By on July 7, 2021

The New 1017 Records is thriving with the success of artists such as Pooh Shiesty and Foogiano, but Gucci Mane is still looking to add more talent to the roster. Over July 4 weekend, Guwop took to Instagram to announce that Hotboy Wes is the latest rapper to sign with the label.

Gucci Mane welcomed the Waco, Texas artist with an embrace in the studio and gifting him with an iced-out 1017 chain. In the video, an excited Hotboy Wes referenced lyrics from Gucci’s “Hood Affairs Freestyle” from 2009: “I was trapping like a fool, me and FF Fool/Didn’t go to school/I was trapping like a bitch, I sold a lot of bricks.”

“Follow my new artist @_hotboywes2 the hardest young n-gga outta Texas 1017 we still spinning money #SoIcyBoyz,” Gucci Mane wrote in the caption.

His wife Keyshia Ka’oir Davis added in the comments, “BEST A&R in the GAME. His life ain’t gon be the same no mo. HE A STAR.”https://www.instagram.com/p/CQ1yfQ0jAf2/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=13&wp=500&rd=https%3A%2F%2Fhiphopdx.com&rp=%2Fnews%2Fid.63045%2Ftitle.gucci-mane-welcomes-texas-rapper-hotboy-wes-to-new-1017-with-icy-chain#%7B%22ci%22%3A0%2C%22os%22%3A2524.600000023842%2C%22ls%22%3A1907.1000000238419%2C%22le%22%3A1919.3999999761581%7D
