Gucci Mane wants to make Lil Pump the newest member of the Brick Squad. In a short but mania-inducing Instagram comment over the weekend, Guwop offered Pump a home on his 1017 label. Previous 1017 signees include Young Thug, Chief Keef, and Young Scooter.
Pump first shared a non-selfie photo of himself, captioning it "Look at my neck shynee." In a subsequent comment amid fans' label speculation, Pump revealed his intentions of signing Pump to Pump. In a startling comment dropped in the middle of fans' label discussions, the totally real and definitely not spam account @rolex.giveaways said "Anybody Can Obtain the latest Rolex Watch For Nothing & Were Delivering Globaly! Rush! The Giveaway event Ends In next to no time!" Wow. Prior to that wild claim, however, Gucci Mane dropped in to make a more reasonable offer.
Last week, sources told Billboard Pump's Warner Bros. Records contract had been "voided" due to the fact the was underage when he inked the deal. Attorney John Branca reportedly hit the Warner Bros. team with a letter claiming the deal had been nullified due to a "certification issue." Pump signed the deal when he was 16.
On the wave of Billboard Hot 100 hit "Gucci Gang," which was recently parodied on Saturday Night Live, Pump’s alleged status as a free agent has likely kicked off a full-fledged bidding war. If Gucci Mane manages to reach an agreement with Pump about joining the 1017 family, that'll mark one hell of an industry coup for El Gato the Human Glacier.
