Confirming he was at Luckie Lounge Wednesday night, Jeezy said he left the scene unharmed.
"We was at the bar," Jeezy said in an interview. "I know they said something broke out, but we ain't catch nothing. We got up out of the building and we left. Headed back to the studio and kicked it...H*ll no! N*ggas stab me? Ain't no one dead is it? [laughs] Nah, we one hundred, quit playing. I'm a tell you something too man, you better quit listening to them TMZ-*ss dudes, man. Come on man. These internet gangstas -- I mean, b*tches. Nah, we good man. We one hundred.

Jeezy recently spoke on why he released the diss record "24, 23" which goes at Gucci Mane.
"It wasn't a question of 'Why do the song now?'" Jeezy said in an interview. "It was more so of when dude went away, did his little time or whatever - he came back. The sh*t was squashed...But as you know, Slick Pulla is locked up...He started taking shots on his little mixtapes....To be honest, I don't have a problem with Gucci because I wear it -- I have a problem with Radric [Gucci's Mane's given name]...This is what he does...He says what he says, then he hides his hands. Then when you say something, you're the bad guy. I'm definitely not the aggressor in this situation. I'm just holding my business. I'm a grown a** man...I don't got no reason to be picking on nobody or f*ck with nobody for no exposure. Come on, dog. I ain't never did no sh*t like that to sell no records or get no notoriety. It's personal because he keeps f*cking throwing rocks and hiding his hands, man." (MTV)
