Chief Keef has reportedly filled Waka Flocka Flame’s spot in 1017 Brick Squad. Gucci Mane, while currently paroled from an aggravated assualt trial, welcomed the Glory Boyz Entertainment/Interscope Records artist Chief Keef to the fold on Twitter today, as reported by RapRadar.com. In the tweet, Gucci also included a logo of 1017 Glo Gang, which is a hybrid of both artists’ imprints.

Brick Squad, which is both a group and a record label, includes OJ Da Juiceman, Young Scooter and Wooh Da Kid. Besides Gucci, the label’s biggest star was Atlantic/Warner Bros. Records artist Waka Flocka Flame. In early March, Waka, who owns Brick Squad Monopoly was outed by 1017 Brick Squad, allegedly following a verbal dispute between he and Gucci Mane.
Yesterday, Gucci Mane revealed that he will reveal Trap House III later this month, on May 21—over six weeks earlier than planned.
Last year, Chicago, Illinois-based Chief Keef signed with Interscope before releasing his studio debut, Finally Rich. The effort debuted in the Top 30 of the charts, selling approximately 50,000 units.
