It’s safe to say that Jeezy and Gucci Mane’s VERZUZ battle was a bit tense.
During the Verzuz battle, moments became tense when Gucci played his 2012 song, ‘Truth’ which is supposed to be a diss track to Jeezy. In the song, Gucci claims that he killed Jeezy’s friend Pookey Loc in self-defense after an alleged attempted robbery.
In a recent article released by GQ, Jeezy gave his thoughts on Gucci Mane’s actions and how he was able to maintain his composure. “I didn’t lead with my ego. I’ve done a lot of work on myself to get to where I’m at mentally. I’m very confident in who I am as a man. So I’m never going to be on the defense about something that I know better about.”
He continued, “My goal was to go in there with my integrity and to leave with it. It didn’t matter what anybody said—my integrity comes first. I’m very mentally strong when it comes to things like that because I came from nothing. I had to work very hard to get to where I’m at. And I’m not going to jeopardize that in the moment, just because.”
The two ended the battle with a performance of their 2005 hit “So Icy.”
Jeezy also chopped it up with Ebro in the Morning where he gave his honest thoughts about Gucci Mane and more.
