Gucci Mane has an incredible track record when it comes to cosigning artists and taking them to the next level. Artists like Young Thug, Waka Flocka Flame, and even Chief Keef were all members of 1017 at some point and you'd be hard pressed to find an artist or producer that has come up in the Atlanta scene without working with Gucci Mane in some capacity early on in his career.
Since making his return to the industry and going on arguably the most successful run of his career, Guwop relaunched 1017 Eskimo via Alamo Records with plans to continue his early success of turning rising acts into superstars. Lil Wop is one of the new acts signed to 1017 and it has been a dream come true for the Chicago-born rapper. His rap name is an obvious homage to Gucci, he was born on 10/17, and his music even contains some aspects of early Gucci's sound.
Now, after meeting, recording, and performing with his idol Lil Wop is ready to release his first project under 1017 Eskimo. Wopaveli 3 is set to release this Friday and the 22-year-old rapper has shared the tracklist for the project as well as new single "Wokstar" to accompany the announcement.
