Gucci Mane replaces T.I. Towards Jeezy within the subsequent VERZUZ battle
In late October, VERZUZ announced that Jeezy and T.I. would spearhead the return of the program on November 19th. Starting tonight (November 14th) there is a new line-up: Gucci Mane will score his goals against Jeezys instead of T.I. It's Friday at 8 p.m. Eastern, see more details below.
In an interview with The Breakfast Club last week, Jeezy said he had previously asked Gucci Mane to join him on VERZUZ but that the rapper "respectfully refused" through Swizz Beatz. Previously, Gucci Mane tweeted on October 29th, "Stop asking me about a @verzuzonline fight unless they have a million dollars they're dreading wop."
Jeezy and Gucci Mane had a long-running feud that culminated in 2005 when Gucci Mane was charged with the murder of rapper Pookie Loc, a Jeezy employee, during a home invasion. Gucci Mane was acquitted on self-defense grounds in early 2006. This summer, Jeezy took part in T.I.'s ExpediTIously podcast. and showed an interest in reducing the tension between him and Gucci Mane with the encouragement of T.I. dismantle.
