First the Fat Boys break up, every day I wake up, somebody got a problem with……Jeezy? It seems like the Snowman can’t seem to stay out of beef. We all know the storied beef between Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane. We know about the infamous brawl between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy at the BET Awards in Atlanta, Ga. Even Duct Tape Entertainment’s Alley Boy and Trouble have taken shots at the rapper on twitter and various radio interviews. Alley Boy recently tweeted, “Real niggas ain’t gonna bite their tounge wit Jeezy fake faggot ass.” But it seems like Jeezy’s problems are getting closer to home with a few of Jeezy’s former friends and lablemates putting Jeezy in the lyrical crosshairs and taking shots at the Snowman.
Recently Young Jeezy’s former friend and business partner Demetrius “Kinky B” Ellerbee filed a 5 million dollar lawsuit in Georgia, claiming that he helped launch Jeezy’s career and Jeezy has been stiffing him out of some money for years. In the suit, Ellerbee claims that he is owed money from 4 albums, of which two went platinum; “The Inspiration” and “The Recession.” Snowman denied these accusations and fired back that he and Kinky B were never friends or business partners. However, Jeezy can be heard rapping “Kinky B told me finish my meal, Def Jam 7 figures we can finish the deal,” a clear acknowledgement of a business relationship and friendship. Ellerbee was even feature in Young Jeezy’s documentary “Hustlerz Ambition,” where he explains how the two met in a youth boot camp in 1995 long before Young Jeezy’s affiliation with the infamous Black Mafia Family (BMF).
After 4 years of incarceration for narcotics trafficking, Bleu Divinci, a member of BMF and former associate of Jeezy’s took to the airways to publically air out Young Jeezy. Bleu claims that Young Jeezy turned his back on BMF, and did not help Big Meech (leader of BMF) with any money toward his appeal of his 30 year sentence. Jeezy responded to Bleu’s claims on a diss track entitled, “Get Right.” “Get Right” has become a club smash with in the last year but few know that it is in fact a diss aimed at Bleu Divinci. Snowman takes shots at Bleu, “Everybody switching up sides who can you trust, believe what you want to believe what’s there to discuss. Young the type of nigga to throw you the keys and ride the bus, and still give a nigga my last enough is enough.” Bleu Divinci didn’t waste any time responding to Jeezy, he quickly shot back with the track with “Got Right.” In this diss aimed at the Snowman, Bleu Divinci raps, “Go on and tell ’em what the truth is you’s a bitch, Turn your house into the feds, now who’s the sntich?
And now we come to the Jeezy’s latest beef with the “Babyface Gangsta” from Gary, Indiana Freddie Gibbs. Freddy Gibbs is an up and coming MC that was signed to Young Jeezy’s lable CTE (Corporate Thugz Entertainment) in 2011. Gibbs released …while nobody knows for sure why these two have split, some have speculated that the relationship soured after Gibbs was a guest on the Breakfast Club and remained neutral when asked about how he felt about the disses coming from Gucci Mane, Alley Boy and Rick Ross. Charlemagne Tha God asked, “Did you ever feel like you wanted to get involved?” Gibbs answered “I just chose to sit back and let him handle that and see where he goes with it.” Gibbs went on to say, “You just gotta choose your words wisely and pick your battles. I don’t know Gucci Mane personally; I wasn’t around during that whole whatever that was. I wasn’t around that so I would be a fool to jump into that.” Looking from the outside in it seems that this is where the rift started. A few weeks later Freddie Gibbs confirmed that he was no longer singed to CTE. Taking the high road, Gibbs initially tried to downplay the rift in various interviews but recently Gibbs has started to become more vocal about his problems with Young Jeezy. In an interview Closed Sessions Radio Gibbs took a more direct approach when addressing his beef with Young Jeezy. “It’s more so disappointing because I looked up to him so much, that’s my fault though. I shouldn’t had, you know what I mean, looked up to some rapper ass nigga.” Gibbs went on to say, “I can tell you he not solid. You know what I mean? By the way he treats his niggas and the way he run his business.”
In typical Snowman fashion, Young Jeezy seems to be unfazed. Recently, news broke that YG, one of the hottest MC’s coming out of the West Coast signed with Young Jeezy’s CTE imprint. With an album scheduled to drop in September, 8732 clothing crushing the urban clothing market, and a new shoe deal with Gourmet Footwear it’s clear that Jeezy has no plans of slowing down or looking back. The Snowman is looking to keep his momentum going from his “It’s Tha World” mixtape that fans and critics have praised as being one of his best works to date; and if songs like “Stylin,” “How it Feel,” and “RIP,” are any indication of what’s to come, fans should definitely be ready for a “Snow Go” this fall.
