Jeezy & Gucci Mane Ended 20-Year Beef On Tense Verzuz, Performs “So Icy” Together

In a symbolic move on Thursday night (November 19, 2020), the two rappers who have been beefing for almost two decades performed the song that seems to be the starting point of their long and arduous enmity.

The season two premiere of Verzuz saw Jeezy and Gucci Mane facing off at Atlanta’s Magic City with millions tuning in from around the world to see the legendary rappers face off. The pair though was on edge and unlike most other Verzuz battles, tonight it was clear Jeezy appeared to be the one who wanted to make peace but Gucci came for war.

As the pair ran off diss track after diss track, both cutting eachother off and talking over each other- a knife could cut the tension as they both threw petty insults after each other’s performance. After Gucci performed his diss track “Truth,” Jeezy relayed the real reason that he asked for T.I to be removed and replacing him in his place.

“I tell you what though—when I called you and extended this invite my n***a, I did it as a real man,” Jeezy said. “It’s been 20 motherf***in’ years.” Gucci corrected him that their feud had been going for 15 years. “OK, well however many, you’re still talkin’ the same shit.”

He went on to say that as veterans in the rap industry, many of the younger generation was looking up to them, a responsibility that was greater than Jeezy or Gucci.

“When I said I wanted to do this shit for the culture, that’s what I wanted to do, n—a, I wanted to show you that the world care about what the fuck we got goin’ on because we are the culture. You feel me? Me and you. Where we came from. What we been through, n—a. Us. Me and you. All these kids out here doing what the fuck they do because they saw what went on with us, dog. So this shit ain’t about me, this shit ain’t about you.”

Whewwww this moment tho ??#Verzuz#JeezyvsGucciMane

Jeezy proceeded to name several rappers who have been killed recently namely King Von in the last week and beloved Nipsey Hussel and Pop Smoke- all killed in shootouts not disconnected to the rap industry.

It seems that Jeezy’s wisdom softened Gucci as both rappers announced their plans to end their long-standing feud with a joint performance of “So Icy,” by Gucci and featuring Jeezy-that was produced by Zaytoven and released in 2005.

Gucci then thanked Jeezy for extending the olive branch – “I respect you for extending the olive branch, I accept that, no disrespect, it’s all love,” and then announced they were going to a club- the compound together to celebrate.

This is another historic Verzuz, with the event hitting two (2) million viewers on @verzuztv Instagram live.

LEGENDARY MOMENT.

T.I. Agrees With Fivio Foreign That Rappers Have The Most Dangerous Jobs

Fivio Foreign says rappers have the most dangerous jobs and T.I. agrees.

Gun violence is an epidemic in America, and unfortunately, we have seen its tragic effects weighing heavily on the hip hop community in recent weeks. Just this month alone, rapper King Von lost his life during a shootout in Atlanta, only to be followed by the shooting death of Mo3 a few days later. Then, at a memorial for Mo3, shots were fired, and Boosie Badazz was reportedly injured while paying his respects to his friend and collaborator. Boosie has since spoken out to let his fans know he is doing okay after what has been reported as a leg wound, similar to the wound inflicted on Benny The Butcher during a recent altercation at a Walmart.

All this violence has prompted several rappers to speak out, including a comment from T.I. that many fans felt was disrespectful.

After the death of King Von in Tip’s hometown, the Atlanta rapper took to social media to ask that people keep their beefs in their own city rather than bringing the drama to ATL. Many felt that the request was ill-timed, including 50 Cent, who responded to the comment by warning T.I. that his words could have serious repercussions.

Now, New York artists Fivio Foreign has tweeted about all this madness, saying, “Rappers are da most targeted people on planet earth..Target by police, by otha Rappers, by Media, By civilians & everybody else dat feel like we shouldnt have all da things we have!” Apparently co-signing this declaration, T.I. shared the post on Instagram, captioning it with the emojis for “No cap.”

Somewhat prophetically, Boosie also shared this opinion in a recent interview, saying, “We got the [most] dangerous job as rappers. Nobody has a more dangerous job”. The intersection of racism, violence, and celebrity is something that has long been examined within hip hop, and certainly has real consequences for those who make it in the rap game.

King Von Earns First Major Billboard Chart Success With “Welcome To O’Block” Album

King Von’s saw major chart success after his untimely death.

Far too many artists have left this world before they are able to witness the full impact of their music, and now King Von has joined this tragic club. Earning his first Top 5 album on the Billboard 200 with Welcome To O’Block, Von posthumously sold around 44k album-equivalent units in the album’s second week, according to Billboard. The project originally debuted at No. 13 on the chart but experienced a large jump in numbers after Von’s death.

