Jeezy Feud "Blown Out Of Proportion," Freddie Gibbs Says
Freddie Gibbs speaks on Gucci Mane's influence, leaving Interscope Records.
Freddie Gibbs has shared his belief that his past feud with Jeezy "has a little disproportionate."
While speaking exclusively with HipHopDX, Gary, Indiana, rapper Freddie Gibbs offers his thoughts on the past feud between him and Jeezy. According to the rapper, their feud was taken out of proportion on both ends.
Gibbs added that despite the fact that he does not regret the release of his Jeezy diss records, he feels he should not have brought her to that level.
"Nah, not really," Freddie Gibbs said when asked if he ever spoke to Gucci Mane about his problems with Jeezy. "Not really. I don't really involve other people in my situations like that. I just keep a hundred. I just—I needed to grow. And I felt that I was not receiving the respect that I needed in this situation. So, I just did it on my own. That is all. I don't think that I have a bit disproportionate. My part and your part. We were both angry at the time. He said a few things in some interviews. Definitely, I replied. And I said things in the logs. I probably shouldn't have led to that level."
Gibbs spoke more of Gucci Mane, who says that he met through Jeezy, while speaking on his "10 Times" record, which has Gucci and E-40.
"I love Gucci Mane," the rapper said. "It was always a dream for me to do an album with him. Came out of the drug. What can I say? I would like that Gucci Mane was actually helping a black fully push the record...They don't call it the Trap of God for nothing. He definitely influenced a lot of rappers. Especially a lot of rap coming out of Atlanta. A lot of rap comes from everywhere."
Finally, Gibbs, revealed that if he was on Interscope Records and not branch out on his own, he'd probably be forgotten.
"I think this industry, this game is all about time," Gibbs said. "I think that I have to put in the work to get to where I am now. My time is now. I feel like I never, I feel like every time I put out a project, I feel like a new artist
