Gucci Mane protege Waka Flocka Flame has confirmed reports that his camp and Young Jeezy's entourage got into a brawl yesterday afternoon.
Writing on his Twitter page, the rapper briefly addressed on the incident.
"shout out to shawty who ran up wit the lumps on his face that look like Martin Lawrence .... lol," he wrote Thursday evening. (Waka Flocka Flame's Twitter)
According to initial reports, Flame sustained an injury to his face.
Can we all just get along? This afternoon, members of Gucci Man's crew (including Waka Flocka) confronted Jeezy's clique in an Atlanta clothing store. A fight ensued and Waka's security detail fired a gun during the melee. No injuries were reported, but an eyewitness said of Waka, "Whoever he is he's got a big swollen eye now." (Rap Radar)
Police have also confirmed the event took place around mid-afternoon.
The fight started around 4 p.m. Thursday when Mane's group walked into the store -- popular with celebrities -- and spotted Jeezy's associates, said witness Patrick Morrison. "There was a physical altercation inside the location between several men," Atlanta Police spokesman James Polite confirmed to the AJC. One of the men produced a weapon "and as a result a private armed security guard of a local entertainer discharged his weapon." (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Further speculation has begun mapping out possible beef-motivated scenarios for the incident.
Numerous sources allege that Flocka was attacked by Slick Pulla, an artist signed to Young Jeezy's Corporate Thugz Entertainment label, and member of the group USDA (United Dope Boyz of America). "Story has it that Waka Flocka and Slick Pulla have been beefing since an altercation that happened in Miami a few months ago," explained celebrity photographer Freddy O. "Slick Pulla wanted to get it popping and that's what he tried to do. After a tussle and fight throughout the entire Walter's store, with customers, gunfire rang out. In the end Slick Pulla left the store while Waka was left with a bloody nose and eye." (All Hip Hop)
