Jeezy Finally Speaks On Freddie Gibbs Split

blame it on Shake July 18, 2014

With his new album Seen It All on the horizon, Jeezy sat down with Life+Times to speak on his life, career and more.

When talks of working with the younger generation of artists came around, Freddie Gibbs’ name popped up and Jeezy finally shared his side of their fallout and current situation.

I put him on a song with Eminem. I put him on a song with T.I. I put him on numerous mixtapes that I had. I took him on tour. Took him around the world. I spent money on videos that he didn’t use cause he didn’t like them, and it wasn’t his money.

So at the end of the day, my whole thing was to him was ‘I took you to every label in the game. They don’t wanna sign you. I don’t have no reason—I love you. You know what I’m saying? I think your music is dope, but they don’t want to sign you.’ So at the end of the day, when I called him up I was like, ‘Yo, I can’t really spend my money on you. I got family, other shit I gotta take care of. So, I’ll help you all I can, but I can’t fund it anymore.’

Cool. Conversation went well. We got off the conversation it was straight love. I hear diss records. What I’m supposed to do? I’m not replying to that. Nigga we getting money. YG just sold a million fuckking singles. At the end of the day, we all tried. It didn’t work. That shit happens in business all the time…

I still ain’t surprised, cause I don’t give a fuck. I’m still getting money. I’m still on top. You’re not gonna knock that. And I’m still having success around me, but when you listen and good things happen – we celebrate like with YG.
