Jeezy Wants to Have a Real Conversation With Gucci Mane
During a sit-down with T.I. on the Grand Hustle Records founder’s Expeditiously podcast this week, Jeezy said he wants to have a real conversation with Gucci to sort out their past issues. While discussing Guwop on the podcast, Tip asked Jeezy what he thinks is necessary for them to squash their long-standing beef.
“I just feel like it gotta be one of the mafia, back room conversations,” Jeezy began. “It gotta really be a convo. What I’ve learned over the years, man, this shit big business. People that went to Yale still do business with people that went to Harvard. So, it’s just one of them real convos. It’s been decades.”
Elsewhere in the conversation, the TM104: The Legend of the Snowman rapper said that he and Gucci have actually chopped it up in the past and came close to resolving things.
“To keep it all the way solid, me and bro done sat down and had a real conversation in a sushi joint,” he continues. “It was close. I can’t lie, it was close, but I think he got locked up or something around the time and the communication just went dark. But, I’ma keep it a buck, it was close. It was real close.”
Jeezy and Gucci’s beef dates all the way back to 2005 when the Georgia native and Guwop did their first track together: “Icy” featuring Boo. Jeezy thought the record was going to appear on his debut album, Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, but Gucci put the collab on his Trap House LP instead. Since that point, there have been numerous diss records, physical altercations and even a shooting that took the life of Corporate Thugz Entertainment rapper Pookie Loc. CTE is a record label founded by Jeezy.
