Young Jeezy and Rick Ross haven’t exactly been on good terms over the past year, throwing shots at one another on records and interviews. Now, Jeezy’s signee Freddie Gibbs hints that he might step in and get involved with the feud.
During an interview with MTV.co.uk, Gangsta Gibbs said that listeners will have to wait for his Baby Faced Killa mixtape to drop to see if he calls out Rozay, but makes it clear that he’ll be dissing anyone who’s talked greasy about him and his crew.
“You’ll see on the [Baby Faced Killa] mixtape. I’ve been known not to bite my tongue. These guys blowing shots at people will definitely be dealt with accordingly,” he said. “They’re not gonna say anything too crazy because they don’t want that real life s**t. They just wanna rap, you know? We’re not really into that, we’re gonna let them know what it’s really about. There ain’t gonna be no freestyle battle or no bulls**t like that.”
Ca$h Out has a hit on his hands with “Cashin Out,” the club and radio smash that hit No. 11 on the BillboardR&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts this week. But the upstart is already getting ready to deliver his next release.
“The next single is coming [in May],” the Epic Records signee confirmed to XXLMag.com “We [got a] top ten, possibly number one record right now, so we gotta go on and hit ’em in the head again. Why not have two, three songs on the radio? We gotta continue smashin’ it. And that’s what everybody expecting anyways.”
The Atlanta native said that the record is something that everyone can connect to, including L.A. Reid, who signed Ca$h Out. “It’s a record you can relate to for people that’s always hatin’ on you and want to take your spot,” he continued. “Mr. Reid, actually, that’s the song he loved when I went in his office and performed it. So why not let it be the second single? It’s crazy. It’s something that everybody can relate to. When it drop, you gonna be like, ‘I can relate to this.’ It’s definitely gonna top ‘Cashin Out.’”
He’s not ready to let his current hit lose momentum just yet, though. Some artists have already freestyled over “Cashin Out,” but the 21-year-old is getting ready to drop an official remix. “We workin’ on that now,” he confirmed, although he isn’t sure which artists would be on the final version. “Jeezy just laid his verse. Wale did his. Bow Wow went in, salute to him. Meek Mill. Red Café. Juelz Santana.”
“Jeezy hit me the other day,” he continued. “He wanna go in from scratch and make some magic. French called me personally on the phone. Wale text me. Everybody been keeping it 100.”
XXL recently caught up with Curren$y as he kicked off his “Jet Life Tour 2012.” The usually animated MC was very tight lipped however when talking about the case.
“I don’t know what we gonna do, but when it’s all said and done, I’ll tell y’all about it,” he said somberly in his tour bus, parked outside the House of Blue before his concert.
