One of the biggest Verzuz shows included the beef ending Jeezy and Gucci Mane showdown, but not everyone agreed with the finishing of the rivalry.

Jeezy and Gucci Mane in November finally ended decades long beef by agreeing to participate in Verzuz. Corporate Thugz Entertainment co-founder Kinky B who helped establish the CTE imprint with Jeezy in the early 2000s was not fond of the men ending their 20 year beef.

During an interview with the Big Facts Podcast, he explains why Gucci Mane’s reputation took a hit from certain circles with connecting with Gucci Mane.

“That man, in the United States of America, any street n-gga lost all respect for that man that fucking day,” he says in the clip. “He lost all his street credibility that day due to the fact that, I don’t give a fuck, when a n-gga lose their life, man, ain’t no peace. They’ll never be peace. Never, ever.”

There was some tension during the broadcast of the Verzuz showdown. Gucci Mane played the 2012 Jeezy diss track entitled “Round 1”, but Jeezy stopped the show to express his thoughts.

“See when I called you and extended this invite, my n-gga, I did it as a real man,” he said at the time. “It’s been 20 muthafuckin’ years … you still talking the same shit. The shit we came from in the street, we been through it, dawg. Twenty years and when I said I wanted to do this for the culture, that’s what I wanted to do. I brought you here to show you the world care about what the fuck we got going on because we are the culture. Me and you, where we came from, what we been through, n-gga, us.

“All these kids out here doing what the fuck they do cuz they saw what went on with us. This shit ain’t ‘bout me, it ain’t ‘bout you. This shit about King Von, this shit about Doe B, this shit about Nipsey Hussle, this shit about muthafuckin’ Pop Smoke, Mo3 and I’m real enough to do that, n-gga, because one thing about it, two things fo sho, three things for certain, n-gga.”

With that, Gucci accepted Jeezy’s olive branch, saying, “No disrespect. It’s all love.”

Gillie Da Kid spoke with the Breakfast Club recently and gave his thoughts on the two rappers ending their rivalry.
