Southern rapper Gucci Mane has reportedly re-linked with Waka Flocka Flame‘s mother, Debra Antney, and now shares business ties with her.
While details are still developing, both individuals are once again working together.
After parting ways with his former manager earlier this year, XXLMag.com has learned that Gucci Mane and Debra Antney of Mizay Entertainment are back in business together. Along with being Waka Flocka Flame’s mother, Antney also helped build the careers of Nicki Minaj, OJ Da Juiceman and producer Lex Luger through her company, Mizay Entertainment. But her first successful venture was with Gooch. “That’s my nephew,” she told XXL. “I love him. This is beyond the music game.” The two quietly reconciled earlier this month and Deb is now repping Gucci once again. (XXL Mag)
After parting ways with Antney earlier this year, Waka said the distance hurt his relationship with Gucci.
“Yeah, [it affected my relationship with Gucci] all the way. All the way. I ain’t got beef or anything but it has changed. We don’t talk anymore. Nicki is still my homey, though. I got her number and can call her whenever. My momma ain’t got no problems with her or anything either. Let’s make that clear.” (VIBE)
Following his statement, Waka told the media he was not trying to spark a beef with Gucci.
“I don’t think it’s no split. We couldn’t meet each other on a business level — or a personal level,” Flocka told radio host DJ Drama. “Whatever the level is, I don’t know. I’m going this way and [he’s] going that way and we both killin’ these folk. That’s just what it is…Ain’t no drama. Don’t ever think it’s just like, ‘Ey, let’s get [him]’ … Don’t ever think I’m [going] to ride on him with another person. Let’s make that super clear.” (Hot 107.9)
Antney also called out the media for misreporting Waka’s comments.
“This is what I have to say to VIBE magazine. I am really kind of pissed off at you, for twisting the words up of Waka of the stuff he said,” she said in an interview. “Like he [Waka] don’t mess with Gucci, no he hasn’t spoken to him in a minute. Y’all stop using the s**t of what happened, like Gucci fired me…Things change, people went their separate ways and moved on. That doesn’t’ mean you got a godd*mn beef…Everybody’s cool and alright. I think people need to get their s**t straight. People don’t have anything better to do than run around with this negative s**t, then all you little a**holes get together and join in, like y’all know so much.” (All Hip Hop)
