DJ Drama has dashed off a brief response to Young Jeezy claims that Drama wanted follow in the footsteps of DJ Khaled but refused to spread the love.
While keeping his response brief, Drama acknowledged and promised the situation would be addressed.
"D*mn what did I land to," he wrote Thursday (July 30). "Lol...It'll get addressed people, don't believe them lies...!" (DJ Drama's Twitter)
Jeezy's controversial statements regarding Drama landed online yesterday afternoon.
"Drama just started acting like a b*tch," Jeezy said in an interview for the September issue of XXL Magazine. "Drama wanted to be Khaled, but he didn't want to help nobody. He just changed, period. Look at his crew. The same n*ggas ain't around him. You ain't never been in no streets. I could never have no beef with a n*gga like that. He's a cornball. You made millions off my mixtapes, to the point where the f*ckin' feds scooped you up for bootlegging. I never even made the money he made off of Trap or Die or Tha Streets Iz Watchin, because they were selling and distributing them and making money...I'm not hating. But we will never do a mixtape together. I didn't charge that nigga for [contributing a verse to the song "5000 Ones," on Drama's official Atlantic Records debut]. But then when I need [a tape for one of my artists], and you want to charge me $20,000? I'll slap the sh*t out of Drama. He knows that. He wasn't loyal. But me putting my hands on that man ain't gonna make him respect what I'm saying. I'm just not gonna f*ck with him anymore." (Karen Civil)
Drama previously touched on the duo's shaky relationship.
"It is what it is," Drama said in an interview. "We made a lot of history together though. We put a lot of bangin' mixtapes out. There's a lot of rumors spreading around the Internet, you know. They said my chain was snatched and I got bloodied up. It got a little crazy out there but you know, there was a scuffle, grown men business. Nothing crazy, nothing serious. It happens everyday. (This Is 50)
Both artists' differences were publicized at last November's Dirty Awards with their entourages going head-to-head.
La the Darkman was in a fight with a member of Jeezy's Corporate Thugz Entertainment squad. Darkman said the scuffle stemmed from Jeezy dropping an F-bomb in front of Drama's name during a performance of The-Dream's "I Luv Your Girl" at his September album-release party in NYC. (MTV)
