Young Jeezy ends long-standing feud with Gucci Mane

5 Dec

Both emerging in 2005, Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane represented the new wave of Atlanta hip hop. Such rappers as Ludacris and T.I. had risen to become icons, while these guys were poised to become the next stars. A lot like Ludacris and T.I., Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane simply did not get along.

On Gucci Mane’s debut single, “Icy,” he featured Young Jeezy. Wanting more exposure for himself, Jeezy quickly agreed to join Gucci Mane on the track. However, after the release of the single, Jeezy was not properly paid for his appearance on the track. Because of this, he began dissing Gucci Mane.

Later in the year, a member of Young Jeezy’s camp was found dead after an attempt to rob someone out of Gucci Mane’s camp. Because of this, the feud continued and only became deeper. By 2007, it was clear that Young Jeezy was the bigger star. His album received better reviews and higher sales.

However, in 2009, Gucci Mane emerged from the shadows, being featured on numerous songs. He was even able to nab an appearance on the remix of Mariah Carey’s “Obsessed.” Out of nowhere, Gucci Mane is on top of the Southern hip hop game and Young Jeezy is having trouble securing a release date.

Also, over time, Young Jeezy has matured and he sees this back-and-forth between Gucci Mane as unnecessary. Recently, DJ Drama interviewed both Jeezy and Gucci Mane. During the interview, he ended his own feud with Young Jeezy. Then, Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy buried their longtime feud because they are both from the same city. Atlanta has been great to all three rappers.

In the future, there is a possibility of Young Jeezy working again with Gucci Mane and DJ Drama.
