Jeezy proposed a Verzuz battle with Gucci Mane, which the Wopster “respectfully declined”.
During his appearance on The Breakfast Club, Jeezy spoke about the release of his new album The Recession 2, his fiancée Jeannie Mai’s health status, and more. Of course, the topic of Verzuz came up and, despite his upcoming battle against T.I. becoming official, that wasn’t always the plan.

“Swizz called me and I was like, if I do [Verzuz], there’s only one person I’d do it with. He was like, ‘who?’ I was like ‘Gucci [Mane]’. Reach out to him, let me know what’s up,” said Jeezy.
Obviously, given their history, this would have broken the internet and quite possibly become the most popular episode of Verzuz to date. It won’t be happening, though.
“I did that,” continued Jeezy. “I reached out, Swizz hit back and said he respectfully declined. Cool. Done. Kept it moving, I was gone do it for the culture. We could have did it for the culture. Hung up the phone, three minutes later, that’s when I seen my brother [T.I.’s] video calling me out. We could have done it for the culture. I’m in, it’s whatever.”
Jeezy and Tip haven’t discussed the specifics yet, not even knowing where they’ll film in Atlanta.
We can’t help but wonder how things could have gone… Gucci Mane has previously said that there is nobody that can take him on in Verzuz. Do you think the right person will eventually come knocking on his door?
Jeezy’s Verzuz talk begins after 11:30 in the video below.
