“Leaving #AtlanticRecords July 3rd these crackers polite racist #SoIcySummer,” he posted on Twitter earlier on Thursday (June 11), which has now been deleted from the rapper’s feed. (You can find a screenshot of it here.)

Gucci Mane and Atlantic Records have not made any comments since Mane’s tweets.
However, Atlantic Records has been promoting their black artists as well as sharing information on how people can learn more about Black Lives Matter and information on how people can help on their socials.
