It is no secret that the feud between Georgia’s rap artists Young Jezzy and Gucci Mane has been ongoing since 2005! The beef occurred shortly after the collaboration between the rappers on Gucci Manes hit single “Icy”.
Global Grind sources explained that the beef unfortunately escalated with “Jezzy putting a bounty on Gucci’s chain, which lead to a shooting that involved Gucci himself.”
Back in 2009 DJ Drama arranged a truce between the feuding artists in order to end the long-running beef, in which they (surprisingly) agreed!!
Lets Fast-forward to 2012 … where it appears that the tension between the two still lingers!! Gucci Mane made it clear on Power 105 The Breakfast Club [when asked about the Jezzy and Ross BET Hip Hop Awards altercation] “Ross is a friend of mine, of course Jezzy is not. I don’t care about nothing that happened to him…”
Charlemagne then asked Gucci “Do you ever think that you and Jezzy could be friends?” and Gucci replied “NEVER” and that he had NO respect for Jezzy.
When Jezzy appeared on L.A radio show Big Boy’s Neighborhood, his response to Gucci’s statements was “Everybody know that boy retarded, nobody take him seriously… he got an ice cream cone on his face. That being said, I’m not going back. I’m going forward…”
With “that being said” it sounds as though Jezzy is not taking any real heed to what Gucci Mane is talking about… he explains that his main worries are to continue making hits and getting his [MONEY] “Ima Boss” he says…
BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTT Apparently …
Gucci did not like Jezzy’s nonchalant response because he then immediately hit the studio and recorded “Truth” (check out below) and in his lyrics he states, “For the record, this is not a diss record, Just TRUTH”.
Do you think that Jezzy and Gucci should just let go of the beef and make amends???