Additionally, Vons’ past releases are also finding their way to the charts in the wake of his murder, including LeVon James, which hit No. 39 this week, and Grandson, Vol. 1, which re-entered the Billboard 200 at No. 52.

King Von lost his life along with two other men in an altercation outside an Atlanta nightclub on November 6th.

The incident reportedly involved Von’s crew and rapper Quando Rondo’s affiliates and was caught on surveillance cameras as the fight escalated to a shoot-out. 22-year-old Timothy Leeks was quickly arrested and charged with murder while seeking treatment for his own injuries following the shooting. Police have since stated that Quando Rondo, who was not present at the time, is not being charged in connection with the murders.

Many fellow hip hop artists have come forward to offer their condolences for King Von’s loved ones since the news of his death made rounds online, including Lil Durk, who was Von’s close friend and collaborator.

Durk disabled his Instagram account shortly after seemingly finding out about Von’s shooting while on IG Live. Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’ shouted out the late Chicago rapper as well before their performance. “Long live King Von,” 21 said on stage. “The world lost a legend.”

Waka Flocka Flame Deactivates Instagram After Coming For T.I. With Street Life PSA

Waka Flocka Flames went lights out on Instagram after seemingly getting called out for attacking T.I.

Following some scathing words for T.I. following his post calling for rappers to handle their beef on their own turf and not in Atlanta, it seems Waka Flocka Flame has deleted his Instagram account. That’s at least up to yesterday, November 10. Waka jumped into an online spat with T.I. following his post, which reads, “Handle YOUR beefs in YOUR city.” Many associated T.I.’s post with the recent death of King Von following a shootout outside of an Atlanta Club on November 6.

Before deleting his account, Waka Flocka Flame basically accused T.I. of being a hypocrite. The rapper also considers Atlanta his home.

“Aye look, never talk down on people when you once was the person that you talking down on,” he said. “I don’t give a f#$k what the scenario is. Ever. And I’m talking about guys that come from the streets, not ones that say they did. Bruh, I don’t care how far I get in life,” he continued.

He followed it up with, “I would never look down on anybody in the streets or anything they ever do in the streets because I understand the laws and lifestyle that come with it and when you understand s$#t like that, a lot of things you not supposed to talk about. You not. Just sayin’. N**gas know what they signed up for.”

He’s not the only rapper to send a warning to T.I. as 50 cent also posted: “A @troubleman31 you gotta chill, you bugging for saying anything. They got casualties this is real s#$t, i don’t know what you was thinking but re think it now. They are hurting, they love that boy he was a way out. I bet you don’t even realize they will kill you for what you just said. what hood you from again? come on now it’s quiet time.”

The Shade Room caught what the rapper had to say before he deleted his account.

T.I. has since defended his comments as he said they were misunderstood and not intended to be about King von’s shooting.

“My last post had nothing to do with King Von. Y’all grossly mistaken, I have no motive or intention to do harm or malice to cats I’m cool wit. My family’s heart goes out to them & I’ve expressed this to people in his life that matter most in this situation. That’s all I’m concerned with.”

Quando Rondo Praises King Von’s Suspected Shooter, Says “F*** Queen Von”

Quando Rondo is defiant as controversies grows over his possible involvement in King Von’s death

Things are getting uglier by the minute following the death of Chicago rapper King Von, and one crew is clearly claiming the hit and running all the way to the finish line. The tragic/violent incident took place outside of the Monaco Hookah Lounge nightclub in Atlanta around 3 in the morning on November 06.

It is reported that things got pretty intense between King Von’s crew and that of Quando Rando. The presence of law enforcement officials wasn’t enough to stop the gunfire that erupted, leaving two people dead, including the upcoming/talented Chicago rapper.

The man police have nabbed for pulling the trigger is Timothy Leeks, a member of Rondo’s crew. Rondo is now publicly defending his associate on social media, promising his “Grim Reaper” will make a triumphant return.

The “Shooters & Movers” rapper recently shared an image of Leeks to his Instagram Story, which he captioned “Free The Grim Reaper.” King Von’s name was also transformed into Queen Von for another post in which Rondo showcased a screenshot of a clause he’s using as evidence that his friend acted in self-defense.

