History[edit] 2007–13[edit] Gucci Mane
Gucci Mane
opened the record label after signing with Mizay Entertainment in 2007, following the release of his independent album, Trap-A-Thon. On May 4, 2010, Mane announced he had closed So Icey Entertainment and left Mizay Entertainment due to business problems with Debra Antney.[1] Gucci Mane
Gucci Mane
stated that he was starting his own record label and that his employer, Jerry Alvarado, was already signing a distribution deal with Asylum Records. The first artists to sign up to 1017 Brick Squad were OJ Da Juiceman, and Waka Flocka Flame, who signed up whilst they were still signed to Mizay Entertainment. Juiceman's debut album was unofficially released through the Brick Squad record label (officially it was released through Asylum Records and Mizay Entertainment). Brick Squad's first mainstream success occurred in 2009, when Gucci released The State vs. Radric Davis. Brick Squad also signed Waka Flocka Flame, who released his debut album, Flockaveli, through Brick Squad, Mizay Entertainment, and Warner Bros. On September 28, 2010, Mane released his third studio album, The Appeal: Georgia's Most Wanted. On December 16, 2011, member Slim Dunkin was shot and killed at an Atlanta
recording studio preparing to shoot a music video. He was shot while arguing with another person in the building, who has been identified as another Atlanta
rapper, Young Vito.[2][3] On February 25, 2013, Young Vito was acquitted of murdering Slim Dunkin, but he was given a 25-year sentence for aggravated assault and possession of a firearm.[4] 2013–2016[edit] On March 15, 2013, via Twitter, Gucci Mane
Gucci Mane
said that he "dropped" Waka Flocka Flame and he was no longer a member of 1017 Brick Squad.[5] The next day, Gucci's management claimed his Twitter
account was hacked and he had not sent the tweet about Waka Flocka.[6] However Waka would claim this to be false and later diss Gucci Mane

at a Dipset reunion concert in New York City. On March 27, 2013, Waka told MTV
that it would be impossible for him to be dropped from 1017 Brick Squad

as he owns stake in the company. He also confirmed that there was indeed a feud going on between the rappers and "they would never make music or do business together again."[7] On September 7, 2013, various members of 1017 Brick Squad
1017 Brick Squad
and Brick Squad Mafia traded shots back and forth on Twitter, including Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Frenchie, Wooh da Kid, and OJ da Juiceman. Gucci would go on to say "fuck brick squad" and accuse his former manager, Waka Flocka's mom Debra Antney, of stealing money from OJ da Juiceman and Frenchie. Frenchie
also accused Gucci Mane

artist Slim Dunkin, which Gucci denied. Frenchie
would release a diss record towards Gucci the following day.[8] 2016–present[edit] Gucci Mane
