In what has been one of the weirdest hip-hop beefs in a while, the Gunna vs. Freddie Gibbs situation continues to be addressed.
On Friday (January 14), Gunna appeared on The breakfast club and was asked about the situation with Gibbs, who appeared on Twitter a day before the release of the YSL rapper’s new album, DS4EVER. “He came out of the blue,” Gunna admitted of the beef. “I was rapping and his name came up. I had to let him know before he came out, because I’m not much of a sucker. I really try to work out everything and every situation before something goes wrong. So you already know, I knew where he was first and foremost, up top. He’s a man, and he’s gonna let you know. ‘I got a problem with you, or I don’t have a problem with you.’ That’s all. That’s really what it was. You said what you said and I said what I said.
Gunna said the beef came from Freddie Gibbs calling him a snitch because of a 2019 video that appeared of Gunna on TV that many people called an episode of Crime Stoppers. The Atlanta rapper said he chose not to address Gibbs at the time, but years later felt the time was right for the new song, “Poochie Gown,” where he raps the unsatisfactory bars, “I don’t fuck with Freddie Gibbs / He be telling canards.”
“I had to let him know, I don’t fuck with you,” Gunna continued, before saying Gibbs reached out to do a song with him after the social media row. “He tried to do a song with me through my manager. It’s like, huh? Wait? What?”
Gunna added: “He thought I forgot. I don’t forget. If I have a problem with you five years ago, it’s still…it doesn’t change. It can be 10 years later. I’ll catch you.”
