While there was a great deal of not-so-subtle jabs, the night eventually ended with Jeezy and Gucci taking pictures together and making it clear that they are putting the culture before their old beef. However, given the recent string of murders and gun violence in the hip hop community, the two men felt that it was time to show the younger generation that they can put the music before the beef. The gesture was initiated by Jeezy who maintained his cool despite being provoked by Gucci on stage. Jeezy and Gucci Mane do in fact share a violent history that resulted in the death of Jeezy’s friend and affiliate Pooki Loc, who was shot and killed by Gucci in what he says was an act of self-defense.

TwitterFacebook Considering that his legal troubles are still pending, many followers pointed out that he is probably not in a position to be saying he would kill someone. Luckily, these two rappers have much more far-reaching influence than Troy Ave. The battle created a lot of buzz in the hip hop world, with some fans worrying the event would reignite old tensions, while others remained hopeful for a reconciliation. Taking to Instagram Sunday night to share his perspective, Troy Ave suggested that Jeezy should have murdered Gucci during the live performance, writing, “If you killed somebody I love and we performing on camera…well I guess I’m killing u on camera. However, it seems that not everyone wanted to see a peaceful evening. #StreetsIsAMyth.”
Troy Ave made his violent tendencies very public when he was arrested in 2016 for attempted murder and illegal weapons possession after a shooting at a T.I. Troy Ave thinks that Jeezy should’ve killed Gucci Mane on Verzuz Live. Additionally, it seems that Troy Ave missed the entire point of the historical evening. View this post on Instagram
