Is Gucci Mane vs Jeezy Verzuz battle worse than Brandy vs Monica? Internet says they ‘owe a damn apology’
Looks like the hype created by Gucci Mane and Jeezy for the very first battle of ‘Verzuz’ Season 2 did not live up to its reputation as the long-time rivals got thumbs down from the Internet. The Atlanta rappers locked horns on their personal best songs on Thursday, November 19, at Magic City club in Atlanta.
The battle between Gucci Mane and Jeezy might have got tensed as the former mocked Jeezy with his diss track ‘Truth,’ as reported by TMZ. However, there were a lot of awkward moments as well which the Internet compared to Monica vs Brandy battle from Season 1 of Verzuz. The battle between the '90s pop singers was considered one of the worst Live Instagram battles but looks like Gucci Mane and Jeezy’s face-off dethroned them easily.
A lot of users took to Twitter to speak on the same lines. One user said, “#VERZUZ And we thought Brandy and Monica were hostile.” One individual asserted, “Not these boys being later than Gladys/Patti and Monica/Brandy combined #VERZUZ” Another added, “Why when Monica & Brandy battled, they complimented each other on what they liked about each other’s song. These ni**as ain’t showing no love, straight slick shots.” One social media user stated, “All of y’all that were saying Brandy & Monica’s battle was awkward to watch, owe everyone a damn apology. ARE Y’ALL WATCHING THIS SHIT RIGHT NOW?! #Verzuz” Another expressed, “And we thought brandy and monica was tense ... baby we might see some’n pop off #VERZUZ” One shared, “This brandy and Monica with guns.”

Gucci and Jeezy have had a long history of beef, one of the most prominent ones in recent hip-hop history, which turned into an all-out war. In 2005, Gucci was apparently blamed for killing Henry “Pookie Loc” Clark III, one of Jeezy's associates, during an alleged home invasion at his house. Clark’s body was found three days after the incident and Gucci didn't call the police at the time of the shooting. Gucci was eventually charged but was later cleared as he claimed to have acted in self-defense. Since then, Gucci has shown no remorse for Clark's death and has even posed memes about the incident. Over the years, Jeezy has continually insisted that he didn't provoke Pookie Loc to attempt to rob Gucci.
Gucci Mane did not leave any stone unturned to clown his opponent before he went for the battle against Jeezy. After Gucci Mane had confirmed he is going head to head with his long-time rival Jeezy, he was super active on his social media accounts. The official Twitter account of Verzuz had earlier shared a video of Gucci Mane which the 40-year-old rapper had shared on his Instagram. In the 30-second video, we saw Gucci running down a slope and making fun of Jeezy by saying, “The Verzuz is real. Me and Snowcone will be in the same room. But this what I wanna know, is fashion a part of the Verzuz? ‘Cause I’ma have that s**t on tomorrow and if buddy had that same funny a** shirt and the dumba** hat he had on the album cover, I ain’t doing it.”
