In the last two weeks, one of the most bizarre stories have been reports of a falling out within Brick Squad 1017. The same day (March 15) that Lil Wayne was suffering a second round of seizures, Gucci Mane tweeted that his star protege, Waka Flocka Flame had been .

While Waka began to allude to the fact that rumors were true, a rep from Warner Bros. Records said two days later, that the star rapper’s Twitter was hacked.
A week later, this Monday (March 25), when Waka Flocka Flame performed alongside The Diplomats at the Diplomatic Immunity 10th Anniversary Show at New York City’s B.B. King’s Lounge, he altered his lyrics to publicly diss and distance himself from the former mentor and Ferrari Boyz album collaborator.
Yesterday (March 27), appearing on MTV’s Rap Fix Live, Waka explained what had been going on behind the scenes this March. “That Twitter wasn’t hacked because we had a conversation before that [tweet],” said Flocka, who describe that convo as “Real aggressive [with] words like, ‘Nigga let’s get up. Let’s do this.'”
Waka did not seem to understand Gucci’s calling him “disloyal” either. Instead, the son of Gucci’s longtime manager Deb Antney reminded viewers that he was involved in the Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy beef, pointing he “risked my life.”
Waka claimed that it was also impossible for him to be “dropped off” Brick Squad 1017, as he “owned a percentage,” in addition to his own Brick Squad Monopoly imprint. However, regardless of the terms of the business partnership, Waka stressed that he is severing all ties with his now-incarcerated partner. “It ain’t gonna never be no business, ever in life. No music or nothing,” he promised. “I don’t feel nothing he say out his mouth.”
While Flocka did say that he did not “wish jail” on anybody—including his present adversary. He did point out that Gucci may have lessons to learn though, adding, “I greet fans; he punches fans. It’s a difference.”
This morning it was reported that Gucci Mane was denied bond after an arrest this week. He is expected in court next month.
