Ralo Says Jeezy Never Helped Any Artists
Update (March 7, 5:29 p.m. EST):
YG responded to Ralo's claim that Jeezy's never helped an artist, saying on Twitter, "LIES!!!! Put some respek on Snowman name."
Fans will remember Jeezy signing YG to his CTE World imprint in 2013, around the same time YG's breakout song "My Nigga" was taking off.
Ralo isn't above squashing old beefs, but it doesn't look like he's willing to back down from his inflammatory comments directed at Jeezy. He made that much clear in a recent interview where he apologized to Lil Yachty shortly before he once again called out the Trap or Die 3 rapper.
In the clip that lasts just a little under four minutes, Ralo explains how he felt he misjudged Yachty when he claimed the Lil Boat rapper was lying about not knowing four or five songs from the Notorious B.I.G. and 2pac. "I felt like I did some fucked up shit," he says in the video. "I wanted to straighten my face with that situation, so I felt like I did that."
After realizing that he'd been to quick to judge his fellow ATLien, Ralo made amends with Yachty and even had him rap on his Famerican Gangster 2 standout, "Young Nigga." As for Jeezy, well, Ralo pulls no punches for the rapper he described as a "fuck nigga" a little while back.
Comparing Jeezy's artist outreach and mentorship to Gucci Mane's, Ralo says Jeezy hasn't done enough. "You can't name one artist that Jeezy helped," he explains. "You can name a million artists that Gucci Mane has helped. You can go on Jeezy's page right now and he just started shouting people out. And he delete pictures."
Ralo goes on to say that despite allegations that Birdman has cheated his signees out of serious money, the Cash Money boss is still more of a positive force in the lives of young rappers than Jeezy has proven to be. Ouch.
Ralo signed to Gucci Mane's 1017 Eskimo Records last month, so it's easy to see why he's so high on the Atlanta veteran, but we hope he can also get on the same page with Jeezy at some point in the near future. We're pretty sure they could make at least a few classic bangers.
