Welp, Gucci Mane went there! He played “Truth” … his infamous diss track boasting about fatally shooting Jeezy’s friend Pookie Loc, and as they say, s**t got real.
Jeezy immediately stood up, but instead of charging at Gucci or threatening violence, he hit back with a speech about why they were doing this battle. Jeezy said, “I brought you here to show you the world care about what the f**k we got going on, because we are the culture.”
He shouted out King Von, Nipsey Hussle, Pop Smoke, Mo3 and other rappers killed in gun violence … and then dropped his own track, “Get Ya Mind Right.”
Crazy tense moment, but at the end of the battle, Gucci and Jeezy made peace. Can we get an “Amen?” Stacey Abrams made a surprise guest appearance before the Atlanta rappers started their battle, and she put the focus on Georgia’s upcoming election for 2 Senate seats.
Stacey thanked Jeezy for his work in getting folks in his state registered to vote. She did a lot of the heavy lifting too, but game recognizes game.
Georgia’s upcoming January runoff election pits two Democrats against two incumbent Republicans, and it’s a chance for Dems to flip the Senate.
Jeezy and Gucci’s Verzuz battle is drawing over a million viewers, so Stacey had a huge platform to make her voting pitch.
