Watch the full interview below. He said he and Gucci will now have to work on healing their relationship. During Thursday night’s event, Jeezy said his main reason for wanting to rap battle Gucci Mane was because it was needed as an example for the younger generation and the preservation of the culture, which has always been dominated by violence. It ain’t even for show. But that was effort–it’s in front of the world. However, Jeezy says he has grown as a person from that time to now. But this was the moment of the night! We not kids,” Jeezy recalled. I just promised myself that I would never put myself in those positions again. TwitterFacebook The two rappers have been feuding since 2005. “I took the last 10 years to better myself because of a lot of things that happened in my life. Nevertheless, his self-control was admiral and even Charlamagne Tha God admitted in the interview that Jeezy won the Verzuz battle because of how he handled a very contentious situation. “As men, it’s been going on almost two decades. Some rappers have even lost their lives in some of the incidents – the most recent King Von and Nipsey Hussle. The more it goes on, the worse it’s gonna be, we like the forefront of it so anybody who’s behind us, that’s the way to go. “You can’t antagonize me with something that we both understand ’cause I’m not in the same mental space as I was 20 years ago nor can I let you take me there.”
Jeezy says letting Gucci Mane taking back to that place he was two decades ago would’ve been more upsetting than anything else. Jeezy’s post-analysis of Thursday’s historic Verzuz is heavily focused on how he managed to stay calm and focused during the at times tense battle. Gucci Mane himself has accepted the olive branch from Jeezy. We both gotta really be men.”
More than 1.8 million viewers tuned in to see the Southern heavyweights battle it out. “The real sh*t that went on, that’s just something me and him gonna have to figure out later on but for y’all it’s just like I understand it. Time heals all. Jeezy is revealing how he handle what was a very contentious Verzuz with longtime foe Gucci Mane. “I looked at it like we ain’t sixth graders. It’s real life–we both gotta come to grips with that. It was a point when we were cool,” he said. Speaking to hosts on The Breakfast Club on how he handled Gucci Mane’s “disrespectful” comments- making fun of his friend’s death Pookie Loc and even his sense of fashion, Jeezy says his maturity won’t let him be the person he once was.
