Atlantic Records just blessed newlywed Gucci Mane with a $10 million extension. That independent talk he was doing back in September must have had Atlantic a little shook, so they coughed up that bread to make him stay.
When he was talking about going independent, he tweeted, "2018 I'm going 100 percent independent and dropping a mixtape every other day #MrDavisTheAlbum." Damn.
Gucci isn’t showing any signs of slowing up with the music either. Following ths release of his Mr. Davis album, he announced the title of his 12th studio album, El Gato the Human Glacier, tweeting, "I'm naming my next album #El Gato the #HumanGlacier I wanna make 10 mo million for my honeymoon #1017 #MrDavisTheAlbum”