The deceased Chicagoan rapper has been shown much love and respect from the likes of Lebron James, among others in the rap game, especially those from the much revered O Block section of Chicago.
However, Rondo doesn’t seem to approve of the love for his rival and proceeded to remind everyone that Von knew what he was also getting into.

“Y’all tryna take up for somebody is from the streets & definitely knew what came with this sh*t .. so please just stfu,” Rondo typed about “Queen Von.”

There is something askew about all that has happened in the past couple of days that hints at uglier things to come in the future. One can only hope things do not escalate any further, and no more lives are lost.

King Von’s Manager Refutes Asian Doll’s Claims On Rapper’s Last Words, Asian Responded

King Von’s manager is refuting Asian Doll’s claims about his last word and she is pushing back.

Over the weekend, fans, friends, and loved ones of rapper King Von heard the terrible news of his passing after a shootout that occurred outside an Atlanta nightclub. Since the incident, surveillance footage of the violent event has been circulating the internet along with rumors about what exactly occurred.

Asian Doll, who has been romantically connected with Von, took to social media to mourn Von’s death and post pictures of the two of them together during happier times. Now it seems she has also contributed to some confusion surrounding the last moments of Von’s life when she took to social media to share his alleged last words.

“Von last words was ‘y’all let them n****s get up on me….stop crying y’all let them get me,’” Asian Doll claimed in her post.

She went on to criticize the people in Von’s inner circle, insinuating that they left him unprotected. King Von’s manager, Jameson Francois, was present at the time of the shooting and was even shot himself. He has now chimed in on social media, seemingly in response to Doll’s accusations, saying, “Let one more person from the outside that’s close to Von keep on with all this goofy sh*t I promise I’m a expose all that goofy sh*t, cause I was there n got shot behind this y’all stop blaming people y’all don’t even know what happen or who was involved.” Francois ended his post saying, “That goes for x girlfriend family or who ever.”

Although Francois has also claimed that Asian Doll’s only proof of what went down is through her conversations with King Von in the afterlife via a spiritual adviser, Doll has now responded to the CEO by pointing to the surveillance footage as all the proof anyone should need. “We saw it. Everybody saw it,” she said. “The whole world said something about y’all. Not just me.” Whatever happened, let’s hope Von’s family gets the space and respect they deserve right now during this difficult time.

T.I. Tells Rappers Don’t Bring Their Beefs To Atlanta Amid King Von’s Murder

T.I. sounds off on King Von’s murder, telling rappers from other cities to settle their beefs in their home towns.

The violent death of King Von three days ago on November 9, has left many stunned, and the heavy hitters in the rap game have been calling for more peaceful ways to handle disputes. One of the OGs out of Atlanta, T.I., has called on Atlanta, where King Von was shot, to find a way to maintain peace in the area. He also called on rappers to handle their beef in their respective communities. He expressed the sentiments on Instagram in a post which he captioned, “Handle YOUR beefs in YOUR city. Thx in advance. – King.”

Chicago rapper King Von was shot and killed outside of an Atlanta hookah bar on Friday, November 6. T.I’s caption was placed alongside an all-text post that read: “Atlanta is a beautiful city filled with black excellence. We uplift each other & win together. Stop coming here to kill each other. That s&*t is played out. Management.”

According to new reports from Investigators attached to the case, a shootout occurred outside of the Monaco Hookah Lounge in the early morning hours of November 6 after two large groups of people got into an altercation. The information which was provided to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution also stated that this was the second shooting at the hookah bar in a span of 24 hours.

The day before the shooting, November 5, two people were wounded during another shooting incident. According to investigators, there’s no evidence that this shooting had anything to do with King Von’s shooting.

Atlanta’s police Deputy Chief Timothy Peek stated that bullets were flying in multiple directions across the crime scene. He said the entire ordeal was “pretty chaotic.” The two off-duty police officers who reportedly intervened were also injured during the melee.

“The officers did shoot, but we want to ensure we look at the evidence and be able to prove who did what,” Leek said. “That’s why we are dependent on the GBI,” he said.

A lot of fans agreed with T.I., but many others felt that he should have advised young black rappers to just stop killing each other, no matter where they are.

Here are a few of the reactions:

“Nah that shouldn’t be ur caption King it should be more like handle YA’LL business like grown men talk about YA’LL shyt wat ever differences they mite be but STOP killing one another that ain’t it.. HIGHER MANAGEMENT ?????.”

“So you rather we kill each other somewhere else or we can help stop killing each other at all.”

“NawL KinG TelL TheM To StoP ThE Bs BeeF In AlL CitieS #CulturE.”
