Gucci Mane’s never been the one to hold his thoughts. After firing at Young Jeezy and T.I. earlier this month, the Brick Squad general had more to get off his chest. During a visit to Atlanta’s Hot 107.9, Gucci didn’t have pleasant words towards Nicki Minaj, French Montana, and Yo Gotti. In Nicki Minaj and French Montana’s case, Gucci Mane feels appreciation hasn’t been returned to his 1017 camp where Waka Flocka’s mother Debra Antney managed both artists at one point in time. Nicki’s worked her way up to pop super stardom with YMCMB, while French’s on the cusp of major success aligning with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group and Diddy’s Bad Boy Records.
“It’s like when she came to Atlanta she [Nicki] gave me a shout out and said I helped her in her career. But at the end of the day I just think you keep it real with somebody you can’t expect them to keep it real with you. I told you man in this industry people wanna be famous and forget the people that helped them get to where they at. I tip my hat to Nicki for being a hard worker, but at the same time she know she ain’t keep it real.”
Watch the interview and read Gucci’s thoughts on French Montana, and Yo Gotti after the jump…..
On French Montana:
“French Montana know he didn’t keep it real. My thing is I ain’t going out of my way to tell somebody to act real or they fake or they lame because that ain’t got nothing to do with me. But when they start spilling into my business or my affairs I’m a vocal person, I usually speak on it.”
“I said Gotti was cool until he turned into a busta. So I wasn’t saying that we wasn’t even cool. I said we was cool until this point right here. My main problem with him is that he dropped his mixtape on 10/17 and tried to ride my wave like he was an artist of mine or we get some kind of money together. So I just felt like for an artist to drop their mixtape on 10/17, which is my label. All my label mates dropped their mixtape on 10/17. Why would you drop it on 10/17 and when I call you as my partna you say, ‘oh I didn’t know you were dropping a mixtape.’ Now the whole world know I’m dropping this [Trap God] mixtape. I’ve been promoting this mixtape. Both me and you on the top of Worldstar. You with a freestyle and me with a video, but you say you unaware I got a mixtape and I got a banner that says it’s coming out 10/17. So it just made me lose all respect for him instantly.”
Why would another artist put they mixtape out on 10/17 if they ain’t Bricksquad. You ain’t me the #TRAPGOD
