Gucci Mane Says Beef With Yo Gotti Stems From ‘Trap God’ Mixtape Release Date

By BallerStatus Staff   /   Published 11/01/12

Gucci Mane has been going at everyone in recent weeks. Obviously, everyone's heard the issues with Young Jeezy, the stab at Yung Joc, and most recently, past collaborator Yo Gotti.

Following a tweet, in which he threw a shot at Gotti, the ATL hip-hop star conducted an interview on Atlanta's Hot 107.9 radio station where he further explained why he has issues with his Memphis peer, revealing that it all stems from their mixtapes -- CM7 and Trap God -- dropping on the same day, October 17th.

"I said Gotti was cool with me until he turned into a buster. I never said that we wasn't cool, I said we was cool until this point right here," he said during the interview. "My main problem with him was that he dropped his mixtape on 10/17 (the name of Gucci's record label), and tried to like ride my wave, like he was an artist of mine or we get some kind of money together.

"For an artist to drop they mixtape on 10/17, which is my label on the day I drop all [my projects], why would you drop it on 10/17? When I call you as my partner, to ask you why you did it, you say 'Oh, I didn't know you was dropping a mixtape.' ... It just made me lose all respect from him instantly," Gucci continued.

Despite Gucci's claim, Yo Gotti said that wasn't the case. During a separate interview with radio personality Devin Steel on Memphis' K97, the Tennessee rapper denied that he chose the date intentionally, but simply didn't realize it.

"It came down to ... me and [Gucci Mane] were dropping on the same day. We didn't know it," Gotti explained. "I didn't know it in the beginning. I found out a day or so later, but once I found out -- he supposed to be my homeboy -- I hit his phone, immediately. He didn't answer. I told [his camp] to reach out to me; he never reached out to me.

"Last minute, we in the lab, we heard about the tweet -- immediately, I hit his phone, like 'What's up homie? You good?' We chopped it up. Long story short, from that point, I realized homie had an issue for whatever reason it was -- his free music and my free music coming the same day. I don't really get it, but on the strength of him being my homie, I'm like cool, I'll coming out tomorrow."

    Gotti is hilarious- "his free music and my free music coming the same day" thats real talk though. Its petty of Gucci to get worked up over something that he aint capitalizing from. "if it dont make money then it dont make sense."
