Gucci Mane will remain Gucci Mane. The Brick Squad rapper took to Twitter to announce that he would be changing his name to Guwop, but quickly decided against it.
“July 2nd I’m officially changing my rap name to Guwop and retiring the great GucciMane,” he told his followers on Monday morning. “Thanks Fans, for 8 years as Gucci now it’s Wop turn.”
His fans weighed in on Twitter, expressing their dislike for the new name, and less than an hour later, he called off his plans.
“I am officially NOT changing my name to Guwop it will officially stay Gucci Mane due to my Fans’ response,” he wrote.
The name change was to coincide with the release of his upcoming mixtape Trap House 3: The Guwop Edition. The project, which he calls his “last trap album,” will hit iTunes on July 2 featuring the 2 Chainz-assisted single “Dirty Cup.”
