Jeezy is set to take on T.I. in their upcoming Verzuz battle on Nov. 19, but the trap founding father revealed that his original dream opponent was Gucci Mane, who declined to go up against him.

In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Jeezy said that Verzuz’s co-creator Swizz Beatz called him about the opportunity. “I was like ‘Yo, Swizz… If I do it, there’s only one person I’d do it with. And he was like ‘Who?’ ‘Gucci, reach out to him. Let me know what’s up.’”

“Swizz hit back and said he respectfully declined,” he continued. “Cool. Done. Kept it moving. I was gonna do it for the culture.”

The duo have had a longtime feud, stemming back to 2005 when Gucci killed one of Jeezy’s associates, Henry “Pookie Loc” Clark III. The incident happened in an alleged home invasion at Gucci’s house, but he didn’t call the police after the shooting and Clark’s body was found a few days later. Gucci was later acquitted for the murder.

While Gucci didn’t say anything about a Verzuz battle with Jeezy, he did take to Twitter last week to share: “Stop asking me about doing a @verzuzonline battle unless they got a million dollars they scared of Wop. #GuccimaneVsWhoever.”
