Gucci Mane has been accused of stiffing Big Scarr’s family over the funeral costs for the late rapper.
Scarr, who was signed to Gucci’s New 1017 Records label, passed away at the tender age of 22 on December 22. It was later reported he accidentally overdosed on prescription pills at his girlfriend’s house in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.
In an Instagram Live broadcast over the weekend, Scarr’s close friend and collaborator Quezz Ruthless put Guwop on blast for allegedly promising to pay for his former signee’s funeral, before ghosting his family when it was time to deliver.
“You say to them you finna pay for the funeral, then you lie,” Quezz said. “You didn’t have to lie! You ain’t have to go ghost either, cuh. It was gonna get paid for either way. You could’ve just said you ain’t have the money. You don’t get no type of respect for that, cuh.”
He added: “The minute that them folks called yo phone to see if you gon’ pay for the funeral, you blocked them. That’s not real, cuh. You ain’t straight. You only trying to act all real. You posted Scarr talking ’bout some long live — bruh, you ain’t do nothing, cuh.
“When they texted you and asked you about Scarr’s funeral, cuh, you told them folks that Keyshia’s birthday coming up. Man, y’all rich! Y’all can celebrate her birthday any day. Come on now, cuh.”

Quezz also claimed Gucci Mane asked Scarr’s family to return the rapper’s 1017 chains following his death, but informed the So Icy Boyz boss that won’t be happening.
“You not getting them chains, bruh,” he said matter-of-factly. “You ain’t even text and check on the family, but you text about some chains. I can’t believe you, cuh! You betta not come trying to get these chains. We gon’ have a real problem.
“Them chains, ours. Everything that we got, ours. You not getting it back, boy…Texting ’bout you want the chains; come get ’em then. Please come try to grab them.”
Scarr’s sister, Alexandra Woods, also called out Gucci Mane for allegedly failing to keep his funeral promise and requesting the return of Scarr’s jewelry.
“OMM he not getting them chains back!!” she wrote on social media. “YES He asked for the chains back & NO he not getting them hos back!! My brother earned ts my brother mean everything to us and for him to do him like that is low down Af!!!
“He said he couldn’t pay for the funeral because his wife birthday coming up n-gga you a millionaire Gucci a B I T C H!!! Gotta get in back in blood!!!!”

Big Scarr (real name Alexander Woods) was recently laid to rest in Memphis. Fellow rappers NLE Choppa and BigWalkDog were among those in attendance, but Gucci Mane didn’t show.
“You knew not to show up at that funeral,” Quezz barked during his Instagram Live. “Even if you would came, you were gonna get stomped at the door. Come on now, fool.”
Gucci Mane, who mourned Big Scarr’s death on social media at the time of his passing, has yet to respond to the allegations.
