News: Waka Flocka Says He'll Never Work W/ Gucci Mane Again: "I Greet Fans, He Punches Fans"

Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame has finally stepped up and dished out all of his issues with Gucci Mane, specifically what sparked their current war of words.
According to Flocka, he knows for a fact Gucci's Twitter account was not hacked a few weeks ago.
Flocka isn't buying it. "Nah, that Twitter wasn't hacked because we had a conversation before that. Real aggressive words like, 'N---a let's get up, let's do this,' " Waka said when he appeared on "RapFix Live" on Wednesday (March 27). Waka didn't reveal the details of that "real aggressive" conversation and was baffled as to why Gucci would label him disloyal. "I don't know. Honest to God truth, I don't know because I'm the loyalist person you could ever see. I took on a man's beef, risked my life, hung out the window, risked my freedom. I never backed in a corner," he said, referencing his involvement in Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy's beef. "To my knowledge, it can't be nothing but jealously or something because there is nothing I did disloyal." (MTV)
Despite putting out music and projects together, Waka vowed to never work with Gucci again.
Things get even stickier because Gucci Mane is managed by Flocka's mom Deb Antney. Even if the old friends manage to patch things up, Waka says he will never do another deal with Gucci or work with him in the studio. "It ain't gonna never be no business, ever in life. No music or nothing," he vowed. "I don't feel nothing he say out his mouth. It ain't real." The "O Let's Do It" rapper even referenced Gucci's recent legal woes. On Wednesday, it was reported that Gucc turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest after he was accused of assaulting a fan. "He ain't it, he's bad vibes around me," he said. "I greet fans; he punches fans. It's a difference." (MTV)
Prior to these comments, the Atlanta rapper stayed mum on the Mane topic.
"I don't know, man," he demurred. "I ain't got no thoughts, it's just like ... a sunny day [today]. It's sunny today, what's tomorrow [bring]? It's not even a thought." Details are slim, but on March 15, Gucci called out his protégé on Twitter, saying that he was fired from Brick Squad (he later claimed his Twitter account was hacked). Waka has since fired back at the fellow hip-hopper through several careful re-tweets, and the aforementioned slights at the Diplomats show. Pressed for details, Waka seemed to indicate that the two had just grown apart. "The equator used to be tight, but it just gets wider as the years go," he explained. "Sh*t happens." (The Boom Box)
Recent reports suggested Gucci's Twitter account was hacked and, therefore, the tweets directed at Waka were not from him.
Hmm...Rahim from Warner/Atlantic says Gucci's manager claims Gucci's twitter account was hacked into. But then why is it that more than 12 hours later, 1) there is no "explanation" or retraction tweet. And 2) The diss tweet is still up. Look, hacking happens, so it's possibility. But it doesn't seem to add up in this situation. Also, usually you don't see just one hacked tweet. Also...Gucci can be volatile. So, I'll just say instead, I hope this incident of bad blood between one of my favorite buddy teams in trap rap isn't irreversible. (Miss Info TV)
