Jeezy Blames Freddie Gibbs For Ruining Eminem Relationship

Jeezy blamed Freddie Gibbs for burning a bridge with Eminem. 

"I messed up a lot of relationships, even with Eminem," Jeezy said. "Just by me putting Gibbs on the record that was for me and, trying to convince Em to do the record, and the record leaking in the process. That burned a great bridge for me. Eminem is my dude.

Vanilla Ice dissed "Shell Shocked," a cut made by Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J and Ty Dolla $ign. "With respect to all of the artists, the song doesn't really do it for me,” Vanilla Ice said. "It feels a little artificial. What I mean by that is that it sounds like a bunch of executives in the corporate world put it together. It really does not fit the theme of the Ninja Turtles legend.
