Freddie Gibbs discusses possibility of clearing the air with Jeezy
After years of tension among the rappers, Gibbs revealed whether he’s open to ending their feud.
Freddie Gibbs’ relationship with Jeezy has been a bit tense in recent years, but there’s a possibility the two can make amends. During an interview with Vulture, the Alfredo emcee opened up about where the two went wrong and whether he’s open to ending their longtime feud.
“Maybe. Maybe. I don’t see it as a big deal,” Gibbs said of potentially clearing the air with the Snowman. “Ain’t nobody dying. Nobody get shot. Ain’t nobody get hurt, so it ain’t nothing like that.”
Gibbs worked alongside Jeezy when he was signed to his CTE World record label, but his decision to leave resulted in their current beef, which is addressed in the song “Real” — “one of the rudest diss tracks of our time,” according to the “Scottie Beam” lyricist.
“I was more hurt than anything,” he said of his sentiments at the time. “That’s what it feel like when one of your favorite rappers gets at you like that. I think that he see where I’m at now, and then he looks back at that shit, and he regrets it. I don’t say I regret nothing, but it’s better ways I could have handled things with him, maybe talked it out and communicated better. Maybe it could have worked out.”
Amid the rollout for Jeezy’s Verzuz battle against Gucci Mane, the “Put On” rapper vented his frustrations with Gibbs on his “Therapy For My Soul” single. Though the Indiana native’s response was to suggest the Atlanta star “come harder,” he insists their issues are not insoluble.
“I don’t have beef with him like other people may. I think it was just two guys who didn’t communicate correctly. He had a vision, and I had my vision, and we just couldn’t come to a common agreement,” Gibbs explained. “I don’t hate the man or anything of that nature, not at all. At one point, I looked up to him, and I still respect everything that he did musically. I still listen to his music. So like I said, man, maybe one day, who knows?”
