I bet you didn’t know Jeezy had a little beef with Nas years ago. After Nas proclaimed “Hip Hop Is Dead” in 2006, people thought the Queens rapper took a shot at the rappers in the South.
At that time, the South started to run the game with artists like T.I., Jeezy, and Ludacris. Jeezy didn’t take too kindly to Nas’s song. He went on the radio after that responding with rage. Shortly, after that Nas called Jeezy on the phone to explain to him what he meant. Jeezy was already prepared to go to war with Nas. But, according to Jeezy, Nas was calm, cool, and collected on the phone. He also assured that his song had nothing to do with the Snowman. Jeezy always remembered this.
Jeezy Thanks Nas
He was so inspired by Nas’s demeanor that he decided to take the same route in his other beefs. The Atlanta rapper has had known beef with Rick Ross and Freddie Gibbs. Ultimately, both of those beefs were squashed. Jeezy actually signed Freddie Gibbs to his CTE Label in 2011. Shortly, thereafter in 2012, Gibbs decided to leave the label. He and Jeezy weren’t seeing eye to eye which led to the two dissing each other. Gibbs dissed his former boss on “Real” and Jeezy retaliated on “Therapy For My Soul”. After patching things up, Jeezy chalks up his beefs up to bad communication.

The Shop: Uninterrupted
Going forward, he promises to communicate better. Jeezy has been busy lately after dropping his Gangsta Grillz mixtape, Snowfall, with DJ Drama. Good thing these two were able to end their beef as well. The Atlanta legend also made an appearance on The Shop: Uninterrupted, but the episode will never air. Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was on the episode as well, and his speech wasn’t safe for television. The Shop is co-hosted by Maverick Carter and LeBron James. Carter made remarks stating that Ye’s problematic speech led to the production company canceling the episode. Jeezy may be back on The Shop soon with another black billionaire.
