Gucci Mane‘s ex-artist, Lil Wop, has made a brave decision to come forward and live his truth.
Taking to his Instagram page on Thursday (May 18), the “Lost My Mind” rapper revealed that they’re transitioning from a man to a woman — and it’s a decision he has not not made lightly.
“In The Transition Into Becoming A Full Transgender,” he wrote in the Instagram caption while revealing a newer look than the one his fans had been used to prior to this post.

As of this writing, Lil Wop has not announced a name change, nor a change in his preferred pronouns.
While Lil Wop is not the first rapper to come out as trans, he’s been dropping hints that he’s not a cis-hetero male for quite some time now.
Back in 2022, the Chicago rapper — who was previously signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 Eskimos imprint — revealed he is bisexual. The “Like a Savage” lyricist made the announcement on his Instagram on February 13.
“I’m Bisexual I Like Guys & Girls It’s W.E.,” Wop wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of him in pigtails with his midriff showing.
The rapper’s most recent release was 2021’s featureless mixtape Say Cheese, which was gothic and rock influenced. In a 2017 interview with The Fader, Wop said he considers himself a rockstar more than a rapper.
“I mean, my music is rock,” Wop told the outlet. “You can lose your mind, you gon’ go crazy to it. It’s rock-hard banging, not soft rock & roll but hard rock. I made my own shit, my own style. So what you see going on: it’s Lil Wop.”
While Wop hasn’t done many interviews recently, he has been working on new music. He recently dropped off his latest singles “Glo” and “Woke Up,” both of which he revealed were self-produced. The rapper also revealed the title of his next project Till Your Blocked, and asked his fans on Instagram if they were ready for new music, implying that more was coming.
“Mortal Combat Finish Em. Comment [bat emoji] If Your Ready For New Music,” he wrote alongside a masked Instagram selfie, to which fans eagerly flooded the comments with bat emoji’s.
