Just in case you’re wondering what happened between the two Atlanta rappers, here’s a quick breakdown of their long-time beef.
In 2005, tensions between Jeezy and Gucci first began to ignite after the two collaborated on “Icy.” Following the song’s success, Jeezy complained that he was never paid for his hard work. The Snowman later took aim at Gucci on his diss track “Stay Strapped,” where he “put a bounty” on the “Lemonade” rapper’s head.
Gucci heard Jeezy’s message loud and clear and decided to take a few shots of his own on “Round 1.”
In May of that year, the “Boogieman” was charged with the murder of one of Jeezy’s alleged associates, following an altercation that broke out at a friend’s house. Sources say four men broke into the house and began assaulting Gucci. When the men threatened to shoot him, Guwop grabbed his pistol and started shooting.
Gucci Mane was later acquitted, claiming that he acted in self-defense.
Now fast-forward to 2020 and the rappers appear to have put their differences aside for an ultimate VERZUZ showdown! Gucci announced the news via Twitter, but you could tell there was an inkling of petty undertones in his caption.
“Tell buddy Get ready Thursday Nov 19 @verzuztv Trap God vs Snowcone ❄️,” captioned Gucci in a shocking plot twist that immediately went viral
Jeezy eventually responded in an equally petty post that legitimized the once seemingly impossible matchup.
“SAY lil guwop SEE YOU ON THE 19th. DON’T SEND YA CLONE! BIG SNO⛄️ #R2,” he fired back on IG
At this point, we’re still proceeding with caution despite both Timbaland and Swizz confirming the battle that replaces the original ATL heavyweight bout between T.I. and Jeezy scheduled at that time.
“We listened to the people and had to reshuffle the deck on ‘em.
Gucci Mane vs Jeezy 💥
This is not a false alarm 🚨 The Super Bowl of the South.🔥
Some said it would NEVER happen, but it’s finally ON.
This Thursday at 5pm PT/8pm ET on @applemusic in HD. Drinks by @Ciroc” announced Verzuz in a strangely deleted then reposted tweet.
Whether they’ll actually be in the same building, we don’t know, but the thought of two sworn enemies with an ACTIVE beef laughing it up while celebrating each other is far-fetched to say the least.
