Jeezy and Gucci Mane’s Verzuz took an awkward turn when Guwop decided to play “Truth,” his 2005 diss track aimed at The Snowman. On the track, Gucci raps, “Go dig your partner up, nigga, bet he can’t say shit.” After he played that song, La Flare kept going in by repeating Loc’s, Jeezy’s associate that he shot and killed years ago, name and talking about him being in a coffin.
However, Jeezy wasn’t having it. He quickly checked Gucci by saying, “See when I called you and extended this invite, my nigga, I did it as a real man. It’s been 20 motherfucking years... you still talking the same shit.”
He added: “The shit we came from in the street, we been through it, dawg. Twenty years and when I said I wanted to do this for the culture, that’s what I wanted to do. I brought you here to show you the world care about what the fuck we got going on because we are the culture. Me and you, where we came from, what we been through, nigga, us.
“All these kids out here doing what the fuck they do cuz they saw what went on with us. This shit ain’t ‘bout me, it ain’t ‘bout you. This shit about King Von, this shit about Doe B, this shit about Nipsey Hussle, this shit about motherfucking Pop Smoke, Mo3 and I’m real enough to do that, nigga, because one thing about it, two things fo sho, three things for certain, nigga...” And with perfect timing, the beat for “Get Your Mind Right” dropped.
Earlier this week, Gucci laughed at a meme poking fun of his “Truth” lyrics and Jeezy’s potential reaction on his Instagram. Gucci playing this track was definitely a moment that Trap fans watching the Verzuz tonight was waiting for awkwardly — and we finally got The Snowman’s response. It could’ve ended worse...
