Gucci Mane Says He Won’t Do A Verzuz Battle Unless He’s Paid A Million Dollars
In March, Verzuz, one of the largest platforms for artists to engage in friendly battles online was created by super producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland as a result a COVID-19 causing everyone to quarantine.
Artists such as Snoop Dogg vs. DMX, Babyface vs. Teddy Riley, Jill Scott vs. Erykah Badu, and Brandy vs. Monica have participated, leaving fans of R&B and hip hop in a musical, feel-good frenzy. But Gucci Mane, one of trap music’s pioneers, isn’t trying to participate unless a million dollars check comes with it, and the rapper says to stop asking.
He took to Twitter to post his feelings about it.
Stop asking me about doing a @verzuzonline battle unless they got a million dollars they scared of Wop. #GucciemanVsWhoever
Gucci’s unbeatable posture got his fans riled up on Twitter, seemingly agreeing with the Atlanta-based rapper, but it wasn’t long ago when his fans requested a battle against Gucci Mane and fellow south rapper, Jeezy, though the two have been at odds for years.
The beef between Gucci Mane and Jeezy could end soon, though, according to the self-proclaimed “King of the South”, rapper T.I.
In July 2020, on T.I.’s ExpediTIously podcast, he and Jeezy discussed reconciling what they described as the “Trap Music Mount Rushmore” by ending their feud with Gucci Mane which stemmed back to 2005 after feuding over music and money.
Reportedly, Jeezy believed that the single would appear on his debut album Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101. However, Gucci Mane used it for his debut album, Trap House. Jeezy also claimed he was never paid for the hit record.
Hopefully the two will be able to reconcile, but do you believe Gucci Mane should consider doing a Verzuz battle without the million dollar paycheck? Share what you think about it below.
