(Gucci Mane and friendlies on set at the “Breakin’ Up” shoot today)
On Monday night, Young Jeezy leaked a new record, “24-23,” aimed directly at his longtime Atlanta rival Gucci Mane, and Gucci’s newly popular protege, OJ da Juiceman. Ever since, fans on both sides have been staunchly divided, but we can all agree that with Jeezy, Gucci and OJ all booked to perform on the same bill on Friday in North Carolina, and on Saturday at Atlanta’s biggest hip hop concert event, The Birthday Bash. Tension is on high….but you surely can’t tell by Gucci Mane’s mood.
Today, he was on set with singer Mario and Sean Garrett shooting a video for their collaboration “Breakin’ Up.” And while Mariah Carey was sending out her “Obsessed” remix featuring Gucci (what the wha!), your girl Info caught up with Mr. La Flare for his reaction to old beefs back on the grill…
Interview quotes after the jump…and footage of Jeezy playing “24-23″ at Atlanta’s Velvet Room club last night….
