Hear What Jeezy And Gucci Mane’s Former Manager Coach K Has To Say


Gucci Mane
“When I got with Gucci he already had his deal at Warner Bros. When I came aboard, Warner knew my history of making records. Those first three Jeezy records I A&R’d…Warner knew I was good at making records. I was his manager but I was his A&R too. I helped put the album together. That’s when we put out The State Vs. Radric Davis.

“It’s about intertwining the circles and the subcultures. That’s what I was able to do with Gucci. Gucci did two mixtapes with Diplo that were crazy. We took dubstep and intertwined it with trap—before they called it trap then. That’s what we’re doing with Migos now. The worlds are intertwining. I introduced them to the fashion world, the trap world, the hipster world.”

On the split: ”I haven’t been around him in six months. I may have done things a little bit different, but I just wish him the best.”
