- The 4x RIAA platinum-certified “I Get The Bag (Feat. Migos)”

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. Along with new releases from Gucci himself, the seasoned A&R is taking his eye for the next big thing to his record label, 1017 Global Music, in partnership with Atlantic Records.
1017 Global Music launched with the signing of fellow Atlanta rapper Foogiano, followed by further hand-chosen additions of artists Pooh Shiesty, Enchanting, Big Scarr, BigWalkDog, Hotboy Wes, and BiC Fizzle.
Last year’s GUCCI MANE PRESENTS: SO ICY SUMMER compilation mixtape 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, Foogiano, and Big Scarr all-dominating Rolling Stone‘s influential “Breakthrough 25” chart as the fastest rising artists in recent months.
