A near-fatal shoot-out between incarcerated rapper Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy‘s entourages reportedly took place Thursday (March 4) afternoon in Atlanta, Georgia.
According to reports, Gucci’s artist Waka Flocka Flame sustained an injury.
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 began 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)
Gucci and Jeezy ended their past rap dispute earlier this year.
“I learned in the rap game, once you got heat people wanna stand next to you,” Gucci revealed in an interview with radio personality Big Boy. “Once I established myself as being a credible artist as someone who could make some money — then in that time, the people wanna bring something to the table…Before the conversation we had collaborated, we had been talking. And we kinda had a mutual agreement together. Both of us are so big and got so many people that wanna party with us, it’s kinda selfish to say we travel around the world — I knew me personally, I didn’t want that on my hands…We already collaborated on two songs, one is already out and one is debuting in a few weeks.” (“Big Boy’s Neighborhood”)
No further details have been revealed as of now.
