The most recent Verzuz being between two of the most known rappers in the industry, Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy.
The two rap stars have had a decade-long beef, which started over a disagreement about the rights to Mane’s 2005 single “Icy” featuring Young Jeezy and Boo. Which sooner led to a rapper a part of Jeezy’s crew Henry Lee Clark III a.k.a. Pookie Loc being shot and killed after attempting to rob Gucci Mane.
It was announced on November 15th that the two would be in the same room for the first time in years for this legendary Verzuz battle. Many people didn’t expect the two to agree with doing this, especially with the beef between them.
