(AllHipHop News) Jeezy has been making his rounds to different media outlets to promote his upcoming album Seen It All. During the promo run, the CTE general was asked about his relationship with former protégé Freddie Gibbs. One of those media stops including a sit down with Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning where Jeezy explained how he spent money to finance Gibb’s career.

According to the Snowman, he paid for a Gibbs music video that was never released, airplane flights, and other expenses. Jeezy told Ebro his business dealings with the Gary, Indiana rapper left him $300,000-400,000 in the hole.
The following day, Gibbs went to Hot 97 as well to address Jeezy’s statements. He presented his side of why the deal between the two did not work out. After first stating he respects Jeezy, Gibbs said the two rappers just had different approaches to the industry.
After parting ways with CTE, Gibbs released diss tracks aimed at his former boss. He claimed it was Jeezy’s untruthful accounts about their business relationship shared amongst mutual friends that sparked those songs.
“The reason why I lashed out the way I did with the records and the words that I said is truly because of what was said yesterday,” explained Gibbs. “He made it seem like he saved some little, poor Gary boy to the rap game, but that definitely isn’t the case. Before I got with Young Jeezy, I was on the cover of XXL. Before I got with Young Jeezy, I was on tours. Before I got with him, I was making money. I didn’t take a dollar from Young Jeezy. That 300K/400K thing, that’s a total lie.”
Gibbs also added that he did not receive an advance from Jeezy, and he only shot one video during his time with CTE which was discarded because he did not like the final product. He said that was the only financial loss Jeezy suffered as it relates to his career.
Another point Gibbs had issue with was Jeezy saying they saw each other in a L.A. club and Jeezy requested for Gibbs to come and speak with him, but Gibbs refused.
“That’s totally untrue. Another lie in the Jeezy movie. He got an album coming out. I expect him to do these type of things,” said Gibbs. “He just seen me the day before yesterday.”
