Gucci Mane is on a warpath this week, continuing hit campaign against Young Jeezy in yet another new diss track, the latest being “Respect Me” featuring southern rap peer Rick Ross.
The issues between the two rappers are on-going, dating back to the mid-2000s when they collaborated on Gucci’s hit single, “So Icy.” However, things have heated up over the past couple weeks, beginning with Jeezy calling Gucci “retarded”, only after Gucci said (in a separate interview) that he didn’t respect Jeezy at all.
Gucci droped a diss and video for a track called “Truth,” and followed Friday (October 19) with yet another, entitled “Respect Me,” off the recently released DJ Cash Crook mixtape, Large On Da Streets 28. On the new song, he takes direct shots at Jeezy, and even recalls the 2005 shooting death CTE associate Pookie Loc who attempted to rob him.
“N**** gonna respect me, n**** best respect me / Ain’t no way in hell I’m let you disrespect me,” Gucci chants on the chorus. “RPGs for your family ‘cus your best friend tried to try me / Your rhyme game is so slimy, but all my n****s are grimy / My cover started firing — beefing over ‘So Icy.’
“Mad I’m f***ing your wifey,” the rapper continues, while Rozay chimes in with more subtle digs. “I push a button and them killers comin’ / Disrespect me, n****s get nothin’.”
In another track, entitled “F*** The World”, off Gucci’s Trap God tape, he tapes a couple pop shots at Yung Joc, who he claims went broke, and Jeezy’s former manager Kenneth “Block” Russell, whose deal with Diddy for Bad Boy South fell apart.
“I got all eyes on me like Pac did / But I ain’t tryin’ to go broke like Joc did / I ain’t tryin’ to f*** my deal up like Block did,” he raps.
As of press time, Gucci’s targets have yet to respond.
