Gucci Mane Is Ready To Do Another Verzuz: Who Y’all Want Me To Battle Next?
Despite Gucci Mane’s hesitation to be apart of the trap music celebration, he took part, and by the end of the live, the two rappers, called a truce on their 15 year beef.
It looks like Gucci had such a great time, that he wants to do a second Verzuz, and he asked his fans who should he battle next?
“I heard our battle @verzuztv broke numbers it was historic we run the culture who y’all want me to battle next ? ??”
Co- creator of the Verzuz series, Swizz Beatz, shared the viewership numbers from the live, stating that the Season 2 opener had a record breaking, “all-time livestream viewership record.” He added that the celebration brought in 9.1 million viewers from all over the world to watch the “legendary showdown.”
He posted an overall stat sheet on his Instagram.
He captioned the photo,
“WOW. The numbers are officially in, and a huge thanks to all of you who tuned in as we broke our all-time livestream viewership record on Thursday night with the first episode of season two of Verzuz. On a minimum level, 9.1 MILLION people watched this epic, legendary showdown between @jeezy and @laflare1017. (As we saw across the country, there was a new phenomenon of Verzuz viewing parties, so that figure is not including those who gathered in large numbers together.)”
He added that the ratings were respectively higher in numbers than major networks, who have had produced shows air this year.
“This viewership number from last night actually makes Verzuz bigger in ratings than the MTV VMA’s, NBC’s The Voice, the Billboard Awards, the CMA’s, the Latin Grammy’s, Dancing With The Stars or The Masked Singer respectively on any given night for those primetime shows this year. OUR culture has made us the top show in the world for music outside of The Grammy’s. Thank you infinitely! ??”
Gucci Mane and Jeezy seemed to have ended their feud, which started more than a decade ago, during the Verzuz battle. Even though things ended on a positive note, the pair still took shots at each other during the battle. As things heated up on stage Jeezy, born Jay Jenkins, tried to keep the peace and reminded Gucci Mane, born Radric Davis, why they were there. He said,
“I extended my hand because I am a real man. And the sh*t we came from in the streets dog, you see that we been through it dog. 20 years, and when I said I wanted to do this sh*t for the culture that’s what I wanted to do n*gga.”
“All these kids out here doing what the f*ck they do cause they saw what went on with us dog. So this sh*t ain’t about me. It ain’t about you, you feel what I’m saying? This sh*t about King Von. This sh*t about Doe B. This sh*t about Nipsey Hussle. This sh*t about motherf*cking Pop Smoke [and] M3.”

By the end of the showdown, Gucci seemed to be ready to put their feud behind him. After they performed their perspective parts from the song ‘So Icy’ together he let Jeezy know that it’s all love between them. Gucci Mane said,
“Aye man listen – all respect. I appreciate you for throwing out the olive branch. I accept that, no disrespect. It’s all love.
