Gucci Mane is closing out the year with a bang, dropping off a brand new album that has a runtime of almost four hours.
Titled So Icy Boyz: The Finale, the mammoth new project is a 1017 compilation produced by Zaytoven that features an astounding 80 tracks.
The LP features guest appearances from Lil Baby, Jeremih, Trey Songz, 2 Chainz, Offset, Quavo, and OJ Da Juiceman. Other contributions come from 1017’s roster of artists including KATO2x, Li Rye, Mac Critter, Sett, and TLE Cinco.
In a single-sentence post shared to Twitter on Tuesday (December 6), Gucci announced the impending release of the album. “Wop and Zaytoven Friday!,” he wrote.
Wop and Zaytoven Friday!

Gucci Mane has been dipping more into his music mogul bag as of late. He recently offered to sign former Cash Money Records rapper B.G. to 1017 for $1 Million upon his release from prison.
Believing that B.G. had already been released, Gucci congratulated the incarcerated New Orleans rapper and shared what he was willing to offer him in a now-deleted tweet.
“My 1017 family help me welcome home the living legend @BGHollyHood !” he wrote next to a photo of B.G. behind bars. “Glad u home bruh! Got so much love and respect for u as a man and artist! Get at me, I got a milli for u! Wanna sign u to 1017!!!!! #1017Mafia [money bag emojis].”
A native of Alabama, Gucci celebrated the signing of TLE Cinco by giving him an iced-out diamond chain in front of his grandfather’s home.
“I just signed the hardest youngin in Alabama welcome @truckload_cinco to the 1017 family,” Gucci wrote in the caption. “This signing was personal since he from my hometown Bessemer Alabama I had to stop by my granddaddy house the original 1017 for inspiration! #1017Mafia.”
TLE Cinco’s signing has gone extremely better than Baby Racks, who was dropped from the label a day after signing his contract. After shading the city of Houston, Texas, where Migos rapper TakeOff was tragically shot and killed, Baby Racks’ had his deal rescinded by Gucci.
“I’m definitely not fw houston after that DONT BOOK ME CAUSE BABY RACKS AINT COMING,” Racks tweeted following TakeOff’s death.
Gucci wasn’t feeling Baby Rack’s commentary and announced that he dropped the up-and-coming rapper from his imprint. “Congratulations to @Babyracks1017 first artist to get signed and dropped in a day that dude is not signed to 1017,” Gucci wrote in a tweet that is now been deleted.
