Gucci Mane Signs Hoodrich Pablo Juan and Lil Wop to 1017 Eskimos
Earlier this year, Gucci Mane announced he'd signed Atlanta rapper Ralo to his 1017 Eskimos label, distributed by Todd Moscowitz's Alamo Records via Interscope. Now, he's welcomed two more new artists aboard—Hoodrich Pablo Juan and Lil Wop.
Gucci made the announcement on Instagram today, posting pictures of both artists and welcoming them as the newest members of his label. A rep for the label confirmed the signing to XXL.
Both rappers rep Atlanta (Pablo is from there but Wop moved there from Chicago) and both have been making their own waves in recent times. Pablo got hot with his Designer Drugz mixtape series and just recently dropped his Hood Wolf mixtape with producer Danny Wolf. (Lil Uzi Vert even hopped on a remix to the intro.)
Lil Wop, who's close friends with Ohio rapper Trippie Redd, just dropped his most recent tape, Wopavelli 2, in July, featuring appearances from Lotto Savage and ManMan Savage and production from MexikoDro, Digital Nas and more.
We talked to Hoodrich Pablo Juan earlier this year about his rise in the rap game, his goals in hip-hop and who he listened to growing up.
