AceShowbiz - Freddie Gibbs won't let anyone take credit for his accomplishment in his career. When someone alluded that his former colleague Young Jeezy was responsible for his career, the Gary rapper was quick to set the record straight.
"The greatest thing Jeezy ever did was thug motivation 101. The second greatest thing he ever did was give us @FreddieGibbs," the fan wrote on his Twitter account on Tuesday, March 24. Gibbs caught wind of the tweet and simply responded, "I gave us @FreddieGibbs."
He wasn't necessarily taking a jab at Jeezy with his response but it was no secret that they had friction when Gibbs left CTE World in 2012 after signing in the year before. Gibbs, however, shut down beef rumors as he claimed that it was merely a business and branding decision.
While Jeezy might have introduced the "Bandana" MC to a wider audience, the latter was already getting his name out even before that. That was proven with him being featured on the same XXL Freshmen Cover with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, J. Cole and Jay Rock among other in 2010 following his critically-acclaimed mixtapes.
Jeezy, meanwhile, previously addressed his role in others' journey in the rap game. During a conversation with Charlamagne tha God, Jeezy explained how he helped jump-start a lot of careers though he didn't get much in return. "I've tried to put people on, but everybody that was a part of my first project, they on," Jeezy said. "[DJ] Drama, he might beg to differ but that Gangsta Grillz wasn't in the hood till Young [Jeezy] was on that thing. Trap or Die was monumental."
He also shared that he helped build YG's talent early in addition to assisting in putting together the Compton rapper's debut album "My Krazy Life".
