Gucci Mane Launches New Label, Signs Ralo To 1017 Eskimo Records [PHOTO]

Atlanta’s rising rap star Ralo has signed a deal with Gucci Mane’s new imprint 1017 Eskimo Records, which earned him a cool $1 million.

On Monday (Feb. 13), Ralo went on his Instagram page to announced the good news. “Aye yawl I just got another million dollars n my account, Could everybody please do me 2 favors… tell @laflare1017 thank him an happy birthday. This the greatest gift on earth,” he wrote.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Ralo, he was the guy who launched the #RaloHomelessChallenge during the holidays where he made it rain at various homeless shelters in Atlanta. Local news capture Ralo throwing hundreds of bills in the air and homeless people scrambling to get the fallen money. Some people have criticized Ralo’s actions as demeaning and have suggested that Ralo give the money to the people by hand instead of throwing it up in the air.

On his IG page, it looks like Ralo is still keeping up with tradition. In one video, he’s tossing money in the air as if it’s confetti with his crew standing by his side.

Nevertheless, Ralo is doing his thing in the rap game. He just released a new song, “I Hope It Don’t Jam” Featuring 21 Savage and Shy Glizzy. He also has a video for “My Brothers,” his collaboration with Future.

Ralo’s signing follows the release of his new project, Famerican Gangster 2, which is available now on
