As Def Sounds previously reported, Young Jeezy and Rick Ross got into an altercation backstage at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards. Now Jeezy addresses the incident and explains how it went down from his perspective.
During a recent interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood on Power 106, Young Jeezy spoke out on his altercation with Rick Ross.
I mean first of all, it was a great awards show. I mean basically, it was just a good show. I went there, got out with Wiz, it was cool, we did our thing. So in the hallway, we’re walking out, so me and him never really seen each other face to face before, for real for real, and I just felt like he spoke, I spoke, and that was basically it.
Young Jeezy says they could have settled all differences right there:
But at the end of the day, it’s been going on for a while so I just felt like if it was to be handled, it should have been handled there. We either gon’ get past it or keep moving. So in my words, I just feel like a lot of these cats are actor rappers. And I’m Jeezy… they could never be me, and that’s just pretty much that.
As the Atl rapper continued, he adds:
At the end of the day, I refuse to be part of this WWF propaganda and BS to sell records. If that’s who you want to be, you want to be a tough guy, you be that way. I’m a boss, I’m a G, and that’s just how it is.
When asked where it puts him and Ross now, Jeezy states:
I’m gettin’ my money, and at the end of the day, I’m not worried about no other grown man, so that’s where I’m at on it. I’m gonna continue to make records, continue to make hits continue to be what I am, legendary.
As the interview went on, Young Jeezy also spoke on his longtime feud with Gucci Mane:
“I mean, I feel like everybody know that boy retarded, nobody take him seriously. He got an ice cream cone on his face. That being said, I’m not going back. I’m going forward. And then it’s crazy because they’ll call you and want you on a song. And then when you don’t get on a song, that’s what happens. Of course, he called me a few times. I just said it wasn’t a good idea. We past that. I don’t want to go backwards. He reached out a few times and I didn’t do the record, so I guess he feel a way. He didn’t take his medicine that day. Shortbus shorty.”
