Gucci Mane is once again teasing his departure from Atlantic Records. The influential trap rapper wondered aloud about leaving the label Twitter on Thursday (June 25).
“Should I renew contract with @Atlantic records or go independent big press conference July 3rd who should do interviews???” he asked.

Earlier this month, Gucci indicated he would leave Atlantic on July 3. In a since-deleted tweet, he also called the label “polite racist.”
“Leaving #AtlanticRecords July 3rd these crackers polite racist #SoIcySummer,” he wrote.
July 3 is the release date of Gucci’s new album So Icy Summer. Although his latest tweet makes it seem like he might stay with Atlantic, a Twitter post the day prior suggested he’s embarking on a new venture.
“So Icy Summer name of my new album dropping July 3rd announcing my new situation,” he declared on Wednesday (June 24).
Gucci’s last project, East Atlanta Santa 3, dropped in December. His most recent single, “Still Remember” featuring Pooh Shiesty, was released Atlantic on June 19.
