Gucci Mane announced Wednesday that Baby Racks was signed to his 1017 Records and subsequently dropped in a matter of one day. “Congratulations to @Babyracks1017 first artist to get signed and dropped in a day,” he wrote. “That dude is not signed to 1017.”
The bizarre turn of events came with no explanation from Gucci Mane. According to XXL, Baby Racks responded to Gucci’s tweet on his now private account. “Congratulations to babyracks appreciate the video appreciate flying me and my team out I appreciate that check Atlantic records sent thank you Gucci,” he wrote, along with a deuces emoji.
Racks also shouted out Yo Gotti, Jeezy, Pierre “P” Thomas, and Rick Ross in the same tweet in an attempt to secure a new deal since he’s a free agent now.
XXL reports Baby Racks posted a series of tweets, which still include “1017” on the handle, where he made some inappropriate remarks about the city of Houston in wake of the death of Takeoff prior to his dismissal from the label. “I’m definitely not fw houston after DONT BOOK ME CAUSE BABY RACKS AINT COMING,” he wrote.
“Y’all mad cause I said I ain’t coming to Houston lmao fuck Houston,” Racks continued.
Baby Racks also tweeted a distasteful reference to the Migos’ song “Versace,” writing, “VERSACE VERSACE WE BROUGHT THAT SHIT BACK AND YOU NIGGAS IS LAME.”
Baby Racks dropped a video for the Gucci Mane-featured song “Look Ma I Did It” last month. Check it out up top.
