1017 Brick Squad Records is the brainchild of Gucci Mane. This label was instrumental in steering Waka Flocka to Hip Hop stardom.
Fans may wonder what is the significance of the label’s numerical code 1017. Gucci gave reasoning behind this via an Instagram post.
“1017 Started in Bessemer Alabama rip Walter Davis Sr my grandpa and bigups my favorite uncle Goat Walter Davis Jr. #piccollage,” the “Chasen Paper” wrote.
Gucci even mentioned its origins in song “Decapitated.”
“1017 my granddaddy house,” he raps.
Gucci Mane is currently incarcerated following a violent episode with law enforcement. Gucci took to Twitter following the incident to reveal his battle with Lean addiction.
“I’ve been drinking lean for 10plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit
“I’m addicted to lean & that shit ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse,” he wrote.
Lean, often called “Sizzurp” or “Purple Drank” has its origins in the South after Houston, TX producer DJ Screw popularized the beverage, a concoction made of promethazene-codein cough syrup, Sprite and Jolly Rancher candy.
Lean, when induced, provides its user a sedated feeling.
Gucci says he plans to enter rehab.
