There has been a lot of talk about whether or not Atlanta rapper Young Thug is signed to Cash Money or still in contract with Gucci Mane’s 1017 Bricksquad. Now Thug has finally come out to address rumors about him still being under contract with Gucci.
According to Young Thug, he is not signed with Gucci’s 1017 Bricksquad.
“One of the things Thug spoke on is his current label status. “Rich Gang,” Thug said, adding that while he is grateful for the help Gucci Mane has given him to launch his career, he is no longer signed to Brick Squad. This contradicts a previous report by Billboard magazine that Thug was currently signed to Atlantic Records under the Brick Squad imprint.” (Complex)

“The head-scratching saga of Young Thug and his apparent “free agency” continues today, as Billboard reports the Atlanta rapper is still signed to 1017 Brick Squad, an imprint of Asylum/Atlantic Records. A representative of Atlantic recently contacted the magazine regarding their listing of Thug’s single “Stoner” on the Hot 100 chart, which at the time had no label provided in its description. According to Billboard, the label is currently pushing the single to radio and requested that Young Thug’s “Stoner” be properly credited.” (Complex)
