Gucci Mane Signs High School Rapper Bic Fizzle To New 1017
The new signee is a high school quarterback in Arkansas.
If anyone OG can take credit for properly scouting a solid roster of talent to take over in a new generation, it's Gucci Mane.
The rapper has long been a champion for finding new talent and putting them in position via his 1017 platform and he can rightfully claim that he doesn't miss often. Now with a current roster that boasts Pooh Shiesty, Foogiano, and Big Scarr among others, Gucci has made a move to add high-schooler Bic Fizzle to the mix, officially initiating the Arkansas-based 18-year-old with his Johnny Dang-created 1017 chain.
“I just sign the hardest yo
“I just sign the hardest young nigga in Arkansas,” Gucci penned. “He only 18 in 12th grade and play quarterback at his high school welcome @bicfizzle and follow him he next up #New1017.”
Bic Fizzle is only the latest in a string of new signees for the imprint. Just last month, Gucci headed to Texas to sign Waco's HotBoy Wes after inking a deal with Mississippi rapper BigWalkDog in May. Quite obviously, the New 1017's common theme is young voices bred in the Bible Belt, bringing new emphasis to southern hip-hop's emerging class.
The strategy is clear, too, as Gucci plucks rappers he deems to be the hottest in their respective states, plotting a concerted takeover. Naturally, time will tell what's to come of the New 1017.
