On Sunday, Gucci Mane revealed during Rap Radar Live that he regretted some of the comments he made during his 2020 Verzuz battle with Jeezy.
During the Verzuz, Gucci man decided to play “The Truth,” a diss track aimed at one of Jeezy’s dead associates, Henry “Pookie Loc” Lee Clark III.
“Put that n***a ass in the dirt. Smoking on Pookie Loc tonight. Send some more, and I’m a send ’em back the same way … In a box,” he said.
Gucci claimed that he never intended to bring that kind of negative energy to the battle.
“I didn’t know when I got on the stage that was gonna happen. [That] I was gonna say that,” he explained. “I ain’t like, ‘I’m bringing negative energy.’ It just really came out … I mean what I say, I say what I mean. So my thing was, if I was bad enough to say it in the studio, I’m bad enough to say it in your face.”
“I’ll tell you what. See, when I even called you and extended this invite, my n***a, I did it as a real man,” he began. “It’s been 20 motherfucking years—” he said before Gucci interjected with “15!”
“… Let me say my piece … I extended my hand because I’m a real man,” Jeezy continued. “The shit we came from in the street, dawg, you see that we been through it … And when I said I wanted to do this shit for the culture, that’s what I wanted to do. I brought you here to show you the world care about what the fuck we got going on ’cause we are the culture. You feel me? Me and you, where we came from, what we been through, n***a, us.
Gucci said he knew the moment was genuine “because after I did what I did, and he came back and said what he said, I felt what he was saying.”
