In trailer No. 2 from Young Jeezy’s documentary “A Hustlers Ambition” he addresses a long running beef he had with fellowAtlanta rapper Gucci Mane.
The feud started in 2005 over a dispute regarding the song “Icy,” which appeared on Gucci’s album Trap House. Jeezy alleged that he was never paid for his appearance on the song. The two rappers dropped several diss tracks aimed at each other. The feud peaked when Jeezy released a track titled “Stay Strapped” where he offered a $10,000 bounty for Gucci Mane’s chain.
“I want that muthafuckin’ bullsh*t-a*s icy chain,” Jeezy says on the track “I got a bounty on that sh*t, n*gga, 10 stacks. So if he come to your town. And you just happen to snatch that muthaf*cker off his neck. I’m gonna shoot you the 10-stack, man. So I can cremate that muthaf*cker.”
On May 10, 2005, five men stormed a house where Gucci was at visiting a woman. In the struggle that ensued one of the men, Henry Lee Clark III aka Pookie Loc was shot and killed. Loc was allegedly an associate of Jeezy’s.
Gucci was charged with murder, but the charges were later dropped due to lack of evidence.
DJ Drama helped squash the beef between Gucci and Jeezy in 2010.
In a clip from the Samuel L. Jackson narrated “A Hustlers Ambition,” documentary that will be included in the deluxe edition of Jeezy’s album, Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition, the Snowman recalls the beef.
“I remember just not being able to talk to nobody,” Jeezy says. “I felt like I was in a vulnerable state so I didn’t want people around me. So I only had certain people that came and could communicate with me. I didn’t look at it as rap sh*t. I don’t do rap beef, that’s for rappers my n*gga.”
Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition will be available December 20.
