Atlanta producer Zaytoven has come forward to provide context behind incarcerated rapper Gucci Mane‘s “The Definition” diss track aimed at West Coast hip-hop artist Game. #EBeef
According to Zaytoven, Gucci’s issues with the fellow rap star originated from social media.
“Well I think it was because, I remember Gucci was saying something on Twitter about boxing another rapper. Then Game was the guy that responded. I think that’s where it stems from. Some months back. Gucci wasn’t trying to direct it towards Game but Game responded and he probably felt some type of way. … I was like, “Aww, for real?” But you know, I’ve been with Gucci his whole career, so it’s not really that surprising. I was just like, “Oh, that’s crazy.”” (XXL Mag)
Zaytoven also dished on how the locked up rapper has been able to work behind bars.
“He’s got everybody. It’s a lot of guys that’s really waiting for his call to do whatever he says that needs to be done. Some of us, we take it upon ourselves to get certain things done. To make sure he stays poppin’. Anytime he comes up with an idea and wants something done, he’s going to give somebody a call and we’re going to make it happen.” (XXL Mag)
The jailed ATL rapper’s newest record premiered online last Friday (June 6) afternoon.
“This n*gga Game definition of a rap n*gga,” Gucci raps on the Zaytoven-produced track. “I’m not a lover or a fighter, I’m a trap n*gga/On Twitter talking ’bout you wanna scrap, n*gga/Well, I’ll knock you out and drag you to the trap n*gga/Real deal, Holyfield, CTE Killa/I can’t lie, I robbed a lot of Cali n*ggas/Know some real OGs in LA, n*gga” (“The Definition”)
Coincidentally, Mane announced some new album releases last week.
“Eh man, it’s Big Gucci, what’s happening? I make music, I make money, I make enemies but my fans made me the Trap God. Big Guwop. 1017. 2014. We’re still running the streets. June 17, the empire’s declaring war. World War 3D the series. Three albums in one day. The Green Album by the Migos. The Purple Album by Young Thug and The White Album with PeeWee Longway. … July 4, we’re dropping Trap House 4 and September 13 I’m dropping Trap God 3. I’m locked up but still run the streets from jail.” (1017 Records)
