It’s been two months since the last Verzuz battle, which took place back in September between Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle. It made sense that Swizz and Timbaland would go out their way to get a huge battle to start season 2 off. Originally we were supposed to get Jeezy vs T.I., but for some reason it was cancelled and we were given a Jeezy vs Gucci Mane Verzuz battle.
For the culture, the battle went down at Magic City Strip Club in Atlanta!
Jeezy and Gucci Mane have had a longtime beef, dating back to when the artists first came on the scene in the early 2000s. They have had a number of altercations between their crews, so its a bit impressive that Verzuz was able to get them to agree to be in the same room today. It leaves the door open for a 50 Cent vs Ja Rule battle, which people have been asking for from the beginning.
Young Jeezy came into the industry on a mainstream level as a member of Boyz N Da Hood, a rap quartet that was signed to Bad Boy Records through a collaboration with Block Entertainment. After releasing one album with the crew Jeezy found himself in a label bidding war eventually signing with Def Jam Records. It was under that label that he released his highly anticipated debut Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101. To date Jeezy has released 9 albums, with his 10th solo album, The Recession 2, set to be released on Friday November 20th. He’s also released several mixtapes and a collaboration album with his crew U.S.D.A. along with the Boyz N Da Hood album.
Gucci Mane came into the industry as an independent artist back in 2005, releasing his debut album, Trap House. To date he has released 16 solo albums with another one scheduled to be released this year. In 2019 alone he released 3 albums. Under his 1017 Brick Squad Record label he has had success with his own artists Waka Flocka Flame and OJ The Juiceman among others. Gucci has also released collaboration albums with the aforementioned Waka Flocka, and others with V-Nasty and Metro Boomin.
Both artists are well respected for what they have done in Hip-Hop. So the Jeezy vs Gucci Mane Verzuz battle was met with much excitement.
