Gucci Mane Announces Name Change To Guwop, Quickly Changes Mind

Gucci Mane had a change of heart shortly after changing his name.

Gucci Mane has announced a name change to Guwop earlier today, but quickly changed his mind.

The Atlanta, Georgia rapper took to Twitter earlier this morning to make the announcement, writing that he will officially be known as Guwop come July 2nd.

"July 2nd I'm officially changing my rap name to Guwop and retiring the great GucciMane Thanks Fans, for 8 years as Gucci now it's Wop turn," he wrote.

But shortly after changing his name, Gucci decided not to switch his moniker and will remain known as Gucci Mane.

Gooch would have been the latest in a line of emcees to publicly change their names. Snoop Dogg recently made headlines for changing his moniker to Snoop Lion, while Mos Def recently became Yasiin Bey and N.O.R.E. became P.A.P.I.

Gucci most recently released his new mixtape Trap God 2 and Free Bricks 2 with Young Scooter, and will star alongside James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens in Spring Breakers.
