Young Jeezy Addresses Fight With Rick Ross, Calls Gucci Mane "Retarded"
Young Jeezy says he wasn't touched during the fight that broke out at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards.
Young Jeezy and Rick Ross' camps threw it down at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards, engaging in a fight backstage. But during an interview with Power 106's Big Boy's Neighborhood, he said that he was never touched during the melee but didn't go in-depth as to his feelings on Rozay.
"I mean first of all, it was a great awards show. I mean basically, it was just a good show. I went there, got out with Wiz, it was cool, we did our thing," he said. "So in the hallway, we're walking out whatever whatever. So me and him never really seen each other face to face before, and I just felt like he spoke, I spoke, and that was basically it. But at the end of the day, it's been going on for a while so I just felt like if it was to be handled, it should have been handled there. We either gon' get past it or keep moving. So in my words, I just feel like a lot of these cats are actor rappers. And I'm Jeezy - they could never be me. That's just pretty much that.
"At the end of the day, I refuse to be part of this WWF propaganda and B.S. to sell records," he continued. "If that's who you want to be, you want to be a tough guy, you be that way. I'm a boss, I'm a G. That's just how it is."
He also addressed his ongoing feud with Gucci Mane, who recently said he has "no respect" for Jeezy and that they'll "never" reconcile. The Snowman didn't have kind words for Gooch, calling him "retarded" and stating that he turned down several requests to collaborate on a song.
"I mean, I feel like everybody know that boy retarded, nobody take him seriously. He got an ice cream cone on his face. That being said, I'm not going back. I'm going forward. And then it's crazy because they'll call you and want you on a song. And then when you don't get on a song, that's what happens. Of course [he called me]. He called me a few times. I just said it wasn't a good idea. We past that. I don't want to go backwards. He reached out a few times and I didn't do the record, so I guess he feel a way. He didn't take his medicine that day. Shortbus shorty."
