Gucci Mane Changes Name To Guwop… Then Changes It Back

Gucci Mane took to Twitter this morning to officially change his name before having second thoughts. The 33-year-old Atlanta rep insisted that he’s retiring his moniker and would be referred to as ‘Guwop.’ Upon backlash from his fans on the social networking site, he changed it back to Gucci Mane moments later. The name actually spurs from a childhood nickname his Grandmother used to call his Dad. Gucci, who also dons the moniker Trap God, additionally announced a July 2 release date for his upcoming projects Trap House 3 and Juug House. Gucci has been on the road promoting his latest mixtape Trap God 2 and is set to appear in the movie Spring Breakers later this month. –Christopher Harris
