Young Jeezy has released a new diss song called “24, 23″ calling out fellow Southern rappers Gucci Mane and OJ Da Juiceman.
While an explanation for the song’s release has yet to emerge, Jeezy’s title focuses on the jersey numbers of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
“They say the club is off the chain,” Jeezy raps in the song. “I’m on some Louis sh*t today then some Gucci Mane. This n*gga still on my d*ck, they like some groupies, man. Can’t keep they lips closed, they worse than coochie man. And that fruity lookin’ stupid like some Coogi man. Let you trick me off these streets, you must be stupid man…Tell him this ain’t what he want, not to bust no, but between me and you, I think the boy slow….They say the club is off the chain, straight shots to the heads, them some Juice Man…Ask the real n*ggas in the city who got the juice man. This n*gga talkin’ about the work but what he do man. Y’all know these n*ggas really clowns and I’m the truth man.” (“24, 23″)
Both Jeezy and Gucci attacked each other on wax around 2005.
The Gucci and Jeezy quarreling stems from their collabo, “Icy”. Both agree that Def Jam asked Gucci for the song to be included on Jeezy’s album, due July 27, and were turned down. Gucci says Jeezy was upset and started dissing him. Jeezy says he really didn’t like “Icy” to begin with and was not upset that the song was not going to be included on his solo LP. His ire was raised, though, when he got ahold of a dis record Gucci was getting ready to put out about him and was confused. Jeezy subsequently went in the lab and made his dis song, “Stay Strapped.” (MTV)
Jeezy has previously said Gucci was the person responsible for their beef.
“Jeezy Jr. is tripping right now,” Young Jeezy said in a past interview. “It ain’t really no controversy. Me personally, I think he’s trying to sell records. I know where I stand, I know who I am. I’m grown. I don’t play them games. If you wanna play the games, who you think is gonna come out on top? Who do people love and respect more? It ain’t even no competition. What’s today? I give him three more weeks and [his career] is over. When that song dies, it’s done. That song was a stepping stone for me, dog. That wasn’t my career.” (Atlantic Records)
It was recently announced that Jeezy would headline a tour alongside Lil Wayne this summer.
The Young Money Presents: America’s Most Wanted Music Festival will be the follow up to Lil Wayne’s very successful “I Am Music Tour” playing a total of 47 arena dates across the US. After an opening act, Drake will perform, followed by Soulja Boy and Young Jeezy’s sets with Lil Wayne closing out the show. The tour will kick off on July 27, 2009 at the Toyota Pavillion in Scranton, Pennsylvania and end on August 23, 2009 at the Superpages.com Center in Dallas, Texas. (The Urban Daily)
