Jeezy Speaks On Issues With Freddie Gibbs

(AllHipHop News) At one point Freddie Gibbs was a standout member of Young Jeezy’s CTE World label, but the two rappers parted ways in 2012.

Gibbs has not been shy about addressing his issues with the Atlanta-based rapper through diss tracks, tweets, and interviews. Now Jeezy is speaking out on the matter.

During a discussion with Elliott Wilson, Jeezy explains he had no ill will towards Gibbs, but the financial situation would not allow him to continue to fund the Indiana emcee’s career.

Jeezy said:

I put him on a song with Eminem. I put him on a song with T.I. I put him on numerous mixtapes that I had. I took him on tour. Took him around the world. I spent money on videos that he didn’t use cause he didn’t like them, and it wasn’t his money.

So at the end of the day, my whole thing was to him was ‘I took you to every label in the game. They don’t wanna sign you. I don’t have no reason—I love you. You know what I’m saying? I think your music is dope, but they don’t want to sign you.’ So at the end of the day, when I called him up I was like, ‘Yo, I can’t really spend my money on you. I got family, other shit I gotta take care of. So, I’ll help you all I can, but I can’t fund it anymore.’

Cool. Conversation went well. We got off the conversation it was straight love. I hear diss records. What I’m supposed to do? I’m not replying to that. N**a, we getting money. YG just sold a million f**king singles. At the end of the day, we all tried. It didn’t work. That shit happens in business all the time…

I still ain’t surprised, cause I don’t give a f**k. I’m still getting money. I’m still on top. You’re not gonna knock that. And I’m still having success around me, but when you listen and good things happen – we celebrate like with YG.

    […] Jeezy has it good in this regard because, for years, his sound has anticipated future trends in hip-hop. Going back ten years he was already rapping about the “trap” life, long before the 2012 hip-hop renaissance made trap-rap and trapstyle two of the biggest sounds in music. Jeezy also has a history with producers Shawty Redd, Don Cannon, Drumma Boy and JUSTICE League, now canonized as some of the most important producers in history (some editorializing may exist). Additionally, it was Jeezy who brought Gucci Mane into the limelight by offering a couple choice verses on his debut album Trap House, and Jeezy again who made Freddie Gibbs into a superstar by signing him to CTE, offering him choice mixtape appearances and dropping stacks for Gibbs to shot music videos.
