Over one million people tuned in Thursday night to the Verzuz livestream to watch Jeezy and Gucci Mane go head-to-head after beefing for the past fifteen years.
It was a heart-warming moment when Jeezy extended an olive branch to Gucci and he accepted it after dissing him all night.
Many fans thought it was photoshopped when La Flare announced that he replaced T.I. in the battle. Plus, Gucci declined to participate in the celebration claiming they’d have to compensate him $1 million.
But it finally happened and it was cringy! Gucci clearly attended with the point to be as disrespectful as possible. Jeezy thankfully held his composure and played a huge part in the monumental moment.
Hip Hop fans critiqued Gucci for behaving immaturely and accepting the challenge when he’s clearly holding on to the trauma that stemmed from his feud with Snow Man.
But to understand Gucci’s perspective, you’ve got to know that this rap beef started petty and ended deadly.
Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane began their working relationship with the song “Black Tee,” which was a flip to Dem Franchise Boyz’s hit single, “White Tee.” In his autobiography, Gucci compared Jeezy to a “poor man’s Trick Daddy,” and in true Gucci fashion, he opened doors for his fellow ATLien.
