A Timeline Of Jeezy and Gucci Mane’s Beef

Published

on

In the world of hip hop, it is not unusual to have beef between various rap artists and at even times producers and executives wage war against each other. Most of the times, this beef is simply an exchange of words that mostly happens in the form of diss tracks that at times turn into hits. When worst comes to worst, this beef turns into physical altercations or even worse, can boil over to loss of life.

An example of beef in the hip hop industry is one between Gucci Mane and Jeezy which has gone on for fifteen years. Their beef dates back to the early 2000s exchanging disses through slick diss tracks such as ‘Icy’ and ‘Stay Strapped’. While both men have evolved over the ears in terms of their careers and as entrepreneurs, the discord between them has remained tense with fans of both camps dreaming of the day the two will set aside their differences to work together.
