Gucci Mane recently released a new single featuring Lil Baby titled “Both Sides” last month on May 29. The rapper, who has been signed to Atlantic Records since 2007, has had issues previously with the label. Back in 2013, Gucci Mane went on Twitter to air his beef with Atlantic Records and sent insults toward the label and executives. The label dropped the rapper and he later apologized for sending out his insidious tweets and he also claimed he was on codeine at that time. He then re-signed with Atlantic Records back in 2016.
