(AllHipHop News) After dropping the diss record “Was My Dawg” aimed at his onetime partner, Waka spoke with TMZ about his issues with Gucci.

“I’ll just say a little bit about Gucci. My fans deserve for me to elaborate on why I went so hard at a person that ‘started my career,'” said Waka. “To set the record straight, my mother started my career. My mother started Gucci’s career. My mother started Nicki’s [Minaj] career. [OJ Da] Juiceman’s career. French Montana’s career.”

Waka’s mom Deb Antney served as a manager for Gucci, Nicki, and others.

She was also CEO of So Icey/Mizay Entertainment.

Gucci filed a lawsuit against Antney in 2013, claiming she cheated him out of profits and used the money for her own personal gain.

The case was dropped the next year.
