on my career, my music and my artists. All the pieces to the puzzle are finally in place and once I get home it’s Gucci time.”
Gucci Mane is slated to release the ‘State VS. Rodric Davis: The Appeal’ album on 1017 Brick Squad Records later this year.
