Gucci Mane has thrown his hat into the ring for the 2024 rap wars, setting his sights on none other than Diddy!

On Wednesday (April 24), the “Freaky Gurl” rapper surfaced on YouTube, with a new music video for his latest titled “TakeDat.” On the track, Gucci holds no bars, taking aim at Diddy, 50 Cent, Gillie and Wallo to name a few.

I got a young Miami bitch from the city/ I’m spendin’ money like a trick, no Diddy/ I rock pissy yellow diamonds, no Diddy/ But she can’t be underage, no Diddy (Ugh)” he raps on the first verse, seemingly referencing Puff’s ongoing legal issues.

Gucci also took a jab at Jay-Z’s discontinued Roc Nation Brunch, stating, “Why you ain’t ever seen Wop at The Brunch? / ‘Cause they might spike the punch, man, that shit too risky.”

Also making an appearance in the visual treatment for the track, is Gucci’s leading lady, Keyshia Ka’Oir. In one scene, the power couple reenact Diddy and Misa Hylton’s bathtub moment from the 1994 Notorious B.I.G. “Big Poppa” video.

While the reason for Gucci’s entry into the fray remains unclear, beef records have undoubtedly proven lucrative for others this year, including Kendrick Lamar, Drake, J. Cole, and Chris Brown, among others.

More recently, Breezy and Quavo traded jabs. Last week, much to the astonishment of fans, Chris Brown released “Weakest Link” in which he fired a direct shot at the Migos superstar following a romantic involvement with his ex-girlfriend, Karreuche Tran, and alleged to have been intimate with Saweetie while the duo were still dating.

He raps: “You fucked my ex-ho, that’s cool, I don’t give no fuck, lil nigga/ ‘Cause I fucked yo’ ex when you were still with her, bitch, I’m up, lil nigga.”

Chris Brown’s recent release followed another song directed at Quavo, titled “Freak.”

Quavo responded promptly, firing back with a verbal assault of his own on the track “Tender,” followed by “Over Hoes & Bitches,” featuring his nephew Takeoff on a contentious chorus. However, the latter track seemed to fall flat with fans.
