Gucci Mane Speaks on Beef With Young Jeezy [Video]

Gucci Mane recent sat down with Miss Info outside of the Zone 6/East Atlanta apartment complex that he grew up in to talk about the cloud of controversy that’s hanging over him and his career [watch below].

During the interview La Flare went into detail about “My Own Worst Enemy,” a song off his upcoming album The State vs. Radric Davis. In the song Gucci touches on some of the things he’s been silent about for a while now- the footage of him hitting a woman, that has made the rounds on youtube, the diss on T.I.’s longtime girlfriend Tiny and his infamous murder charge. Most notably, he opens up about his beef with Young Jeezy and more specifically why he’s been so quiet about it.

“I think one of the most powerful things I said [on] the record [was] ‘let me check my schedule, I’m busy I can meet you three weeks from now’ that was showing why I didn’t respond,” he told Miss Info. “Cuz how can I respond if I’m always gone. What time I’m gone have to pencil in you and me meeting up to have a physical altercation?”

In the song Gucci raps, “I don’t wish no death on homie I just want him to hear me out/Think about the past and all the many things we talked about/Think of all the people that’s influenced by what comes out our mouth.”

Although the message sounds like Gucci is waving a white flag, with apologies to Tiny and comments on how he, T.I. and Jeezy are a lot alike, he makes it clear that the song is not intended to address Jeezy.

“It ain’t for him,” said Gucci, who says he’s not looking for a truce and that it’s not likely that Jeezy would hear the song and get anything good out of it anyway. Instead the message is more for the fans to be inspired than anything else.

He does however include a message for Jeezy in the Miss Info interview: “When I have time and you wanna say something to me or confront me about it, it’s not that I’m looking forward to it or want to do it, it’s just like you will have your opportunity. You don’t got to look for nothing. It’s gone come to you.”

The State vs. Radric Davis will be available in stores December 8. –Brooklyne Gipson

    Reading in between the lines, this isn’t looking too good. I respect Gucci, but it almost feels like someone from opposing sides teams will end up a corpse.

    gucci mane is still scared for his life.

    • jbird

      How’s Gucci scared? He murked dude and got away with it. Period. Cops know Jeezy wants his ass. (Well actually Jeezy wants somebody else to get him cuz Jeezy a b*tch a$$ that don’t wanna do his own dirt!! — Nuf Said) Gucci just being a man and grown up figuring there’s more ish to life than beef. The two just need to let it ride out and call it the past. Better for both to live than one of em to take a dirt nap. Chances are 50/50 for both to live if they keep ish up. So Icey wasn’t even that good of song to fight bout it. Gucci done made better songs since — Helluvalife!!

        being in fear for your life will always make a young nigga grow up. but gucci made his bed.

        this nigga got ya’ll fooled. he’s been run out of the city before. he’s a rat. he betrayed his former business partners.

        why you think he became a blood all of a sudden? just another scared rapper getting extorted for protection.

        you know why gucci is best at making party records? because he was never a real street nigga. you know why he ran to radio to apologize to Tip? because he does dumb shit sometimes and gets scared afterward when he realizes the consequences. you know why he punches girls? cause he’s insecure as a stand up man. you know why he can’t stop getting “stoopid” high and “wasted?” cause he doesn’t want to think about the fear that consumes his life.

        personally, i hope he keeps making party anthems and real street niggas forgive him. but i dunno.

          @ yoprince:

          damn, i hear u mane….i think he’s grown though….everything u said there duz make plenty sense too tho boy….i hear n feel u….n ur last line bout forgivness n sht was a good way to end all dat truth u stated too…Me personally tho, I do believe he was in da street, u can’t deny it after listening to wat he talks bout n sht, he was definately in da street b4 rap, no doubt in my opinion….seem like he was down wit LO n all dem cats b4 music, dey was all in dat street life bs..u can tell when its real n when its phony….either way, really good shit man real talk

      • matty21

        Overall, dey BOTH need to be men n quit wit dis bullsht…gucci i think is admitting n coming forward about being wrong a lot in his past…all da wrong things he did in his past (everything yoprince was talkin bout n sht) is out n i think he is acknowledging that he is growing up n changing….Gucci took da 1st step towards a truce man 4real, now dey jus both need to come 2gether n quit wit da bullshit….life too short 4real…although this situation has created a lot of good music man, dats besides da point, it ain’t worth lives….Jeezy need 2 cool it, we know he da shit, he sent da goons n gucci i think earned respect at least man…..squash it

        • matty21

          *N its much harder for gucci to come out like dat as a man n be smart….it should be easy for jeezy….fuck, jeezy almost had gucci lose his life…u know how hard dat is for gucci to just let go? he took dat step n it should be easy for jeezy…

  • IAMRICH

    People giving Gucci Credit cause he murked somebody. First off gucci got off the murder rap cause it was self defense. Jeezy put out the 10k bounty for the “So Icy” Chain 3 dude from BMF went to make the hit at a stripper house and Gucci popped off first. (its in the police interview when they indicted BMF) It ain’t like Gucci walked up and killed somebody. Plus Gucci told the judge that Jay “Young Jeezy” Jenkins tried to have him killed in court. HOW GANGSTA IS THAT!?!?! Gucci got a lil buzz and i ain’t hating but errbody know when they play Jeezy songs they hit hard and it ain’t just a beat and a hook!
