Gucci Mane Mocks Jeezy Over Deceased Friend W/ ‘Go Dig Your Partner Up’ Meme
Gucci Mane taunted Jeezy, reminding him that he killed one of his former friends, in self-defense. He posted on Instagram with the caption,
“Go dig up your old partner ni**a I bet he can’t he say sh*t.”
It all began in mid-2005 after Jeezy and Gucci Mane recorded their first collaboration “Icy,” and Jeezy thought the song would end up on Gucci’s debut album Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, but it ended up on Gucci’s first independent album, Trap House.
Although the song peaked at No. 46 on Billboard’s R&B/hip-hop chart, Jeezy was still upset about the snub and said that he was never paid for his appearance on the track.
Jeezy then dropped “Stay Strapped” which seemingly took shots at Gucci, adding that he had a bounty on him. He rapped,
“I got a bounty on that sh*t, ni**a. 10 stacks. So if he come to your town, and you just happen to snatch that motherfu**er off his neck, I’m gonna shoot you the 10-stack, man. So I can cremate that motherfu**er.”
Shortly after Jeezy dropped “Stay Strapped,” Gucci Mane was visiting a friend at a house in Decatur, Georgia, when four men broke in and assaulted. Gucci Mane grabbed his gun and shot and killed one of the men, Pookie Loc, who was an associate of Jeezy’s. After the shooting Pookie Loc’s body was found buried by a local middle school.
Days later Gucci Mane later turned himself in and was charged with murder, but the rapper claimed self-defense, and the case was dropped in January 2006 for “insufficient evidence.”
Some alleged Jeezy was connected to the robbery, but he has denied those claims.
During an interview with Charlamagne Tha God, in December of 2019, Gucci Mane had no remorse for the killing of Pookie Loc.
“[Pookie Loc] needed to be in the ground, I put his a** where he supposed to be. He
tried me. If somebody comes he and try to kill you, yeah you know it’s self-defense … you gotta do what you gotta do.”
As previously reported, rapper Gucci Mane took to Twitter last month, saying that he would not be doing a Verzuz with Jeezy unless $1 million dollars was on the table.
Gucci Mane changed his mind about being apart of the rap celebration, and on Saturday (Nov.14), it was announced that rappers Gucci Mane and Jeezy are set to do a Verzuz battle on Thursday, November 19th.
This news came as a surprise since it was previously announced that rapper T.I. and Jeezy would be the ones going head to head on Verzuz that same night.
T.I. posted the new flyer on his Instagram promoting Gucci Mane and Jeezy for a Verzuz battle. He captioned the post,
