Atlanta has been hard at work lately, and it looks like we’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of its labor early this month. Gucci Mane has been teasing his audience with two upcoming projects in the past couple months: The Eskimo Boys Vol.1, and Glacier Boyz.
Glacier Boyz will be a collaborative mixtape between Atlanta hip-hop icons Gucci Mane, Lil Yachty, and Migos. Word first spread of the tape back in early January, when Guwop tweeted out “Brrr #GlacierBoyz coming February”. A month after Gucci’s tweet, Lil Yachty announced the tape’s roster on February 4, tweeting “Glacier Boyz Tape Otw.. me, guwop, & migos.

Both February and March have come and gone, and the Glacier Boyz still haven’t released their project. Still, Gucci and company were kind enough to bless their audience with a Glacier Boyz single, titled “Solitaire”, on March 1. Peep the song below.
On Sunday, April 1, Gucci Mane finally revealed a concrete release date for the upcoming Glacier Boyz mixtape via Instagram. A video was posted of what seems to be Gucci, Yachty, Quavo and Takeoff on the set of a music video shoot, possibly for “Solitaire”. The caption of the video read “Ice Ice Baby #GlacierBoyz April 13 🏹”.
Before the release of the Glacier Boyz project, we can expect the release of The Eskimo Boys Vol. 1 on April 6. The Eskimo Boys project will include a roster from select artists from Gucci’s 1017 Eskimo label, consisting of Lil Wop, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Lil Quill, Young Mal and Ralo. Gucci first announced this project back in a February 7 tweet. Since then, two songs have dropped that feature artists from Atlanta Eskimos: Hoodrich Pablo Juan’s “We Don’t Love Em (Remix)” featuring Gucci Mane, and “Yeah Yeah” by 1017 Eskimo. Check out “Yeah Yeah” below.
As these two projects roll out, Gucci is at work on his thirteenth studio album, titled Evil Genius. The album was announced back at the end of 2017, but details about the album are for the most part unknown. Stay tuned for more Gucci Mane updates.
