During the summer of 2005, Atlanta experienced another boost in the rap game, when such artists as Young Jeezy, Jody Breeze, and Gucci Mane emerged as the “future.” Young Jeezy landed separate deals with Bad Boy Records and Def Jam. Quickly, Young Jeezy would become the biggest mainstream star out of the three.
Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane teamed up for the “Icey” single, taken from his street album, Trap House. The song was a success, but soon the two would be at odds. Ironically, the success of the single caused friction between the two. In 2009, Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane reportedly ended their feud, only for things to recently re-start.
Rick Ross and Young Jeezy, also former collaborators, have recently been at odds. Their heated battle came to a head at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards. Gucci Mane commented on their fight, siding with Rick Ross, who he works with. During his “The Breakfast Club” interview, Gucci Mane also bragged about attending Young Jeezy’s party, uninvited.
Young Jeezy was recently in Los Angeles and he talked to Power 106 about Gucci Mane. Starting the interview off, Young Jeezy called Gucci Mane retarted and cited his ice cream cone tattoo. Hearing the interview and the claims about the party, Young Jeezy said the party was T.I.’s but they turned it into a joint event, which Gucci Mane crashed. Apparently hearing Young Jeezy’s interview, Gucci Mane has now taken it to the music, releasing “Truth” and later a music video for it.
