Gucci Mane is retiring his rap name of eight years. According to a recent Twitter this morning, Mr. 1017 will officially make the transition to Guwop. We are not sure of why he wanted to change his name, but we are pretty confident in saying his rapping will be the same. Rap names are interchangeable and it sounds like this one will still follow in the same footsteps as "the great Gucci Mane."

Wop’s upcoming mixtape, Trap Back 2, will be releasing soon.

UPDATE: False alarm. Gucci Mane is still Gucci Mane.
