The I Think I Love Her rapper has not tweeted since deleting his messages but he has retweeted multiple accounts praising his tweets.
Gucci Mane has been signed to Atlantic Records since 2007 but in 2013, the 40-year-old rapper was dropped for a period of time after he tweeted insults towards the label and its representatives.
The Lemonade rapper later apologized for his tweets and claimed he was on codeine at the time. He rejoined Atlantic Records in 2016.
The label has not responded to Gucci Mane’s comments as of this writing.
