ZMoney’s money just got longer, as the Chicago star took to social media this morning to announce his deal with Gucci Mane’s 1017 Eskimos record label. A perfect fit, if you ask me. Z has been blazing trails on the music side since 2013, and despite a number of personal and professional setbacks, he came stronger than ever in 2017 with the release of his ZTM project with producer ChaseTheMoney.
His bubbling hit “Two 16s” with Valee has been burning up Chicago and had a viral moment, so it’s only right he partners with a great label to add some gas to the fire. There’s no word on if Z has inked with 1017 via Alamo/Interscope, as details are still coming together.
We’ll have an official statement from ZMoney shortly. Congrats are most definitely in order, however. It’s been a long road, and this partnership is well deserved.
Update: We got with ZMoney for an official statement on how his deal with Gucci came out
Well, Gucci called me like two weeks ago at about 8am. I ain’t know who it was, he like “Nigga, this Gucci! 808mafia DY gave me your number.” I was expecting a call from my cable people, they was coming to my crib like around that time, so when I seen the area code I thought it was them.
We talkin he like “You hard as fuck, I wanna sign you. Is u with anybody?” I’m like “naw I’m independent,” and he said “Well, I want you.” After that, he asked for some more music to listen to then I flooded him with tracks released and unreleased. I sent so many til he told me “stop that’s enough!” He listened to them all, then hit me back like “You hard as fuck, I need a 12.” He sent me a song and I did it the same night & sent back to him. Our lawyers started talking then today we made it official.
