Deb Antney, the mother of Waka Flocka Flame who helped steer both artists to stardom in the late 2000s, made the claim during an appearance on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion.
The Mizay Entertainment founder called Guwop “very selfish” and claimed he kicked up a fuss over a Nicki song placement, adding that the tension between her clients “hurt” her.
“You know what hurt me? Gucci couldn’t stand her,” she said. “He didn’t like Nicki. Because he couldn’t fuck her. He didn’t like her! But for you to give these big-ups to the shit that he did? That shit was crazy! He ain’t do nothing for you! He didn’t even like her!
“He had a fit when I had her getting on a record. But I wanted all of them to work together because we’re a family, so we all have to be together. It can’t be any of this.”
She added: “He’s very selfish. He’s very much to himself. I don’t even understand how he gets to sign artists. I never let artists sign to other artists because they not gonna let them become bigger than them.”
Antney’s comments contradict Gucci Mane’s previous claim that he once slept with Nicki Minaj.
“Me and waka fuck nikki minaj dats nothing,” he wrote during his infamous Twitter rant in 2013, which he later blamed on his lean addiction. “Her intervention my dick in her throat I moved dat bitch to atl. Bitch u was sleepin n d car. Bitch. I pulled dat bitch off wayne bus.”
Nicki laughed off Gucci’s claim, tweeting at the time: “May God strike me dead if I ever had sex wit that man. Lmfaoooooooooo. N#### da way ya #ugliness is set up #BubbaGump #Crackhead.”
She added: “He’s fighting so hard for one more ounce of relevance. Tyga and I turned down his feature request last Thursday. He’s sick and in dire need of rehab. I’m praying 4 him. 4real.”
Gucci and Nicki later squashed their beef in 2017 and reunited on the song “Make Love.” “Salute and much respect to @nickiminaj Zone6 stand up!!! #staytuned Legendary,” Guwop captioned a photo of them linking back up.
As for Deb Antney, Gucci Mane’s relationship with his former manager has been strained over the last decade. In his 2017 book The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, the 1017 boss accused Antney of stealing “Make the Trap Say Aye” from him and giving it to OJ Da Juiceman.
In an interview with Pootah TV, however, Antney claimed that wasn’t true. “‘Make The Trap Say Aye’ had nothing to do with it, it was OJ’s record,” she said. “The next thing I’m gonna tell you is that Gucci didn’t write that book in its entirety because half of the book is false.”
