A week after Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross got hounded with viral death threats, fellow Southern rapper Gucci Mane is now getting warned about performing at a Georgia concert this week.
A masked man posted a video this week aimed at Gucci and promised payback for the rapper’s frequent bragging of slaying one of his late gang members.
“In one of your songs, you told Jeezy, ‘Go dig your dead partner up, I bet he can’t say sh*t.’ N*gga how you think we feel about that? F*ck Jeezy and how he feels about it, how you think his family feel about that sh*t? … I even think you coming to Macon just to say you came to Macon and nobody didn’t do sh*t to you. We already know you go 30, 40 police on deck. Yeah, we was informed, n*ggas know what’s up. We know you’re staffed up with security.” (Its Certified)
The gang member also said Gucci would be putting his life on the line if he came to their neck of the woods.
“You should stay home, stay home. Don’t come direspecting our city like that because that’s what you’re trying to do. You wanna have some more street cred to be like you came to Macon to the home of the man that you killed and all them n*ggas that’s supposed to be gangstas didn’t do sh*t to you. That’s what you want to leave saying? Why gamble like that? Why play like that? You playing with ourselves, you playing with the set, you blatantly trying to disrespect us. You bringing this sh*t back up. I guess you think this some sh*t to play with. This ain’t no rap sh*t. This real sh*t.” (Its Certified)
The threat of violence stems from Gucci killing another man in self-defense nearly a decade ago.
Apparently, the reason Gucci Mane’s life is in danger because of some of his lyrics deemed disrespectful. If you remember, Gucci Mane was acquitted of murder in 2005 by reason of self defense. The person killed was an associate of Young Jeezy’s that went by the name of Pookie Loc. After Gucci was acquitted of the murder charges, he and Jeezy seemed to squash beef. According to Silver Skull Face Guy, Gucci has been subliminally talking about Pookie Loc for a long time. In a recent Young Jeezy diss track, the “So Icy” rapper spit, “Go dig your partner up n***a I bet he can’t say sh*t.” Because of that line, Silver Skull face Guy and his crew are looking for Gucci to pay for his crime and disrespect.

Last week, Rick Ross confronted speculation which suggested he nixed a North Carolina show due to death threats.
“It never was due to any threats. Not to cut you off but let me explain something to you, I’m a certified man, I am a real boss and this is something that everybody needs to understand. Gangsters move in silence. Gangsters move in silence. And in situations like that, I just remember something an old-school Dade County gangster told me a long time ago that any dude can stand in the crowd with 30, 40 dudes and everybody real, everybody trill, everybody about that life, everybody gangster, you understand? But when those choppers come out, everybody fold.” (99 Jamz)
